Premiere
Ginnifer Goodwin gives a standout performance--and that's saying a lot considering the large cast--as the insecure, neurotic female looking for love.
75
Never soars, but it never flags. It remains brisk, engaging and pleasant throughout, and face it: If a movie this well made had Spanish or French subtitles, we'd all be talking about it as a searing examination of sexual politics.
63
The movie has a few too many story threads, but it also has some very funny lines and offers sharp-eyed commentary on the state of relationships in the era of instant messages and MySpace.
63
Good comfort food for most of its running time, thanks to a cast of attractive, unchallenging pros and Ken Kwapis's smooth direction.
63
The result is Woody Allen lite, with some deft observations about how the social media designed to bring singles together are actually coming between them.
63
While "Love, Actually" succeeded in providing well-developed characters in (mostly) interesting situations, He's Just Not That Into You is often flat with subplots that feel rushed and/or contrived.
58
He's Just Not That Into You turns romantic sanity into something so sanitized that it starts to make delusion look good.

The Hollywood Reporter
All of this results in way too much relationship chatter and not nearly enough comedy, romance or even dysfunctional relationships. We want to laugh -- but at what?
40
The possibilities of the dating game are endless and the potential for pain is great, yet the permutations of the movie's plot are predictable and repetitive.
40
Yes, that's an impressive collection of actors. And yes, it's deflating to watch them wandering in and out of half-written scenes with no discernable direction.
38
Here's a true S&M date movie. Only sadistic men and masochistic women could love it.
