* AristicLicenseStatistics: Ally is worried about a statistic to the effect that women with more than 20 sex partners over a lifetime will have a low likelihood of ultimately finding a husband. She's worried about the fact that her next partner will bring her from 20 to twenty. But of course, it would be more accurate to realize that at worst, her new sex partners will change her from exactly 20 to exactly 21, so that, being the same person, she'll be more typical of them than of a category that includes both herself and all the women who have an extremely high partner count that [[ReallyGetsAround is really far too high to fall within the norm.]] Alternatively, maybe the exactly-20 women are just as likely to be spinsters as the women with more partners, and the fact that the statisticians set their cutoff at 20 proves nothing except that 20 is a round number.

A 2011 [[RomanticComedy rom com]] about [[Creator/AnnaFaris Ally Darling]], who, after yet another sexual partner that didn't want anything 'serious', comes across an article in a women's magazine saying that the average number of sexual partners women have had is 10.5, and women who sleep with over 20 men never find a husband. Her number? [[ReallyGetsAround 19!]] Actually, wait, make that 20.

Suddenly desperate, Ally and her [[TheCasanova playboy neighbor]] [[Creator/ChrisEvans Colin]] begin their search to find one of the 20 who may be "The One", so she can make him her husband without reaching the dreaded 21.
