Storyline

Jane Goodale has everything going for her. She's a producer of a popular daytime talk show, and is in a hot romance with the show's dashing executive producer Ray. When Ray unexpectedly dumps her, she begins an extensive study of male behavior to try to find out what makes men tick. Her "research" leads her to become an overnight sensation/guru for single women everywhere. When Jane begins to use her womanizing roommate and co-worker Eddie as fodder for her research, she finds both humor and answers where they were least expected. Written by Tenguman

humans versus the Discovery channel!
22 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

Jane works behind the scenes of a talkshow focusing mainly on women when she meets Ray and he seems to be the one and only for her because she sees her friend Eddie with so many women she tries to start off slow knowing that Ray has a girlfriend. When Ray dumps his girlfriend he asks Jane to move in, suddenly things fall apart, Ray gets cold feet and walks out on Jane leaving her homeless since she gave up her apartment for her big move in with Ray...or so that was how it was planned. Eddie asks her to move in and she discovers that Eddie hadn't always been a playboy, but more a guy that had his heartbroken and now sleeps around afraid to commit to just one. She sees things differently and starts comparing men to animals. A friend comes to her in need of a good column written for her magazine and Jane ofcourse agrees to write but she uses a false name explaining the theory of men and bulls, women and cows. The Ray wants to come back making her whole life turn upside down...

I loved this movie, it was a very good laugh, great scenes done by Ashley, Greg and Hugh, but we get to the ending too slow and we don't see anything that shows us of how Eddie falls in love with Jane. Heck we don't even see Jane fall in love all we see is Jane crushed over her broken heart whilst Eddie has more women that we can keep track of and that was the only thing lacking in this otherwise terrific movie. 9 out of 10 it would have made a 10 out of 10 if only the ending didn't suck.
