Anna Faris attends the 'Marie Claire' magazine showing of her new film "What's Your Number." The film is a romantic comedy about a woman who begins to track down her ex-boyfriends in hope that one of them became a 'winner' in the time that she's not spoken to them. The film stars Anna Faris as the main character and Chris Evans as her love interest. (Pacific Coast News)more pics » Anna Faris (Pacific Coast News) Anna Faris returns to the big screen September 30 in What's Your Number, a comedy that has failed to generate many positive reviews.

Despite an impressive cast that includes Chris Evans and SNL funnyman Andy Samberg, the film hasn't received much love from the critics. According to the popular movie review aggregator, Rotten Tomatoes, only 30 percent of critics have written favorable write-ups.

TIME magazine described the film as "sad and infuriating," while the Philadelphia Inquirer called it "barely endurable." But perhaps the comedic timing is geared more toward a foreign audience. Writing in Britain's Daily Mail, Christopher Tookey had this to say about Faris' new film: "It made me laugh more than most movies this year, and confirms my belief that Anna Faris could be a big star if she ever gets offered a script worthy of her talents."

If the Twilight series taught us anything, it's that poorly reviewed films can become box office champions. So it's too early to predict how well What's Your Number performs. Of course, without Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart in it, we don't imagine it will smash any records.
