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.

Ally's [[spoiler: number one]] political ex, Gerry Perry, AKA 'Creepy Puppet Guy'.who wants her to become his beard for his political career.

* ReallyGetsAround: Ally, once she reads a magazine article about the typical number of partners and realizes she's way past that mark.

to:

* NewOldFlame: Invoking this trope is the whole premise of the film. In an effort to not let her sexual partner count go above twenty, Ally goes through her available exes in order to find one that's perfect for her, citing her sister Daisy's success with her husband (who was also NewOldFlame).
* ReallyGetsAround: Ally, once she reads a magazine article about the typical number of partners and realizes she's way past that mark. Colin is far more promiscuous than she is, though, given the number of one night stands we see him have over the course of the movie.
* RomanticFalseLead: Jake Adams, Ally's ex from high school. He's handsome, charming, well-connected, runs a foundation in Africa, etc., and Ally's prim mother approves of their relationship wholeheartedly. She eventually breaks up with him because even though she considers him "perfect," they're not perfect for each other.
