So, the movie He’s Just Not That Into You comes out February 6th in the U.S. Having read excerpts of the book and knowing the general premise (namely that a man who likes a woman goes after her, therefore if he doesn’t go after her, he isn’t interested in her), I’m predisposed to like it already.
Potential pros of this movie:
good plot premise
seriously, Ben Affleck is in this movie? Where the crap has he been the last five years?
Potential cons of this movie:
Drew Barrymore is a terrible actress
She also is awkward
She’s also not very bright-seeming
Also Drew Barrymore.
This video definitely increased the probability that I will drop ten bucks to go see HJNTIY. It’s about six minutes long, and it’s called “10 Chick-Flick Cliches You Won’t Find in He’s Just Not That Into You.“* It stars three of the male leads, who act out the ten chick-flick cliches, complete with soaring violins and green-screen backgrounds. Classic!
*Caution: N particularly SFW as it contains one bleeped but still recognizable off-color remark.
