He's Just Not That Into You

In Saturday night's entry, I talked about going to see He's Just Not That Into You. However, as one reader pointed out, I didn't give my opinion of the movie. Overall, I liked it, but the more I think about it, maybe I didn't.

I spent the first I don't know how long of the movie trying to keep up with how all the characters were connected. They were a little 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon-ish.

What woman hasn't had one of those "he's not into you" moments? I know guys that do things that would make you think he was into you, but he's really not into you. It really drives me nuts. Should we say, "hey, you're being a real jerk because that could be considered flirting"? Sort of like Alex and Gigi before he finally figured out he did like her.

I really felt for the Gigi character. She just wanted a guy to pay her some attention and be interested in her. I've probably been as obsessed as her before, but just not as obvious to the general public. Did anyone else notice her purple obsession? I thought, "oh good grief, I hope I'm not that bad."

It was an absolute shame that the most attractive guy in the movie was such a... well, I don't even know what to call him other than the "hot jerk". You thought he was going to be a nice guy in the beginning, then boom! CHEATER! Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong. And for him to tell his wife in middle of Home Depot.

Oh, his blond singer... why would a woman go after him after he says, "sorry, I'm married." Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong.

By the way, speaking of wrong, I wish the hot jerk's wife had gone to get her eyebrows waxed. That drove me crazy. The funniest moment in the movie for me was when threw the mirror on the floor. Some guy in our theater yells, "that's seven years!" and everyone in the theater laughed at him.

Let me tell you what, in my opinion, was the biggest problem with the movie. There was not enough Ben Affleck. Love me some Ben, and there just wasn't enough of him.

So, Kristi... is that better? :)

And to Mimi and Christi who commented on the different look... is this better than the last one or do I need to just go back to the purple and brown?

Thanks Audra! I agree with the "hot jerk" and the woman who pursued him even AFTER he said he was married - though the "You just might be the bestfriend I ever had comment" in the pool was kind of funny. . .
