This is an Australian movie that hasn’t been released yet, so obviously I haven’t seen it, I’ve just seen the trailer. I think it’s coming out in May.
It’s a romantic comedy about a guy who meets a wonderful girl but they break up because he can’t tell her that he loves her even though they’ve been together for more than three years. Which is quite unbelievable really … I can’t actually imagine that happening in real life, but anyway, it’s just a movie.
And in one of the scenes in the trailer, the guy, Jim, says to his girlfriend:
We’ve been together for three and a half years now and I …
and he wants to say: I love you, but instead he says:
I am so into you.
And she is not impressed. She says:
Into me? You should be into bands and football and porno.
To be into something means to be interested in something or to like or enjoy something.
For example you could say:
I’m really into rock music.
He’s really into sports.
But it’s not a very romantic thing to say to someone, so, if you want to tell someone you love them, you should say:I love you, not: I’m into you.
