The words “he’s just not that into you” originally started out as a line in episode 78 of the 6th season of Sex & the City. Carrie’s boyfriend, Jack Berger, listens to Miranda unravel the events of a date she’s just been on and when asked his opinion, he simply hands her the infamous line. The honesty instantly frees her from her dating chains.
The minds behind that episode, Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo, then went on to make it into a book. Then as soon as Oprah got her hands on a copy, a show titled “The Cold, Hard Dating Truth”
Well, it’s been about 4 years since then, but coming to theaters February 6 is an all-star cast picking up where the book left off, deciphering the codes and meandering through the maze that is the dating world.
Starring Jennifer Aniston, Ben Affleck, Jennifer Connelly, Drew Barrymore and Scarlett Johansson, the romantic comedy is sure to be a Valentine’s Day box office winner. And I’m also sure that around the release date the talk show circuit will be aflutter with relationship talk and analysis of gender behaviour. It’s an age-old topic of conversation that will exist as long as men and women do.
Do you plan on seeing the movie? What do you think of Greg’s advice and outlook on dating?
