What's Your Number Trailer: Another Demonstration of the Power of Romantic Comedies to Suck All of the Talent Out of Their Casts

The upcoming Anna Faris romantic comedy, What’s Your Number, has everyone in it. No, seriously. I think the director gave his assistant and SAG directory, and when the assistant asked, “Who do you want me to get?” the director just said, “All of them.”

Look at all these people that we (mostly) like contained herein: Chris Pratt, Aziz Ansari, Thomas Lennon, Joel McHale, Zachary Quinto, Andy Samberg, Anthony Mackie, and Eliza Coupe.

And it still looks like a smashed turd clinging to the bottom of a shit-boot. Talent clearly means diddly-peep when it’s confined by the parameters of a shitty romantic comedy. Wanna hear the premise? Or would you like to shoot yourself in the head first? It’s about a woman who hears an old wives’ tale that, if you date 20 men and still aren’t married, you’ll never get married. So, Farris — who has apparently already hit her number — has to go back and track down all those men to find a suitable husband. Chris Evans helps her in this endeavor.

Who will she ever end up with?

What’s Your Number? comes from television director Mark Mylod, who I hope chokes to death on a Skittle. Choke on the rainbow, asshole.
