I tend to be one of those people who see a movie they want to watch but the boyfriend, or the best friend, or my sister; kind of sway me against it . They don't necessarily have to say that the movie sucks . it could be : "Oh, it's gonna make you cry " [and I already feel emotionally unstable enough at that time], or " I guess I'll watch it , if you want to " ,which always means "I don't want to watch it , I'd rather have my teeth pulled, but hey if you wanna watch it, then we will" Which in return I'm like : "Nah, it's ok. I'll watch it some other time "
Today THAT movie came on. The one I have been putting off seeing for YEARS because there has never been a moment when I am totally alone that this movie came on. Ok, I wasn't totally ALONE when it came on today. My fiance was there too , but he had to work this evening. "He's Just Not That Into You "Came on at 1 and he had to leave by 1: 30 . He left at 1:10 .

My thoughts when giving into those around me that didn't want to watch this wonderfully funny yet romantically realistic movie, was that "Hey, it's cable . They will replay this later tonight or in a couple weeks. " Not this movie. I have found it from the beginning and not watched it . The middle - which just irritates me, so I don't watch it . And the end, with no repeats in sight.
Today, however, I caught it just 3 mins in . I am sure that USA is thankful of this haha.
I saw the name of the movie first, because I always use the "Guide" feature on my tv . I can't stand just flipping channels .When I saw "He's Just Not That Into You"I was like "OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH", even though the fiance was sitting beside me, [ he made this "sigh" sound] because I knew he was going to work soon. Why shouldn't I watch something I want to? So, I turned the channel. And there was "Snow White"[Mary Margaret] from Once Upon A Time. I hit the info button to see the cast . "OH! That's Snow White!" I exclaimed. I knew Jennifer Aniston, Ben Affleck and Drew Barrymore [all whom I love] were in this movie , but still hadn't watched it. Why? Well, I love Jen in "Friends ", But still kinda pissed about her and Ben Affleck, because he and JLO looked great together. As for Drew - it pisses me off how in most of her movies they show her with no makeup at all, which just isn't a good look for her, as Cover Girl has proved.
I don't know if it's because of my new LOVE for Once Upon A Time, or because it's just Her , but I absolutely could not stop watching this movie. And it was GREAT . It hit every category of men and women. Just Friends, Just Lovers, Just Gay, and - Just not that Into You.-From a Man and a Woman's perspective.
Years ago when this came out , I really thought Drew and Jennifer were the stars . In actuality, it was Ginnifer and Justin . Every woman AND man can relate to this movie in some way.or another. It covers every aspect of a relationship. I am really glad I sat down and watched it.
