He's Just Not That Into You

Based on the book by Greg Behrendt, this movie is definitely aimed at the female market, even though it contains the seductively gorgeous yet stereotyped blonde goddess, Scarlet Johansson. The movie is directed by directed by Ken Kwapis, written by Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein and stars, a group of 20-something and 30-something women looking for love or attempting to solve the mysteries of relationships.

The main character in the movie is Gigi (Ginnifer Goodwin) who is desperate to find a man, however is always left out in the cold, until she meets bar owner (Justin Long) who lets her in on the secrets of what men think who becomes somewhat of a mentor to her.

Although this is the main story, all other stories in this film are linked to Gigi which becomes quite a complex mess at the end of the day, with one character looking for love on the internet, another finding out that her husband has cheated on her and Jennifer Aniston's character becomes quite upset that her boyfriend of 7-years refuses to marry her. At times, He’s Just Not That Into You is a depressing, witty and comical film, however it’s also a blight on the male sex as men are all bastards… or so it seems.

There are some strong performances in the movie by all involved, more specifically Jennifer Connelly as Janine who discovers that her "cheating" husband is smoking after promising that he has given up. To compound the situation, her husband Ben (Bradley Cooper) tells her of his infidelity and has been sleeping with Anna, Scarlett Johansson who is unfortunately stereotyped and not very well used in this movie.

It seems that the director attempted to add too many big name actors into the film such as Jennifer Aniston who wants to get married, however her boyfriend played by Ben Affleck wonders why, because they are both happy and he believes that marriage is not needed to profess his love. With a plethora of stereotypes, especially some really bad use of “gay” men, the film is quite predictable in most parts which is a shame because boy, did this movie have one stellar cast.

Interesting to say the least.
