like the actors but the movie lacks heart

Three NYC friends have love trouble. Jason (Zac Efron) and Daniel (Miles Teller) draw cover art for books. Jason has a theory about girls who starts asking questions that begins with the word SO. Mikey (Michael B. Jordan) is getting dumped by his wife Vera (Jessica Lucas). Jason and Daniel tries to get Mikey laid along with their wingwoman Chelsea (Mackenzie Davis). Jason hooks up with Ellie (Imogen Poots) but he mistakes her for a hooker. To their surprise, she's at their work with a book for their next cover art. Alana (Addison Timlin) is one of Jason's bang buddies.

I really like all 3 guys as actors. I like the girls. I find the characters shallow and not in an interesting way. Sometimes it has some funny lines. It has some fun scenes but they don't add up to compelling relationships or even characters. This cast deserves a better script that has real heart. All the blame has to be laid on new writer/director Tom Gormican. Daniel and Chelsea come closest to a compelling story.

So where is this going?

Three guys vow to stay single. Jason (Zac Efron) is a NYC book cover designer who plays the field. He doesn't realize he is dating a woman until after they break up with him. Daniel (Miles Teller) works with Jason and has a friends with benefits relationship with Chelsea (Mackenzie Davis). Guess how that works out...hint it's a chick flick. Mike (Michael B. Jordan) is a doctor whose wife (Jessica Lucas) wants a divorce and is cheating on him with a lawyer. Jason meets Ellie (Imogen Poots) who is everything he wants in a woman as this throws a wrench into the "everybody stay single and play the field like we're in college" vow.

This is a chick flick poorly disguised as a guy's film. We know it is a chick flick because it is overrated due to Zac Efron being in it. It tosses some crude humor at us and some better barbs about relationships, but frankly it is the same old Hollywood shtick that brings nothing new to the table. Having said that, the actors did a fine job in their roles made unconvincing by a trite script.

Will do as a chick flick rental, although I thought "The Other Woman" was a funnier chick flick.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex. No nudity. Efron nearly nude
