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.
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)
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.
When I watched this, I swore I would never put myself through the torture again.
Twice. Twice I've seen it now.
I love rom-coms, so I'm naturally more lenient when it comes to rating them. The problem with this one is that it is half a good film. Some bits of it are quite good (read: Johansson, Cooper, Goodwin). Some bits aren't (read: everything else). I'm not even including Drew Barrymore in that considering she has about 15 minutes screentime in total, if that, despite being billed third. False advertising, people.
I like that bartender guy, Justin Wong I think, he's cool. Continuing the theme of films seeming like tv shows here we have Sex and The City but with guys perspective too. Some likeable characters, different stories to help avoid any one getting too dull worked well, though none of them particularly strong besides the main two characters. Enjoyable watch, no reason to see again though (also predictable ending but his speech was good so meh)
This movie ventures to be not just an ensemble movie, but an ensemble movie comprised of every type of romantic comedy out there. Friends who are soul mates? Totally. Friend-zoned sad sacks? Sure. Dissolving marriages? Great. "Candid" interviews? Fuck it. Over exaggerated criticisms of online dating? Love it.
It's so many things that it is almost hard to not recognize its self-awareness as a bloated attempt to criticize the whole genre. Of course, this criticism ends up really just feeling like really poor caricatures.
What makes this movie not totally void of fun to watch is the amount of people who have since proven themselves so much better. Just in the last year or so we've seen Bradley Cooper kill…
A decently fun guilty pleasure.
Simpatico..ma...Ben Affleck sbaglia tutto!
It led me to believe that it is the rule, not the exception (which was a refreshing idea), but nah, it still was about the exceptions. Also the characters are really creepy. Especially Gigi.
Soy demasiado Gigi en esta vida. ¿Dónde está mi Alex?
Grande elenco (leia-se Scarlett Johansson), bons diálogos, filme longo. Mas dá pra assistir sem cochilar.
I never really got into this (can't help that!). There was no spark. You know, there is this other movie, Love, Actually, where this same theme is covered in a much more successful way. Large ensemble cast. Loosely intertwining stories. Pontificating on relationships and love. While being lighthearted and gently humorous. This movie didn't really click in the same way, and went on too long. It was never bad, just didn't work out.
There's a huge number of famous people in the ensemble cast. I think all I knew is that Drew Barrymore was in it. And she's not even in it that much. So, it had nice surprise value when more and more famous people kept showing…
- FRED: The Movie
