I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
He's Just Not That Into You
Are you the exception...or the rule?
Remember that really cute guy who said he'd call...and didn't? Maybe he lost your number. Maybe he's in the hospital. Maybe he's awed by your beauty, brains or success. Or maybe He's Just Not That into You.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
He’s Just Not That Into You seems to consist of two types of women, and in my recent foray into these mind meltingly hideous chick-flicks they seem to be standard - the neurotic stalker and the bitch. Some even multitask (because only women can) and manage to be a scary obsessive and self-obsessed bitch. Whilst it is an ensemble film, I guess to show the whole spectrum of fabulous womanhood (it's almost enough to turn you gay), the main focus is on a girl called Gigi. I assume her shtick is supposed to be endearing or her problems universal but she comes across as Annie Wilkes' even more psychotic younger sister. You could stick her character in a horror film…
I'm afraid there aren't enough words to describe all the things that are wrong with this movie, but here is a list of some of them:
1. The story is more sexist than a vacuum cleaner-commercial from the fifties.
2. The characters have less personality than lego bricks.
3. The dialogue is more annoying than the sound of a billion alarm clocks ringing.
4. The characters are more stereotypical than Barbie and Ken.
5. The whole movie is about as fun as tonsillitis.
6. The guy from Entourage is in it.
My youngest daughter kept me awake this night as she couldn't sleep.
This was the only thing flying around on the myriad of TV channels at my disposal.
So essentially she made me watch this.
Her inheritance will be halved.
Nothing to say about the film then?
It's as bad as the title if it had been a porn movie.
(And that joke doesn't even come close to how sexist this film is)
When I watched this, I swore I would never put myself through the torture again.
Twice. Twice I've seen it now.
Or you are either into this movie at the beginning or you are not into it at all from the opening scene when all the characters are introduced with intersecting love stories. I was into it from the very beginning thanks to interisting characters and a wide range of relationships (married couples, long term relationships, and dating). I know this is a chick flick, but it has some very funny scenes as well, and the characters are more complex and not one dimensional as is the case with most chick flicks. But most importantly this movie dos not have the cliche finale in which everyone ends up together (although it is the case with most of the characters in this…
Damnit, this is another film that I will reluctantly have to add to my guilty pleasure list.
Starring a pretty decent cast ensemble, including Scarlett Johansson, Bradley Cooper, Justin Long, Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Connelly, and Drew Barrymore, He’s Just Not That Into You is another one of those overly cliché rom-coms with so many characters and story lines that, despite how rubbish it may be, you'll more than likely find something to relate to.
Although the characters aren't particularly likeable, they are all so entirely over-exaggerated that there will be some small part of their obsessive personalities that you will undoubtedly see in yourself. That's this films one main quality - looking at a number of different relationships…
I need to re-watch it!!
This movie is wrong on so many levels uagh.
My guiltiest pleasure. While it reinforces all kinds of unhealthy male/female stereotypes, this ensemble cast is razor sharp. Never has heartbreak been so much fun.
I'm Just Not That Into This Film
Nota = 6,5
The .5 was for that "You are my exception" line near the end. I'm a sucker. I know.
This was a really good movie. It had a lot of the 90's tropes of on screen chapter text and voice over narration and the interweaving narrative thing, and all thought those are kind of tired now for what it was the story was easy and kind of original. At the half way mark you really don't know what is going to happen or who will end up with who. I think for a Rom-Com that is quite and accomplishment. No great actors but a cast of tons of good actors really help this along as well. I enjoyed this.
