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

Sweet, heartwarming, and charming romantic comedy
23 November 2005 | by (Chantilly, Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

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.
