…to see He’s Just Not That Into You.
It’s cute, smart, current, un-cliché (well, as much as a romantic comedy can be—I mean…no one gets shot dead) and captures nearly every angle of dating and love. And it fully supports how I want every single person to see dating: full of surprise and hope. Optimism is essential. Love is not logical; it doesn’t progress smoothly on paper the way it always should. And the movie, as it weaves in and out of character’s lives, feels just as wonderfully uncertain. As one story crosses another, sometimes the characters support each other, sometimes they’re stepping on toes, and yet all of them want the same thing we all want in the end: a love that takes away the mixed messages. A love that makes sense. A love that makes the crazy, confusing ride worth it!
I laughed, I laughed again, I almost cried, then I laughed, then I actually did cry, then I laughed some more and said “Awww” a few times. Basially, I wanted to hug this movie when it was over. I suppose I could wait and hug the DVD, but that wouldn’t feel the same.
I recommend He’s Just Not That Into You for whatever stage of love you’re in. And I’m sure single women will be flocking to this anyway. But in case you’re on the fence, do yourself a favor and go. If you’re single and wondering if all the search and the hope is worth it anymore. It is. And this movie will remind why. You may not know where life and love will take you, but if you want to enjoy the ride, you have to let go of the safety bar and let go…
