Movie Info

When Charlie Carroll (Aaron Tveit) quits his job and his girlfriend on the same day, it seems as though he's finally found freedom. But after a quick dip in the dark waters of the NYC dating pool, Charlie begins to wonder if he's made a mistake. He's not equipped for single life. In fact, Charlie might not be equipped for life in general. With no job and no love, Charlie is forced to go on a journey of self-discovery so intense that he begins to suffer from surreal hallucinations, flashbacks, and sex fantasies. Will he find "the one?" Or did that ship already sail, taking with it his only hopes for relationship sanity?

Critic Reviews for Better Off Single

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

With its muddy timeline, kaleidoscope of fantasies, flashbacks and hallucinations, broad characterizations and sitcom slickness, the film never settles down long enough to congeal, much less feel remotely connected to reality.

October 6, 2016 | Full Review…

[Better Off Single] seems to just fall a bit short of what it has set out to achieve.

August 6, 2018 | Full Review…

Tired romcom's sweet message drowned out by cliches, sexism.

October 7, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Trite and annoying.
