Books on the Big Screen: He’s Just Not That Into You

hesjustWhat will they think of next? Of course they make movies from comic books, and from great classics like Pride and Prejudice or Romeo and Juliet – but now apparently the movie biz is tapping into self help books too. Of course I’m talking about the new Warner Brothers release of He’s Just Not That Into You coming out this weekend with a pretty impressive cast including Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Connelly, Kevin Connolly, Bradley Cooper, Ginnifer Goodwin, Scarlett Johansson and Justin Long.

The book by former “Sex and the City” writers Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo was a runaway hit for good reason. Who doesn’t have a friend that you just want to smack upside the head for staying with the wrong guy? Who isn’t themselves in need of some good old fashioned head smacking that only a non-interested third party like this book can give you? While I certainly don’t think this is one you have to read before you see the movie, (note the lack of plot, character and surprise ending in the book), I do think you might want to have a copy on hand if you happen to be, well…female. I’m not saying you necessarily need the advice.  Maybe it’s your sister or your best friend.  You could just casually slip it into her backpack or leave it on her coffee table. I’m just saying…

I’ll definitely be checking out the movie (what can I say – I’m a sucker for the chick flicks).  Will you?  Let me know what you think of it!

  1. Millions of men will be forced to go see this movie with their girlfriends/wives. Ladies,if a guy is willing to see this movie with you he is “into you.” Or maybe he just wants to see Scarlett Johansson. Personally I would only go see the movie if I was going with Scarlett.
