He's Just Not That Into You is just insultingly average in every way, spending 129 minutes telling us what we already know: girls and boys don't always click.

Your men folk will be bored out of their minds but you've dragged them to worse. It tries hard anyway. And since the whole thing is about advice on men let me give some; never take relationship advice from Candace Bushnell.

He's Just Not That Into You wishes it were Love, Actually crossed with The Break-Up, but it plays more like a horror movie for the WASP set.

Works as an hour episode of Oprah or a thirty-minute episode of Sex and the City, but as a full length movie -- I'm just not that into it.

A how-to happy ending training manual for aspiring female objects of desire, while movies about men have to do with the really big challenges they face, like beating up alien invaders or saving the planet. Doormat duty alert: She's Just Not That Onto You.

Despite some definite tendencies toward the formulaic, He's Just Not That Into You actually has half a brain in its head.

It's really a relationship comedy more than a romantic comedy, since a lot of the film is concerned with demonstrating when one should walk away, rather than when to lean in for the kiss and cleave.

People often do stupid things for love. That doesn't mean it's worth making a movie about these acts of folly.

He's Just Not That Into You is a standard chick flick, which isn't necessarily a bad thing: it's cute and comic and organized according to fixed, mostly ancient gender roles.

Clever one-liners and a screenplay that doesn't try too hard to be poignant or contrived make for an easy-going film that will lead to interesting post-movie discussion.

Audience Reviews for He's Just Not That Into You

Funny rom com about dating and falling in and out of love. The movie follows the lives of three female co-workers Gigi (who is desperate and can't get any guy), Janine (who married her college boyfriend, whose husband happens to have an affair) and Anna (who has been dating the same guy for 7 years and he doesn't want to get married). You think from the title of the movie that this is a man bashing movie but quite the opposite. The men turn out well in this movie (apart from Bradley Cooper who is married to Jennifer Connelly and has an affair with Scarlett Johansson. But who wouldn't pick Scarlett?!) Anyway, the women in the movie are de-ranged, paranoid, insecure and freaky. In comparison the men are quite normal and straightforward. Star studded cast. I was disappointed Drew Barrymore didn't have a bigger role as she is great in rom coms. Drew has the best lines though. Her scenes involving the voicemail and MySpace guy are hilarious. Scarlett looks amazing. Jennifer Connelly usually plays more serious roles but does well in this rom com. Jennifer Aniston is in her element in her stereotypical rom com role. She has a great frame but her face looks drawn and older. Kevin Connolly and Justin Long are nice guys in this movie. Ben Affleck's character is a gem. If you liked 'How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days' you will like this movie too. Everyone will be able to identify with at least one of the characters. There's a mixed bag. Bradley Cooper is bad but hot! Kevin Connolly's character is really sweet. He's my fave :) Ginnifer Goodwin has a great smile and lovely clothes.

As far as romantic comedies are concerned, I'm usually apprehensive about watching them. I think it's a case of clichéd, predictability that ruins kit for me. But with this film, I thought it was different take on the usual romantic comedy. The result is not a perfect film, but is definitely better than many other rom-coms out there who are predictable and rely on the standard formula that has plagued the genre. I thought that the film was pretty good for what it was, and that it was different than most rom-com, which was a great. The cast here are great and I very much enjoyed the performances. He's Just Not That Into You is flawed, but for the most part, it works well. The film is uneven at times, but there's a certain charm to this film, that's impossible to hate. I'm very picky when it comes to these types of films, but I enjoyed the film for its different approach to the genre. The film is funny and the cast is good, however there are parts that could have been better. But this is still a good little comedy that has plenty of heart. He's Just Not That Into You is one of the few rom-coms that succeeds at actually being good entertainment. While most films in the genre are painfully dull, this one has enough originality to keep you interested. A rom-com that is very different, this one is a must see for viewers tired of the same old formula. Give this one a shot, you may be surprised at how good it really is. He's Just Not That Into is a different type of, and a welcome new on the traditional rom-com formula.

Wow, Ginnifer Goodwin and Scarlett Johansson really did womankind a huuuuge favour by portraying women as unstable, nervous wrecks who spend their entire lives obsessing over signals from men as opposed to, oh, say, doing work or anything. I added half a star for the more mature relationship between Ben Affleck's reliable, charming (too-good-to-be-true) Neil and goodness knows Jennifer Aniston is always a welcome presence. I have never liked Bradley Cooper in any of his roles.

Somewhat painful, but the faux-documentary style was charming and the all-star cast did a lot to make the movie feel authentic. A few great lines in the movie, but too much space between them. I couldn't help thinking that this movie is a poor man's "Crazy Stupid Love" throughout its entirety ... which, from me, is actually high praise.

Best part was that I watched and reviewed it on Flixster. Might have gotten an extra 1/2 star because of that.
