He's Just Not That Into You (2009)
Remember that really cute girl/guy who said they'd call – and didn't? Maybe they lost your number. Maybe they're in the hospital. Maybe they're awed by your looks, brains or success. Or maybe... They're just not that into you.

This movie can be viewed as a shallow characterisation of stereotypical women (and men); but actually they only have so much time dealing with a lot of characters so I think it's understandable, and I also think the movie has a point- and the point is: Life and relationships are complex. Everyone is different, one woman/ man is different from every other and so no relationship can have a set rule or follow a pattern exactly. Perhaps lots follow a pattern for one reason or another, but they are all unique really. Many women (for example) are brought up believing their life and the relationship they find will go a certain way (house, marriage, kids etc), so they may try to influence that outcome if they find themselves in a promising relationship, because they think it's what they want or it is what they want, but unfortunately life is challenging, relationships must always be evolving and not all relationships are bound close enough to last. It may come down to asking, how well do you know your partner and what your partner wants now. The point of the movie, I think, is that relationships should be allowed to happen organically, from true interest and natural attraction, and, as they grow, emotional honesty is the best policy. These days it seems this route is the exception. But it should be the rule.
The Baltimore-set movie of interconnecting story arcs deals with the challenges of reading or misreading human behavior. The worst part about the 2009 romantic film He's Just Not That Into You is the entire plot surrounding this couples there are a few good ones like Ben Affleck and Jennifer Aniston who are easily the best part of the entire movie, the Jennifer Connelly, Scarlett Johansson and Bradley Cooper trio was entertaining but it could have been much better and then there's the absolutely worst part of the film which is this girl named Gigi played by Ginnifer Goodwin and i don't think that the actress was the problem she was actually decent the reason why she was annoying it was the character itself i mean i have seen movies where a girl tried to kill herself because she "lost" that one true love and of course the other way around as well but this chick is so desperate to be with someone to the point where you can't even take her seriously anymore it just feels cheesy and dumb and i'm sorry but she ruined the entire film for me. The father - daughter relationship between Kris Kristofferson and Jennifer Aniston was also another aspect i really liked, Drew Barrymore's character is almost forgettable and Kevin Connolly is just not that interesting. Overall to sum it all up 'He's Just Not That Into You' is a below average comedy/romance film with some good performances but also some pretty useless characters plus the running time of 129 minutes is absurd for a film of this kind because there's like 2 or 3 scenes that could be removed very easily.

Smart and interesting, pretty funny and realistic for a romantic comedy! I love this genre of movies but it is not very often that good ones are made any more...so this one was pretty refreshing to watch... and a bit more modern for it's theme! I think anyone can have a good time watching it, it is also pretty insightful for how men and women think and what mistakes the different way of thinking generates... The dialogues are pretty interesting...I think all ladies should have a look and pay attention to them! It is a bit depressing at some points of the movie...but also refreshing and hopeful some other times...just like dating in real life!But guys also... Enjoy :)
I generally like these types of movies with interconnected stories and a whose-who cast although I have seen better in "Valentines Day" and "Love Actually."Decent ensemble here but most of the women are freakin nuts and I found them frustrating to watch especially Ginnifer Goodwin, sitting by the phone, making desperate excuses for loser men. When did the purpose of life become solely about finding a man? This is the message that Sex & The City puts out there too, Why? Jennifer Connelly was also painful, as a control freak with a cheating husband (Bradley Cooper). -I'd cheat with Scarlett Johansson too though. Justin Long seemed miscast as the womanizing bartender and would have done better if he'd exchanged roles with Kevin Connelly, the needy real estate agent. Ben Affleck has a smaller role, playing the commitment-phobe good guy and Jennifer Aniston goes about her usual "Rachelness" managing to look fantastic in a pair of jeans but still be a big loser where love is concerned. Enjoyed the story arc at the wedding with her father (Kris Kristopherson) 02.27.14
