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
Early in the movie when Jane and Ray are shopping for a condo, they fall in love with a high rise and the real estate agent says, "You can see right down to the World Trade Center" as Jane and Ray go out on the balcony with the Twin Towers prominently visible behind them. The DVD for this movie was released September 18, 2001, exactly one week after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, which gives it the distinction of being the first DVD released after 9/11 to be instantly outdated by the tragedy.

Despite what critics had to say, I loved this movie. It was one of the few romantic comedies that I actually like. It isn't the best movie in the world, but it certainly isn't the worst movie in the world. To be honest, I only saw it because I love Ashley Judd. She does not give the best performance in the movie though. Hugh Jackman does. He's a fantastic actor. He was great in X-MEN, SWORDFISH, and he's great in this. I like him as one of the romantic leads and I hope to see him in more romantic comedies and I hope to see more romantic comedies like this.
