How to Be Single Summary
New York City is full of lonely hearts seeking the right match, and what Alice, Robin, Lucy, Meg, Tom and David all have in common is the need to learn how to be single in a world filled with ever-evolving definitions of love.
A horrifically bad romantic comedy that serves as a celebration of entitlement, consumerism, and shallow behavior.
This concept of single still assumes that a woman must have a man, that a girl's only choice is between one boyfriend or 20.
Nothing here will blow you away -- think of this one as taking baby steps away from what's formulaic.
It's chickbait for Valentine's weekend, a fluffball that plays like warmed-over subplots from Sex and the City.
It ... exists in a candy-coated New York where everyone has infinite money, exactly six nonwhite people ever speak and Christmas is always gently covered with pristine, powdery snow.
