Comedy, Romantic comedy
This charming and frequently hilarious romp jumbles the stale conventions of the rom-com genre to delicious effect. Nominally based on a book by Liz Trucillo, the incisive script bucks expectations at almost every turn, from a May-December couple (Leslie Mann, Jake Lacy) toying with gender roles to a bawdy-best-friend type (Rebel Wilson) who blasts the adorable lead (Dakota Johnson) for losing herself in men. This may be an escapist ode to singlehood—the heroine is a beautiful, stylish twentysomething with a gorgeous New York City apartment—but at least it's bold enough to stick with its "love yourself first" message. Christian Ditter directed; with Alison Brie and Anders Holm.
