WHAT'S YOUR NUMBER? is an uninspiring romantic comedy plods from one superficial moment to the next, telling us nothing we haven't been told before and showing us nothing we haven't seen. The concept is weak, the humor banal and the leading lady fails to distract us from the flawed execution of this unlikely tale.

And that includes the 3rd Annual Zombie Walk Invasion in Downtown Phoenix
Phoenix, AZ - Legions of undead will converge in Downtown Phoenix for Zombie Walk 3 as part of a full cauldron of Halloween fun Saturday, October 29.

And they'll be able to get so much more at the gathering at Heritage Square & Science Park. More than 2,000 walking dead showed up for the main event last year - the Zombie Walk.
There are so many disastrous scenes in this movie that it could have been made by a group of students in their first year at film school. The clichés are endless, tedious melodrama abounds and it feels more like a humorless spoof than the action thriller it's supposed to be.
