"Lewd Modern Angst"
WHAT’S YOUR NUMBER? is a crude romance comedy with a romantic worldview. Ally Darling has just found out that, for women, sleeping with more then twenty men means you will never get married, and Ally is already at 19! So, Ally attempts to relocate all her ex’s in a hunt to never go past the number 20.
Ally has just broken up with her boyfriend and lost her job in marketing. As if things couldn’t get much worse, Ally picks up an article saying that women who sleep with more then 20 men will never get married. Decidedly finding her number, Ally writes down all her exes, only to come to the conclusion she’s slept with 19 men. It doesn’t take Ally a long time to realize that the number is quite high and all her friends have a much lower number, so Ally drinks to the prospect of not sleeping with anyone else but the final one, her future husband.
Well, Ally drinks too much and ends up sleeping with her old boss, reaching the number 20. From this point, Ally decides to go back through all of her ex’s to find love, so that she doesn’t end up sleeping with more then 20 men.
Helping out Ally is her neighbor, Colin, who, in exchange, gets a hiding spot the morning after he sleeps with women. Colin helps Ally locate and hunt down her former exes in order to reconnect. All the while, Colin and Ally build a relationship without even knowing it, spending time with each other without sexual interactions. Just as the excitement with Colin reaches its high point, Ally’s golden ex comes along, Jake, a rich, cultured, handsome man.
WHAT’S YOUR NUMBER? is a very crude romantic comedy with the major theme of sex. Though Ally does abstain from sex and, in doing so, finds the love of her life, she has already chosen to sleep with multiple men, and in the end this is not condemned but seen as part of her accepted history.
