After her partner breaks up with her on her 39th birthday, Gaby tackles her fears of loneliness as well as preconceptions of what it means for a woman to be single.
User Reviews: I’m a bit surprised about the current 4.9 rating here. I think this flick is a lot better than that would lead you to believe.

I’m wondering if it might be because Chelsea Peretti is the kind of person who people either hate or love. I can definitely see how you’d find her awful if you didn’t like her dry, standoffish, ironic, dark sense of humour. She might even come off as arrogant.

If really like it, though, and I like her a lot. And be warned, her character in this movie is exactly the same as Chelsea is on-stage or in anything else you might’ve seen her. Perhaps that’s also a drawback for many people? Personally, that’s what I hoped for. More sassiness from the crank 😀

The story is cookie-cutter, and the acting is so-so, as is directing, editing, production, all of it. It’s pretty bland, so it’s all down to whether or not you enjoy run-off-the-mill basic but solid rom-coms, with the addition of Chelsea’s wit and humour. If you don’t, trust the current 4.9 score and stay clear. If you do, trust my rating of 7 (with a point-five, if I could) and give it a shot.
