Critics, for the most part, are just not into He's Just Not That Into You, starring Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Connelly, Scarlett Johansson and Drew Barrymore as women whose objects of affection are, well, just not that into them. Roger Ebert in the Chicago Sun-Times concludes his review with something of a spoiler, saying that the movie "ends on an unsatisfactory note. Stop reading now because I am going to complain that most of its stories have happy endings. Not in the real world, they don't. In the real world, the happy endings come only with a guy who's really into you." Lou Lumenick in the New York Post is one of several critics who compare the movie with Sex And The City, saying that it's basically a PG version of the TV series/movie feature, "minus the designer shoes and the laughs." Ann Hornaday in the Washington Post writes that "it's like Sex and the City without the shoes or Mamma Mia! without the Abba." In the New York Times, Manohla Dargis notes that the book on which the movie is based actually derives from an episode of Sex and the City , saying that the scriptwriters take "this bit from a 30-minute show and [turn] it into an overextended 2 hours and 12 minutes." Similarly, Elizabeth Weitzman in the New York Daily News comments that the TV show "mined this material more successfully in just thirty minutes." On the other hand, Claudia Puig in USA Today finds the movie pleasant enough, saying that it "succeeds more with clever one-liners than in its uneven scenarios. But it's light and entertaining, and its heart _ visible amid the cynicism _ is in the right place." And Mick LaSalle in the San Francisco Chronicle concludes that despite its numerable faults, it amounts to "a thoughtful movie about love, and that rarely happens anymore. Let's take it and like it."
