He's Just Not That Into You

After I got the toddler to bed and cleaned up the other night, I flopped down in front of the air conditioner and queued up the list of new "On-Demand" movies. Despite the appeal of several spy movies, throwing people out of plane movies, etc., I finally settled on "He's Just not That Into You," which came out sometime last year.

I was expecting something silly and light, and got that - but also, wow - they really got a lot of things just right.

You know that friend who keeps reading things into her dates that weren't actually there, obsessing over whether a guy's going to call her back? She's in there. In all her painfully awkward eagerness.

And so's that married couple that acts like everything's fine and they want to keep it together, when really they're both wondering if it's worth it.

And more, but I won't ruin it for you if you haven't seen it.

Let's just say, if you're not worried about the shidduch crisis, this is probably a fun movie for you.

And if you are worried about the shidduch crisis, maybe watching this will give you some ideas of how NOT to try to solve it.
