From IMDb: “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.”

Poster Rating: C / C- (4)

Review: (#1) I’ve seen a lot of poster designs similar to this and few of them are very impressive. this isn’t one of them. (#2-#5) While the character posters have an appealing color palette, the overall structure and design is fairly lackluster.

Trailer Rating: B / F

Review: (#1 & #2) When your red band trailer is identical to your green band, you are wasting people’s time. With the Deadpool trailers, the red bands were stuffed full of foul language and gratuitous violence, a better example of the film than the more tame green band trailers. With several others I’ve reviewed this week, there are a few slight tweaks and a couple of dirty words, but that’s it. Here, they are the same. I cannot recall anything that was dissimilar between the two. That being said, the first trailer has a lot of modestly funny moments, which may be enough to draw audiences to the theater.
