Hes Just Not That Into You
Based on the best-selling book by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo.
The Baltimore-set movie of interconnecting story arcs deals with the challenges of reading or misreading human behavior. Jennifer Connelly plays a woman stuck in a tired marriage with Cooper’s character. Kevin Connolly, meanwhile, is a man pining after a woman, still not cast, who is having an affair with Cooper.
Goodwin is a young woman obsessed with Kevin Connolly’s character who tries to set up accidental meetings with him only to run across his friend, played by Long, who takes her on as a “My Fair Lady” experiment.
Barrymore plays a woman perpetually confused by dating, now more than ever in a culture that is more obsessed with technology than actual human contact.
Although this is considered a “chick flick” there are lessons for all age groups. But a family-friendly film it is not. It deals with relationships and the differences between the sexes and how they deal with these differences. This story shows a wide range of emotions and how they relate to dating and marriage. People in the dating world can relate to many of the scenarios that are shown. Those who are married may question their feelings.The movie is a comedy at times and there are other times when people will relate so well to the story that it may bring them to tears. No matter how you look at this movie we cannot award it our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal.
