In the late 2000s and early 2010s, ensemble romantic comedies became a popular placeholder for the dwindling power of the romantic comedy. If you can’t rely on moviegoers to go see a movie with two beautiful movie stars, why not stuff quadruple the number of romantic movie stars into one rom-com? It was a solid strategy and resulted in movies like New Year’s Eve, Valentine’s Day (which also comes to Netflix this month) and He’s Just Not That Into You.

Based on the 2004 self-help book of the same name by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo, He’s Just Not That Into You takes place in Baltimore and follows friends, lovers and everything in between as they attempt to figure out the trick to modern dating and relationships. Well, modern as in 2009, which pre-dated the emergence of dating apps. There’s Beth (Jennifer Aniston) and Neil’s (Ben Affleck) disagreement on commitment, Gigi’s (Ginnifer Goodwin) habit of waiting by the phone and Mary’s (Drew Barrymore) struggle to find the right guy.

He’s Just Not That Into You comes from director Ken Kwapis, who also directed such movies as The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, License to Wed, Big Miracle and A Walk in the Woods. Upon release ahead of Valentine’s Day, the film received mixed to negative reviews from critics and holds a 41% on Rotten Tomatoes. As a date movie released on the ultimate romantic holiday, the movie topped the box office in its opening weekend and went on to gross over $178 million worldwide. Find out why he’s just not that into you when the movie arrives on the first of March.
