He’s Just Not That Into You ( M): An overex­tended, over­pop­u­lated ro­man­tic com­edy that at­tempts to shed light on the dif­fi­cul­ties of dat­ing in the era of the Black­Berry and MyS­pace. But, de­spite a stel­lar cast, which in­cludes Jen­nifer Anis­ton, Scar­lett Jo­hans­son, Ben Af­fleck and Drew Bar­ry­more, there are few new in­sights into the bat­tle of the sexes, 21st-cen­tury style. — David Stratton

Free-flow­ing drama: Rachel Get­ting Mar­ried

( M): It’s Rachel who is get­ting mar­ried, but it’s her un­happy sis­ter Kym ( Anne Hath­away) who dom­i­nates this com­pelling fam­ily drama, turn­ing up un­ex­pect­edly for the best-planned of so­ci­ety wed­dings to un­bur­den her guilt-rid­den soul. Jonathan Demme di­rects in a free-flow­ing, home­m­o­vie style, and Hath­away de­liv­ers an­guish and brave good hu­mour in roughly equal mea­sure. — Evan Wil­liams
