hes_just_not_that_into_youThe film ‘He’s Just Not That Into You’ is not like any romantic comedy you’ve seen. Intertwining stories of lovers and friends that appear in the movie are meant to represent all the cardinal points in the #1 New York Times best-selling how-to style book of the same name that appeared in 2004. The film accomplishes both getting across the message of the book and entertaining audiences. But there is still so much more information and fun to gain from the movie. That’s why I’ve compiled a list of what people can gain from this film.

10 Reasons Every Person Should See ‘He’s Just Not That Into You’

10. Bennifer. The story line between Jennifer Aniston and Ben Affleck is on fire. Even if Affleck’s character is quite perplexing and mysterious at the beginning of the movie, he makes up for it with the pants (I know this doesn’t make any sense to you now, but just more reason for you to go see it!)
9. Every person in college is aware of the technologies that plague our lives. In the film, Mary, played by Drew Barrymore, speaks out against the way gadgets and social networking services have warped the way dating should actually work. Thus, the film presents the message that hiding behind our Blackberries and Facebook accounts is probably not the best way to find ‘The One.’
8. Learning that gay signals are very different than straight signals. A look into the uncomplicated way gay men supposedly operate is enlightening, but may also make you jealous. Why can’t straight people be so straightforward?
7. By watching it, every guy will realize that Caller ID may have been the best device ever invented.
6. Scarlett Johansson. Isn’t it weird that Scarlett Johannsson always plays the role of the other woman? Even so, she is as equally banging in this film as any other. Girls, telling your man that Scarlett strips down in this movie may be enough to get him to the theater with you.
5. Bradley Cooper. After you saw ‘Wedding Crashers,’ this blondie might not have struck your fancy because his character was nothing short than every girl’s worst nightmare. But, when you see him and Affleck, you realize that both of these guys are pretty smoking, even if there names haven’t appeared as doodles on girl’s notebooks lately.
4. It actually presents realistic love stories. A man that doesn’t want to get married, but wants to live together. A woman who suspects her husband of cheating, but is prepared to let it slide. A woman who can’t decide to be the mistress of a married man or stay with a sweet, charming friend. Some have happy endings, some sad. Doesn’t get much more real than that.
3. Justin Long is the new Love Guru (sorry, Mike Myers). I know this is a bold statement, but Long’s character is the greatest thing to ever grace a romantic comedy.
2. It’s not a chick flick. It avoids the top clichés such as loves that transpire from bets, makeover montages and scenes where someone has to stop another person from getting on a plane because they just love them so much. If you like this stuff, though, you will still find enjoyment in the somewhat corny scenes in the movie.
1. If you’ve ever sat around waiting for a phone call or not been able to concentrate because you always want to check your voicemail or MySpace or e-mail or whatever, you will understand why you need to see this movie. Everyone who has ever dated will unite through this movie, and perhaps learn something too.
