Ten Chick Flick cliches that are NOT in ‘He’s just not that into you
This should be under the same umbrella as all those funny Honest Trailers. But it isn’t a spoof of itself, just that of other romcoms, so maybe no. But there is some cheesy honesty to both this video and the actual film.
I watched He’s just Not that Into you a few years ago and probably every year after that – and also very recently this year during one of my strange romantic comedy addiction phases. One might ask why I would repeatedly let myself watch a movie with Ben Affleck and the answer is, he’s not as flat as he usually is and also I really don’t care – but mainly because I like how the book was adapted in such an arb way.
It’s one of those films you just watch purely to observe humans in an atypical romcom setting. Did I learn anything from the movie? Maybe. Did I cry at the end? No. Does Scarlett Johannson’s character make me feel like it’s ok to be a Slutty McSluttinheim? I don’t have the answer to that just yet. And lastly, the question I always ask myself when something affects me in any way, did I relate to any of the characters? Yes, deffos yes. Ginnifer Goodwin’s character is obvi someone anybody who falls for inappropriate people and gets kinda stalkerish can relate to. And there’s nothing wrong with enjoying a mindless film that doesn’t leave all your emotions raw when it’s done (Yes, I’m looking at you Blue Valentine).
So there, I suggest you watch this movie and stop being so serious or maybe watch this movie and take your romcom loving self a little more seriously. Just watch it! But don’t just take it from me, let Bradley Cooper, Kevin Connolly and Justin Long convince you. Watch this video and thank me later 🙂
