What makes a woman swipe right for Mr. Wrong and left for Mr. Right? This simultaneously entertaining and enlightening comedy is a fresh, witty, and all-too-relatable look at the real-life science behind our (often regrettable) romantic impulses. Writer-director Whitney Cummings (2 Broke Girls) stars as no-nonsense neuroscientist Julia, whose research into the biochemistry of the female brain is illustrated by three couples: newlyweds Zoe (Cecily Strong, Ghostbusters) and Greg (basketball superstar Blake Griffin), whose career troubles seep into their relationship; Lisa (Sofia Vergara, Modern Family) and Steven (Deon Cole Black-ish), who are looking to spice up their stuck-in-a-rut marriage; and Lexi (Lucy Punch, Into The Woods) who cant help trying to change her boyfriend Adam (James Marsden, Westworld). Meanwhile, the straight-laced Julias own synapses start to fire when a handsome new subject (Toby Kebbell, Kong Skull Island) joins her study ...

Whitney Cummings, who wrote, directed, and starred as the neurotic brain researcher, cleverly used brain graphics to point out the differences in men and women, and segue into scenes with the couples.
It was very refreshing to see a romantic comedy where hunky guys are the solid, stabilizing influences in relationships for a change.
I get very tired of the male cliche womanizer who finally falls in love, but not before almost losing his love object by being a jerk, somehow redeems himself, and catches her right before boarding a plane.
The men in this movie are the sensitive, committed partners, able to understand, communicate their feelings and nurture the women while still retaining their masculinity.
I didn't notice the role reversal immediately, and I'm not sure if it was subtle, or that we're just so used to seeing women as heroines, and don't take their transgressions as seriously. Although, I forgot, Adam (James Marsden) DOES finally use the gift certificate his girlfriend gave him to straighten hair. He came home very upset when he didn't like it. I guess that's not to subtle.
It would be devastating for a woman to find her husband masturbating to porn, but Greg (Blake Griffin), the pro basketball star, catches his ambitious marketing executive wife, Zoe, (Cecily Strong) in the throes with her laptop and headphones, and the interaction was completely different if it had been Greg getting caught.
The entire cast was excellent, and I'm sure we will be hearing more from Whitney Cummings!
I enjoyed how the movie addressed stereotypes in a non-political or biased way. Seems rare these days...
This movie provided a scientific take on romantic relationships, while making you feel all the things. Whitney Cummings was stiffly magical and showcased her talent as not only an amazing actor, but a bomb ass director. Like, queen is killing it right now. Please direct all the movies....
This is truly an ensemble piece as each character has memorable moments, and is sure to furnish any viewer with full body laughs. Like I knew Cecily Strong (all of her work) and Blake Griffin (Episode of Broad City) were funny.... but they killed the subtle awkward game in this one. Also, has Blake Griffin always been kinda sexy? Am I about to stalk him on social media right now orrr.....
GO WATCH THIS MOVIE!...RIGHT NOW!!
