cute movie
@Misabel13 @londonluver ~ they assessed it well so i'll just say - yah, mahn / you said it / i concur.
Absolutely love this movie! Its refreshing, great stories, its honest and bittersweet, romantic and very funny! Its a movie I will certainly watch again ;-)
I actually really liked this movie. I watched it late last night and thought it was well made. With an all-star cast, you almost can't go wrong. I'm in love with just about everything Ginnifer Goodwin does. She really becomes a lively, enjoyable person to watch. Drew Barrymore always brings a smile to my face. Scarlett Johansson is just drop dead gorgeous. And justin Long just had some hilarious lines. Everyone gets their happy endings, well almost everyone, and it's just all round a cute movie. :-)
We all know that if a gentleman caller is "into you" he will make a business deal with your father, and acquire some land or some fat goats in exchange for the burden of taking care of you. If he's not into you, he'll probably burn down your farm and steal the goats. Either way, he's getting some goats out of this.

Although He's Just not that into You felt somewhat contrived, (mainly because people were getting together without any sort of goat-related transactions. Are we just to assume that these transactions are being negotiated off screen?) the book that this movie was based on has a lot to offer in terms of tried and true relationship advice. I offer some of my favorite passages here:

"Men love it when you show you are committed. If he's not returning your calls, it's probably because you haven't called him enough times in a short enough span of time. Call him again, and if doesn't answer, immediately hang up and call again. If you manage to call him more than 60 times in one hour, he'll be very impressed, because that's more than one call per minute!"

"Pretend that you are pregnant. This will bring you closer together, and give you something to talk about during those painfully silent breakfasts. When he realizes you aren't really pregnant, just stuff a pillow under your shirt, and say 'Yes I am; just look how fat I am with this baby!' If done correctly, you can keep this going for at least a couple of years."

"Men: Women love spontaneity. Tell her to dress up real nice because you're taking her out to the fanciest place in town. On the way there, say you changed your mind, and you have a better place to go to. Go to a McDonalds, and take off your fancy clothes in the car (make sure you wear a set of normal clothes underneath). She'll be the fanciest person at McDonalds! While you're eating your Big Macs, make sure to tell her how nice she looks. Women love to be complimented on how nice they look."

"For guys or gals: Slowly (and subtly) chip away at your Significant Other's self esteem. A good way of doing this is by sending him/her anonymous letters in the mail that say mean things about the way they look, and/or their hygiene. The best part about being close to them is that you can figure out what they're most sensitive about, and really focus in on that in the letter. Make sure you don't put a return address, or sign it, or else they might figure out it's you. Also, practice acting surprised when they get the letter to divert suspicion. Say something like 'They do have a point,' about the letter (always make sure you pretend to read the letter first before you comment about it).

The less confident they feel about themselves, the more they will feel like you are their only option."

"Finally, proper goat management is the key to any successful relationship. The fatter the goats, the better. If you don't have goats to trade, you've got a relationship headed nowhere."

That last part about the goats wasn't really in the book, but I added it because it needed to be said.

3 out of 5 stars.

With Valentine's Day only a week away, along comes He's Just Not That Into You, an Altmanesque romantic comedy-drama centered on several couples, their friends, acquaintances, and (possible) lovers. Directed by Ken Kwapis (The Office, License to Wed, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants) and adapted by Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein from Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo's Sex and the City-inspired self-help book, He's Just Not That Into You dramatizes the "insights" (if you want to call it that) that made Behrendt and Tuccillo's book a runaway success with the dating challenged. He's Just Not That Into You is, whatever its faults (and it has many), a "perfect" date movie for all but the most cynical couples and, of course, out-of-relationship individuals (a.k.a. singles).

He's Just Not That Into You follows romance- and relationship-starved Gigi (Ginnifer Goodwin), as she embarks on her first date with Conor (Kevin Connolly), a successful, self-centered real estate agent. Conor, however, is still hung up on Anna (Scarlett Johansson), a blonde yoga instructor and sometime singer. He wants commitment, she doesn't. At a supermarket, Anna flirts with Ben (Bradley Cooper). Ben is married to, Janine (Jennifer Connelly). Janine works at a spice company (where work takes a distant second to romance talk) with both Gigi and a close friend, Beth (Jennifer Aniston). Beth and her longtime, live-in boyfriend, Neil (Ben Affleck), are at a crossroads: she wants a ring as a symbol of their lifetime commitment and he's opposed to marriage in principle.

Hoping to "casually" run into Conor at one of his favorite haunts, Gigi instead strikes up a conversation with Conor's friend, Alex (Justin Long), a cynical bar/restaurant owner and womanizer who, out of boredom, sympathy, or other motivation, decides to share his rarefied insights on the male psyche with Gigi. Mary (Drew Barrymore), a sales agent for a gay weekly, the Baltimore Blade, appears in the margins as Anna's best friend, sounding board, and comic relief featuring gay, swishy men (obligatory for modern-day romantic comedies, apparently), MySpace or tech jokes, and as the stand-by romantic interest for a character who suffers the ignominy of being jilted in one of the last scenes. One relationship ends on a realistically sour note, which at least helps to balance out the other unrealistically feel-good couplings.

From there, He's Just Not That Into You follows a predictably meandering path toward romantic consummation, reconciliation, or separation for each mini-storyline. Alone, the individual storylines never stray from the romantic comedy-drama clich
This movie was cute with some great actors/actresses. Did not think it was nearly as good as the book, nor as entertaining, but it's a fine weeknight movie to see with your girlfriends. Check out more thoughts at
Another piece of crap movie for Jennifer Aniston, which is to be expected. I thought that since this was an ensamble movie, that it would do well, since the only time that Aniston does well as an actor is when she has an ensamble cast. Unfortunately, that is not the case. Jennifer Connelly was very good. Not enough of Drew Barrymore.
This movie was a HUGE waste of time! Ugh!
Wait for it to come on free on tv.
I really liked this one, It wasnt a normal chick flick where the girl gets the guy and everything works out perfectly for everyone. The people are real and in relationships people act stupid and every once in a while it works out

Go see it if your a girl, if your a guy, you might want to stay home
