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the 9/11 terrorist attacks, which gives it the distinction of being the first DVD released after 9/11 to be instantly outdated by the tragedy.

The closing scene was re-shot while Hugh Jackman was filming X-Men and so Eddie's hairstyle is different from the rest of the movie. See more »
Of all the things you said to me that night, the thing that scared me the most was that I would find it again. Because I have.

SOMEONE LIKE YOU..., in my opinion, is a sweet, heartwarming, and charming romantic comedy. When Jane (Ashley Judd) got dumped by Ray (Greg Kinnear), I felt really sorry for her. This was because I could relate to how she was feeling. However, when she began to fall for Eddie (Hugh Jackman) and pick up the pieces of her heart, I felt really warm and tingly inside. If you ask me, this movie had terrific performances, excellent direction, perfect casting, and nice scenery, especially for a movie set in New York. Now in conclusion, if you are a fan of Ashley Judd, Greg Kinnear, or Hugh Jackman, you should definitely see this movie. Prepare for lots of laughs and romance when you see it.
