Sometimes I get to write about some really cool films like The Dark Knight, or a small little indie film which I’ve fallen in love with like American Teen, and then every once in a while I have to write about a romantic comedy. And it’s not that I hate romantic comedies, because I’m not that type of guy. I just find it hard to write about them without making some kind of snide remark or negative statement about the type of people who are excited to see these type of movies. This sometimes leads to a statement which could potentially be labled sexist, and eventually leads to the few female readers we have calling me out in the comments. So I’m going to try to stick to the facts on this one.
So what can I say about the movie trailer for He’s Just Not That Into You? Well, the film has a wonderful cast: Jennifer Connelly, Drew Barrymore, Scarlett Johansson, Justin Long, Ben Affleck, Kevin Connolly (Entourage) (notice how I excluded Jennifer Aniston even though she’s clearly one of the leads? That was on purpose. I don’t like her very much. She is the opposite of wonderful). What else? The film was directed by Ken Kwapis, the guy responsible for The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, License to Wed, and Dunston Checks In. And the writers of the book that the film is based on were consultant and story editors on Sex and the City, which might give you a good idea what to expect. That said, enjoy the trailer below (or you could always watch that kick ass Russian Wanted trailer again… yeah, that sounds like a good idea, doesn’t it?).
