Quick Movie Review ~ He's Just Not That Into You




My sister invited me to go to the movies last night.
Since I usually just collect dust on my fat tush on a Friday night I jumped at the chance to go. Plus I would be able to watch a "chic" flick without the moaning of the male members of my home.


So we went to see "He's Just Not That Into You".

My review: 1 1/2 thumbs up.

Why?

Hmm, well there are a lot of characters at first but you do catch on quickly & they are easy to follow. The movies starts are a bit slow, almost painful.
It picks up but there is no real defining moment of this movie.
As my sister said "Predictable"
I did like the storyline of Gigi & the character that Justin Long plays.
His character is representing the author of the original book.


Scarlet Johannson's character was cute but I didn't agree with her choices & felt she was leading Kevin Connelly's character around.

Drew Barrymore's character, Mary, wasn't featured as much as I would have liked but I am a big DB fan.

Would I recommend this movie?
Sure, why not.
Definitely chic flick material but on track with why men & women do what they do in relationships.
If you can see it on a bargain matinee, even better.


So that's my exciting Friday night, what did you do?


Woops out!

I was worried that this really wasn't going to translate well to a movie - I'll still go see it, but I'm glad to see that my original suspicions are valid.

We waited a whol hour and a half to eat sub-par BBQ at a new BBQ chain joint that came to the area! Whoo hoo - that was fun with a 3 month old!
