ok, it has a couple of decent laughs. But if you think about it for a moment, it's not good at all.

It's horribly old-fashioned (oh look, they're young guys who like to shag about and fear commitment - yep, seriously, it's the 15-year old plot from Friends). It's cliched and very predictable (the revelation that follows the phone call, and the ending, you'll see them both coming). Also, it's all very unbelievable (seriously, what world do these three guys live in where one of them will just whip his penis out and show the others?, jokes about taking shits, i get, but not dick exhibitions).

It reminds me of I give it a Year, throw in a load of swear words and a couple of sex scenes so you can market it as a rom-com with an edge. Or a bit of sass!

But worse, it feels like a blend of the worst parts of Sex and the City (the show and the 1st movie - and the abhorrent Friends with Kids.

So it's all set in the world of young, smug, upper-middle class New Yorkers. And also, neither men nor women are well represented in this movie.

I believe i saw this film so others wouldn't have to.Awful.Truly awful. Comes across as friends whinging about first world problems.On the plus side lovely to have a few exterior scenes in New York.Still, you could do that on google maps.

it was surprisingly Good. I know that may seem unbelievable but Zac Efron was not too bad. He was not on par with his co-stars as a fantastic comedic performance by Miles Teller really made the film rather funny at times. Also up and coming Michael B. Jordan was in good form pulling out a strong performance. This film for me reaches out to the men of this world rather then the women in my view as its actually about men in their twenties realising that you cant sleep around forever, and we all have to realise that at some point. Its by no means the best of rom-coms but its better than most others of this genre out at the moment.
