How To Be Single Review

Very Good

There isn't much originality in this rude female-led comedy, but its observations on single life are a nicely updated twist on the Sex and the City formula. The film is also often very funny, keeping the energy levels high while refusing to go down the usual narrative route in each of the loosely intertwined plot-strands.

It's set in New York, of course, where Alice (Dakota Johnson) is newly single and starting a new job. Her colleague Robin (Rebel Wilson) takes her under her wing, teaching her how to be single in the big city. Alice's sister Meg (Leslie Mann) is a maternity doctor who's suddenly feeling the need to have a child of her own. Then just as she becomes pregnant using a sperm bank, she meets the outrageously charming Ken (Jake Lacy), who she thinks might be too young for her. Meanwhile, Alice's neighbour Lucy (Alison Brie) is flirting with the womanising local barman Tom (Anders Holm) as she looks for her perfect man.

Yes, this is another movie in which women define themselves by their aching need for a man. This kind of undermines the "you have to be happy on your own" message, although at least the three main romantic-comedy plots don't fit into the usual cliched structure. The film is packed with frank, girly conversations, exploring how it feels to be single in a society in which coupling up is seen as the ultimate goal. So while commenting on every possible aspect of sex and relationships, the script also tries to say that it's perfectly fine to remain happily unattached. Thankfully, the cast is grounded enough to balance the comedy and romance in realistic situations. Johnson, Brie and Mann all deliver funny, revealing performances as smart women who make silly decisions. Wilson, by contrast, is mere comic relief in the same role she always plays.

Life is full of nice surprises and 'The Tonight Show' host has certainly shown his spontaneity as he's only now revealed that his second child has been born. The media hadn't had so much of a sniff of baby news since Fallon and Juvonen welcomed Winnie Rose Fallon into the world in July 2013, but it seems they are dead set on developing a large family of their own. Frances Cole made her arrival on Wednesday morning according to a representative of the family.

It was the moment Jimmy Fallon's fans had been waiting for: after his wife screenwriter Nancy Juvonen gave birth to a healthy baby girl on Tuesday (23rd July), devotees to his Late Night TV show clamoured to learn the name of the little one almost as much as the world were rabid for details on the royal baby who was born a day earlier...almost.

Last night, the 38-year-old comedian opened his show with a special monologue setting the record straight about his newfound fatherhood: "I'm your host 'dada.' I'm the father of a beautiful baby girl, she's so cute. Her name is Winnie Rose Fallon and she's so cute...she's five pounds nine ounces" gushed the presenter to shrieks of excitement from his audience. It was inevitable that amidst the recent media storm, the royal baby would be mentioned in relation to the timing of Winnie Rose's birth: "Yes William and Kate, we'll definitely set up a play date, stop bothering me. Yes, everyone's still talking about the other baby."
