He's Just Not That Into You

"If a guy treats you like he doesn't give a sh*t, it's because he doesn't give a sh*t."

I HATE romantic comedies. But i LOVED the book "He's Just Not That Into You." It's more of a self-help book where the authors responds to different people's relationship crises. But the movie has of course more of a plot, with the "all star" cast including Jennifer Aniston and Drew Barrymore. I liked the movie. I thought it was entertaining and it addressed all the normal relationships troubles people face each day. Ginnifer Goodwin was hilarious as the hopeless romantic who puts her heart on the line each and every time in the name of love, only to get it squashed. But she keeps trying until the right one comes along.
There's about seven different plot lines but it's very entertaining how they address relationship woes. I liked it...that is until the ending. That's when I remembered why I don't like romantic comedies. The unreal ism kicks it, and it was like an ulcer attacked my stomach. The last 15 minutes, the movie went to the unreal, the plots just fit together a little too neatly. Two of the plot lines I thought were very realistic, but the other like 3 or 4 I didn't care for. They just worked out too conveniently. Call me a cynic, but I just think that's crazy. I guess I'll stick to my suspense and drama movies. They make me feel better about myself.

My rating: B-

I felt that this was $8.50 I could have spent elsewhere.
