Movie Review: He's Just Not That Into You (2009)


He's Just Not That Into You could be the "Crash" of romantic comedies-- it weaves different stories, but overlaps loosely and the stories have a good message to share.

The film features a star-studded ensemble cast of Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Connelly, Scarlett Johansson, Ginnifer Goodwin, Ben Affleck, Justin Long, Kevin Connolly, and Bradley Cooper. As you can see, it's a rather long list, so not all the stars are given adequate attention and character development. The film does drop hints on the personalities of the characters, so if you're not familiar with North American culture (especially the dating culture), you may find the film a little too "alien".

The film is based on the best-selling book with the same title and is sort of a "Dating For Dummies" for the uninitiated on how both men and women handle dating. The film looks at the situation primarily from a female perspective and it doesn't really hide its spots as a chick flick. But I'm sure that some guys will enjoy the film.

He's Just Not That Into You is a nice date movie-- great for a Girls' Night Out or movie date for couples. I highly recommend it if you're a fan of American sitcoms like Friends or How I Met Your Mother.


Rating: 3.5/5
