Educational chick flick - Lorraine

Viewer Rating:Lorraine has rated He's Just Not That Into You rating: 3 Star

He's Just Not That Into You is based on the self-help book of the same name by Greg Behrendt, which in turn is based on an episode of Sex and the City. So basically, it's got the credentials to be the ultimate chick flick. It follows several different characters as they fall in and out love and relationships- unhappily married couple Ben (Bradley) and Janine (Jennifer Connelly), unhappily unmarried couple Neil (Ben Affleck) and Beth (Jennifer Anitson), and singletons Mary (Drew Barrymore) and Gigi (Ginnifer Goodwin). Scarlett Johansson also stars as free-spirited Anna who makes Ben and Janine's lives more complicated. With such a star-studded cast it's remarkable that a relative unknown, Ginnifer Goodwin (Walk the Line), positively lights up the screen and steals every scene in which she appears. She's the Bridget Jones of the film and there are some truly cringe-worthy scenes involving her desperate attempts at dating. He's Just Not That Into You is a fun film that will have female viewers nodding along with its declarations on male-female relationships. Male viewers may find it a little more trying to watch but they may just learn a thing or two from it.
