How To Be Single – Post Movie Review

It is amazing how many great movies came out in 2015 for women; movies about their sufferings, their rights and movements for their rights. One great movie that did come last year and I enjoyed profoundly was suffragette. One movie that will be released this year and I am anticipating is going to be how to be single.It is not as hardcore as this one but relates a lot to the problems suffered by women of the modern women and how they stumble and fall but learn to cope with it.


It is another movie you can enjoy with the girls. This may be an amazing way to let all the problems faced by women be dealt in a lighter tone while having the same impact on our hearts because some way or the other we all have these problems. Even happily married women can compare to some aspects o the movie.


Ok, I am a bit of a feminist you see. This does not mean I hate all men, I believe we need to co-exist and love and respect each other. I also believe that this is not really the case. Most men want a younger prettier version of a woman the same way as they want a new red sports car. Women sometimes tend to hang on tight to the man to whom she is committed.


After being heart-broken however, sometimes they go wild. After all you cannot be fragile and expect to survive this horrible, horrible world.   Sounds like a forbidden and rather harsh subject, does it not? Well not how Liz Tucillo writes it. How to be Single is going to be released in 2016.


It is based on a novel written by Tucillo with the same title back in 2009. It is finally being converted in a motion picture and let me tell you girls I cannot wait. Great books make great movies. Rated at 3.6 out of 5 by Amazon, we have great expectations from this one. The cast seems promising as well making it a complete deal. For those of you who have not read the book, sit tight and find out how to be single and yet have a great time! Girl Power!

Story Line

Basically, the story is based around a publicist named Julie Jensen who is a 37 year old in New York. It starts off when her friend Georgia’s husband decides to leave her for a sexy samba teacher. She is quite upset and asks Julie to arrange a night out for single girls so she can explore the realms of being single and realizes it is not so bad after all.

The night does not really work out for Julie and instead she decides to figure out how so many girls around the world cope up with being single and how they survive this misery. She ends up going to different countries around the world and explores what is singledom all about. She ends up doing the exact opposite of what she sets out for and falls in love with a man who is already married.

Misery however does not only stick with Julie and her friends back in New York are not dealing with a better fate either. Learning to be single mothers while surviving horrible blind dates and dealing with custody issues is not easy either. Liz Tucillo with her brilliant writing skills has made this all rather comical. Sit tight ladies this is going to be a fun watch.

She is an American actress and a model that was born in Austin, Texas on 4th October 1989 and I say this because she is only 26and has done such a great variety of roles out of which some are quite untraditional we must say.

Why Should You Watch It?

  • The movie is being released in 12th February 2016. The perfect date for all those girls who will be single this valentine’s day; so this is probably the best reason for all the single girls out there.
  • It’s ok to be single, girl it is ok to except it and furthermore it is perfectly fine to embrace and sometimes go wild with it because you are a person who deserves happiness and sometimes we need a little motivation to do that. This movie is going to be that motivation!
  • The other reason is because we keep stumbling and falling in our lives while facing so many of its everyday problems. It is great when we can experience all of those problems in a comical way.
  • We learn to take our problems and our lives lightly. No matter how tough a day might be, we can add a little laughter to it if we are really adamant about it. Learn to have fun no matter how tough it is, is a beautiful lesson this movie teaches to its audience.
