If you are a single guy or gal living circa now, you know all too well that the dating scene – whether you are a city mouse or a country mouse – is not so cute. From the book by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo, “He’s Just Not That Into You” lets us dip in and out of the lives of a few twenty- and thirty-something kids and couples in (of all places) Baltimore. But really, it doesn’t matter where the story takes place; courtship in the modern day is less about slaying dragons and more about a really sweet text message. The cast is comprised of the most likable Gen X-ers and Gen Y-ers in Hollywood: Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Connelly, Bradley Cooper, Ginnifer Goodwin, Scarlett Johansson, Kevin Connolly and Justin Long. The stories are pretty much what you’d expect: a marriage on the rocks, the needy single girl and plenty of playas around every corner. The cast brings out just the right notes and the script’s keen observations about the dating world are spot-on.
