Dale is a sweet girl who just can’t catch a break with men. Everyone she dates seems to cheat on her. Finally, she gives up and decides she might as well move to L.A. where everyone is just as fake as everywhere else, only they don’t hide it.
Slightly Single in L.A. is utterly mind-numbing. At first, I thought my numb mind was the result of being sick and lacking sleep. So I went out with a friend, grabbed a delicious chicken wrap and some tea, then came home and took a nap before moving on to the writing portion of this blog.
The thought of this movie re-numbed my brain and it took three tries before I was able to describe it in the first paragraph without just writing “blah blah blah blah.”
As far as I could tell, Christie Will (Baby Bootcamp, Her Infidelity, Twisted Tales of my 9 to 5) was trying to write a more accessible version of Sex and the City. It wasn’t successful. What she managed to create was a step-by-step recipe that never deviated from the norm and featured the shallowest cast of characters. I couldn’t even tell you if the acting was decent because there was so little to the characters, it might as well have been a junior high school play with a bigger budget.
It had a few cute moments, but they were difficult to enjoy because they were surrounded by the rest of the film.

P.S. Very soon I will be adding a new contributor to the blog on a trial basis. If it works out, each movie will have two opinions. Stay tuned!
