"He's Just Not That Into You" is from a book by the same name, written by Greg Behrendt. The basic point of view of the book is to educate women on the fact that men are most of the time dishonest, and take advantage of them or break their hearts. The movie "He's Just Not That Into You" has a clear concept: if a guy wants to call you, he will. If he likes you, he will make the effort. And if he doesn't, that means he's not interested. The cast is full with famous actresses (Jennifer Connelly, Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore and Scarlett Johansson) wich all has a particular and a very different role on the movie, not less important one from the other. We can also say that all the stories are coneccted, and they show you all the different points of view of what it takes when you have (or not) a relationship. What i could rescue from the movie were a few concepts about love: You can be married and being cheating, or not trusting the one you think that loves you. You can be single and being desperate. You can have whatever you want on a relation, there are no rules, there are no exceptions, and there are no signs. We dont need to push things to happen. It`s a very interesting movie, i think it will open your mind to think a lot about how are we as women, and the atitudes that we have on this kind of situations. It's a very honest film about real relationships, because we see a lot of this on our lifes, or on the other ones too.
