Starring: Ginnifer Goodwin, Justin Long, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Aniston
The problem with films like this stem from the fact that there are so many of them; cinema is (well, should be) innovative and yet another rom-com is going to do nothing to dispel the fact that there a Golden Age is long behind us. Every now and then, something will come along to disprove this. Make no mistake: He’s Just Not That Into You is not one of those films. But it isn’t that bad either. Ginnifer Goodwin is Gigi, an unlucky-in-love individual who has no idea what she is doing wrong when it comes to the opposite sex. It is through this confusion that we are introduced to various other examples of ‘him not liking her’, each character connected through another. Suffice to say, these include Ben Affleck who believes he does not need to marry Jennifer Aniston to prove his love for her, and Justin Long – a highlight as Alex, a part-time relationship expert who befriends Gigi. Just go along with it and you will be entertained.
