Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:
- Francisco Cangiano @ CineXpress [Spanish]
- Bill Clark @ From The Balcony
- Excerpt: How To Be Single is unfocused, horrifically shot and edited, and not nearly as raunchy as it thinks it is.
- Blake Crane @ BlakeCrane.com
- Excerpt: How to Be Single doesn’t completely subvert the contemporary rom-com conventions, but it tweaks them just enough to be consistently enjoyable
- Jim Dixon @ Examiner.com
- Excerpt: The trials and tribulations of the modern American twentysomething are dissected in minute detail in the somewhat mistitled “How to be Single.” In fact, none of the large, ensemble cast of characters actually has much of a clue. Are modern mating rituals really this complicated? It would be depressing to think so.
- Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
- Excerpt: The stories never fully gel.
- Courtney Howard @ ReelVixen.com
- Excerpt: Just swipe left on this one.
- MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
- Excerpt: Hollywood does not know how to make a movie about women that isn’t about the pursuit of romance. Even when women say they don’t want romance, they’re lying.
- Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
- Excerpt: How to Be Singe contradicts itself. It claims to address what it means to be single today – partying, having fun, and dating. However, it’s a lie. It’s just like all the rest with every character biting their nails until where/whenever they finally meet the one.
- Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
- Excerpt: “How to Be Single” goes down lighter than an Irish Car Bomb, and it’s refreshing to see a movie about women that doesn’t hate them.
- Kristin Dreyer Kramer @ NightsAndWeekends.com
- Brent McKnight @ Cinema Blend
- Darren Mooney @ the m0vie blog
- Excerpt: A singular rom com?
- Frank Ochieng @ Critical Movie Critics
- Excerpt: Relentlessly choppy and toothless, How to be Single is sentimentally hollow and squanders the opportunity to give a decent observational edginess to young women and their continued dating woes matched by a lost sense of personalized purpose. One would be better served conducting random online searches at Match.com.
- Kristy Puchko @ CBR.com
- Excerpt: there’s enough gags that do work, and enough stars (Johnson, Mann, Holm, Lacy, Manzoukas, Brie) who are affable and inherently hilarious enough to make this mediocre flick worthwhile.
- James Roberts @ Glide Magazine
- Excerpt: It’s refreshing to watch a rom-com where, no matter how hard the heroine might pine for a prince charming, she ultimately holds back from the pitfalls of coupledom in favor of becoming the kind of person she wants to be.
- Diego Salgado @ Guía del Ocio [Spanish]
- Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
- Excerpt: It embraces so many sitcom clichés—mixed with periodic girls-gone-wild shtick—that any deeper message it might want to convey is lost in the shuffle.
