How to Be Single movie quotes follow young singles who live it up in New York City. The romantic comedy movie was adapted into a screenplay by Dana Fox, Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein from the book of the same name by Liz Tuccillo. Directed by Christian Ditter, How to Be Single opened in theaters on February 12, 2015.

In How to Be Single, Alice (Dakota Johnson) breaks up with her longterm boyfriend and friend Robin (Rebel Wilson) comforts her by taking her out for drinks. It's been a while since Alice has been in the dating game so Robin, who has her social game down to a science, teaches Alice the ropes. Between waxing down there, scoring free drinks, partaking in one night stands and quick hangover recovery, Alice has a number of tricks to pass along to her new partner in crime.

But as much as Robin and Alice, along with other friends such as Lucy (Alison Brie) and Meg (Leslie Mann), are enjoying the single life, when the casual nature of their personal lives turns into serious feelings, the dating waters become terribly hard to navigate.

How to Be Single had some stiff competition at the box office when it opened alongside Deadpool, Hail, Caesar!, Kung Fu Panda 3, The Finest Hours, and The Revenant.
