Buy it... only if you seek brief flashes of the pleasant dramatic style that Cliff Eidelman wrote with more frequency a decade prior.

Avoid it... if you expect this score, Eidelman's only feature composition from 2007 to 2011, to express its light orchestral tones with any engaging emotional weight until one standout cue at its finale.

Eidelman
He's Just Not That Into You: (Cliff Eidelman) Released for Valentine's Day in 2009, He's Just Not That Into You is one of those dreaded ensemble cast romantic comedies (though the director would prefer that that term not apply) that fails to impress critics but connects with female audiences. That segment of the population dragged their unwilling boyfriends to the movie in large numbers, too, causing grosses of almost $180 million at the box office regardless of the lack of much praise for the film. Whenever you get a cast featuring Jennifer Aniston, Ben Affleck, Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Connelly, Scarlett Johansson, and Justin Long, among others, intertwined in love triangles and series of meaningless but somehow reaffirming relationships, audiences are destined to follow. The "love me" and "love me not" routine is as predictable as the inspiration the title of the movie takes from Sex and the City, though He's Just Not That Into You does have the unusual attribute of being set in the city of Baltimore, not exactly famed romantic territory. While the cast was no doubt assembled with the help of Barrymore in the role of producer, director Ken Kwapis sought a deeper, more moving touch with the script that the run of the mill romantic comedy. His instructions to composer Cliff Eidelman were to tap this emotional depth without simply playing alone as filler material. The score would have to contend with a variety of song placements in He's Just Not That Into You, as expected, including the source performances by Johansson's character. Not surprisingly, Eidelman's contribution to the film isn't significant in length, but it's nice to hear the composer at work once again. Considered one of the industry's most talented prospects in the early 1990's upon his surprising success with Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, Eidelman failed to launch past a series of unheralded projects later in that decade. By the mid-2000's, his output for films had dwindled to a standstill, most of his activity coming in the collaboration with Kwapis. In their three films together prior to He's Just Not That Into You, Eidelman had written a diverse range of music, from the fully orchestral romps of The Beautician and the Beast to the chamber atmosphere of Sexual Life and familiar tones of conservatively pretty drama in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. While none of this music is spectacular, Eidelman has proven himself reliable but rather unlucky.

The insert includes a list of performers and a note from the director about the film and score. As in many of Amazon.com's "CDr on demand" products, the packaging smells incredibly foul when new.
