Posted on

Islaaffleckaniston_lHe’s Just Not That Into You opens tomorrow, with Confessions of a Shopaholic in hot pursuit next weekend. But which one are you most excited to see? Not sure yet? Let’s do a quick comparison:

Star Power
HJNTIY: Jennifer Aniston, Ben Affleck, Drew Barrymore, Scarlett Johansson…. Maybe it would be easier if we just list the people who aren’t in this movie. WINNER!
Shopaholic: Isla Fisher (a.k.a. Mrs. Borat), the nymphomaniac from Wedding Crashers.

Source Material
HJNTIY: Based on a best-selling self-help book that’s based on a line from some show you’ve probably never heard of (a.k.a. Sex and the City).
Shopaholic: Inspired by a whole series of best-selling books by Sophie Kinsella. TIE!

Trailer Moment
HJNTIY: Gigi (Ginnifer Goodwin) leaves a delightfully loopy phone message for a suitor (at 00:30).
Shopaholic: Rebecca (Isla Fisher) uses a hairdryer, a shoe, and frightening upper body strength to break an emergency-only credit card out of a block of ice (at 01:37). WINNER!

Looks like it’s too close for us to call right now. But are you just into He’s Just Not That Into You, or will you confess your love for Shopaholic?
