on opening night, at the AMC theater in Highlands Ranch, CO. The Rotten Tomatoes website at He’s Just Not That Into You
describes the movie as follows:
“Based on the wildly popular bestseller from Sex and the City scribes Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo, He’s Just Not That Into You tells the stories of a group of interconnected, Baltimore-based…
Gigi just wants a man who says he’ll call–and does–while Alex advises her to stop sitting by the phone. Beth wonders if she should call it off after years of committed singlehood with her boyfriend, Neil, but he doesn’t think there’s a single thing wrong with their unmarried life. Janine’s not sure if she can trust her husband, Ben, who can’t quite trust himself around Anna. Anna can’t decide between the sexy married guy, or her straightforward, no-sparks standby, Conor, who can’t get over the fact that he can’t have her. And Mary, who’s found an entire network of loving, supportive men, just needs to find one who’s straight…”
He’s Just Not That Into You is more like an episode of the old sitcom Friends than a blockbuster, “gotta see it” movie. It’s a definite “girls night out” film with major female star power, including Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore, Scarlett Johansson and Jennifer Connelly, plus Ben Affleck is in the movie too. This is the big attraction to this film, much more than the story itself.
I guess it’s based on a book that came from a line in Sex In The City where one of the girls was waiting for a guy to call her back and some other girl said, “Maybe, he’s just not that into you?”. I apologize to fans of that show if I didn’t get it exactly right, but that’s what I heard.
This isn’t a bad movie, but it’s not a great movie either. However, it’s killing it at the box office with over $22 million in sales. It was cute and there are quite a few differences between the characters that keeps your interest and of course, they all know each other in a sixth degree of separation sort of way. It’s certainly not on my top ten list by any stretch and I wouldn’t ever take the time to watch it again. For that reason, I’m giving it a rating of wait for the Rental and Becky would agree.
