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

Witty, Funny, a Movie for Women
22 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ladies, we know what it feels to be completely in love and then be cast aside for little or no reason and it stings. Well our heroine in "Someone Like You" set about expressing her disgust of male behavior and her anguish at being dumped in unorthodox methods. I had no clue what to think of the film when I first watched, but within five to ten minutes I was laughing so hard that I began to enjoy the story. Now I'm not a girl who likes players, but I couldn't help immediately falling in love with the character of Eddie Alden, played by Hugh Jackman, just like Ashley Judd's character did. Way too funny and being a huge fan of Hugh's acting, how can I resist.

Not a fan of rom-coms either, but as previously stated the acting and the wit and humor of the script was appealing to me. Give it a shot if you're a fan of the rom-com or comedy genre or if you need a good laugh on a bad day.
