He's Just Not That Into You

The Takeaway: If you're going to cheat on your wife - definitely go with Scarlett Johansson. Didn't work out too well for this dude - but that's mainly cause he's a douche - in every movie he's ever been in. You certainly have a better shot. How's that for a motivational chocolate bar?

Format: Bluray

Who'd a thunk to make a romantic comedy that was neither funny nor romantic? The producers of this mindnumbingly booooooorrrrrrrrrrriiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnnnngggggggg, drawn out, fucking mess, that's who - and they should be targeted for the next car bomb! Too soon? Ah shit - that's what this film did to me.

Seriously - how did THIS cast - yes this incredible cast of likable, talented actors (outside of the douche nugget previously referenced) ever accept this stank-pile of a script. I hope they just wanted to buy another car that I can never afford, go on another vacation to a place I can only dare dream of, or purchase yet another gigundo house high in the hills - that would at the very least explain why they took time out of the schedules to film this. I'm totally down with selling out to send your kids to college or go on an all night drunken binge and need some hard earned cash to bribe the jury. But if there's any other reason these guys and gals signed on - well - I may just lose faith in Hollywood. Oh - wait. Never mind.

Incidentally - I LOVE rom-coms. Even this sub-genre of "too many actors in one flick, with too many plot lines, all in an effort to hedge the producer's bets" as noted by the well crafted, actually funny, actually romantic, Love, Actually.

Try and enjoy, kiddies... it's gonna be a rough night. NYC Cab Driver.

  2. Really? See that's the problem I had with it - I didn't find any of it fun and thought with the premise - it should have been. Well - I'm glad you enjoyed it, man.

    Cheers,
