Di­rec­tor Chris­tian Dit­ter cast Dakota John­son, Les­lie Mann, rebel Wil­son

Newly sin­gle Alice (John­son) hits the Man­hat­tan bar scene with her broody sis­ter (Mann) and party girl pal (Wil­son). this zippy com­edy based on Liz tuc­cillo’s book is crowded with char­ac­ters and con­flict­ing mes­sages about gen­der and re­la­tion­ship eti­quette — it’s easy to spot the in­flu­ence of both male and fe­male screen­writ­ers. But it taps into a few re­al­is­tic dat­ing dilem­mas and for ev­ery cliché there’s a sharp, silly im­pro­vised aside from Wil­son in a sexed-up ver­sion of her Pitch Per­fect per­sona. With its themes and lo­ca­tions, cock­tails and heels, this is giddy, glam­orous cat­nip for Sex And The City fans.
