Lucy and I indulged ourselves into the whole “He’s Just Not That Into You” (the movie) craze. And yes, we have become victims ourselves. Hardcore victims (at least for Jemma). I cannot stop thinking about how incredibly annoying Gigi was with her obsession over chasing guys for phone calls, or about how amazingly sexy Ben (Bradley Cooper) was, or how charismatic Jennifer Aniston was as a character in the story and as herself in general, OR how sweet Alex was to Gigi in the end (all that the leading man realizes his true love is the leading lady kinda thing). It’s been 3 days already and I’m still having the He’s Just Not That Into You hangover.
So, in order to continue to dwell myself into movie for as long as possible, I’ve come to search up PP’s favorite quotes from the movie. It’s totally awesome.
Mary: I had this guy leave me a voicemail at work, so I called him at home, and then he emailed me to my BlackBerry, and so I texted to his cell, and now you just have to go around checking all these different portals just to get rejected by seven different technologies. It’s exhausting.
Anna: You have an ass that makes me wanna dry hump!
Ben: Did you just say ‘Dry hump’?
Ben: I think I just fell in love.
Alex: I really gotta go to bed.
Gigi: Is that an invitation?
Gigi: Oh god, That was cheesy.
Mary: He MySpaced me.
Joshua: Oh girl I don’t know about that… My trampy little sister says MySpace is the new booty call.
(BTW: PP LOVES JOSHUA – Leonardo Nam, we’ve seen him in other movies before, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants for example, and he is absolutely someone to look out for!)
And this, I find as the most inspirational….
Gigi: Girls are taught a lot of stuff growing up: if a guy punches you he likes you, never try to trim your own bangs, and someday you will meet a wonderful guy and get your very own happy ending. Every movie we see, every story we’re told implores us to wait for it, the third act twist, the unexpected declaration of love, the exception to the rule. But sometimes we’re so focused on finding our happy ending we don’t learn how to read the signs. How to tell from the ones who want us and the ones who don’t, the ones who will stay and the ones who will leave. And maybe a happy ending doesn’t include a guy, maybe it’s you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself up for something better in the future. Maybe the happy ending is just moving on. Or maybe the happy ending is this, knowing after all the unreturned phone calls, broken-hearts, through the blunders and misread signals, through all the pain and embarrassment you never gave up hope.
This is just plain out awesome dude..
African Woman #1: I’m sure he just forgot your hut number!
African Woman #2: Or was eaten by a lion.
African Woman #3: You guys are awesome!
This movie is totally 110% PP approved and 300% PP recommended.
Lucy said it’s even comparable to Sex and The City (and Lucy is a huge huge GIGANTIC SATC fan, so for her saying that basically means if you don’t watch this movie your kinda pathetic.) Happy watching!
– love jemma
