Oh No! He’s Just Not Into Me

hesjustnotthatintoyouI couldn’t write for a while because I was in Istanbul, though I didn’t do anything special, I just didn’t have my computer with me. Anyways. I finished Two for the Money by Janet Evanovich, which was again very funny. Other than that, I watched the movie He’s Just Not That Into You. I had purchased the book years ago, because so many people had recommended it, including Teri Hatcher, who said that it helped her get over George Clooney or something. That must have been a challenge.

The whole movie is about this loser of a girl who keeps waiting for the phone to ring, and at one point u want to shake her up and say: just forget about him! All the actors in it are famous, and if not exactly famous, you go, “how do I know that guy??”. There are all kinds of situations, including adultery, first dates, false alarms, internet dating, non-marrying guys etc. It’s impossible not to find something of yourself in it. The whole movie is based on the idea that everybody thinks that they are the exception to the rule. For example, you know how guys on myspace (I can’t believe it still exists by the way) are no good? But there’s this girl who knows my friend’s friend, who met her boyfriend on myspace, and now they are married and very happy. And we all think we’ll be the next exception. But that’s not the case. Exceptions are rare, and that’s probably not going to happen to you. Or can it? That’s the whole point. Also the main guy in the story, Alex, keeps saying that if a guy wants to date you, he’ll make it happen, so it’s no use overthinking his actions and twisting his words etc. He’s actually got very good points. 

It’s really good that people in it are over-famous, because it might have gotten a tad boring if they weren’t. Oh, and the blond guy, he’s E from Entourage.
