While this movie is light and doesn’t hit any of the more dramatic storylines that hard, He’s Just Not That into You is a fun romantic comedy with a great cast that you’ll want to watch over and over.

Gigi (Ginnifer Goodwin) is a hopeless romantic who keeps reading signs wrong. She confides in her coworkers Beth (Jennifer Aniston) and Janine (Jennifer Connelly), whom both have their own love issues, and finds solace in a bartender named Alex (Justin Long).

While the cast list is extensive, the lesser known Goodwin really stands out on her own and will make you laugh and roll your eyes as she makes interesting decisions. Connelly is also memorable as a wife who’s been scorned.

Like When Harry Met Sally…, the film is interspersed with fun interviews about love.

Final say: I’m into this. ★★★★☆
