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

Pure man hating garbage
1 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lets start by pointing out that statistically, women have been shown to cheat more than men. A show known as "Cheaters" showed that 50% of husbands and boyfriends cheat and 60% of girlfriends and wives cheat. This statistic was based specifically on the tens of thousands of people their field of service is contracted under to investigate such suspicions which means, these are confirmed cases making these statistics based on fact. The primary difference was the way they cheat and what they also found was, men were far more likely to admit to it where as women were not.

Movies like this are absolutely ridiculous and brainwashing. It's a world where all men only want sex, all women want love and romance and of course, never use men for sex, money, social identity, career opportunities or any other such selfish superficial purpose. This movie also gives us good reason to hate these mainstream commercial actors because they're willing to sign on to such toxic material. The fact is, they live in the real world not this b.s. world where the story takes place and they know what a crock it is. Just the same, a few million dollars and residuals for life are of course reason enough to spread this battle of the sexes propaganda through out the world.

I do however think this movie is worth watching just once so you can scoff at it, the actors, writers and director. The opening scene starts with Naomi Judd comparing men to livestock, absolutely disgusting and insulting and more than enough reason to make us dislike her not simply just the character. Hopefully you're intelligent and deep enough to be offended by this movie and the stereotypes it sells as much as I was since it's a complete work of fiction totally void of reality.
