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
When Eddie makes the bet with Jane, trying to get her to do her high school cheer, he says he'll throw 3 dumplings in the garbage left-handed. Hugh Jackman is left-handed, so this really wasn't difficult. See more »
When Jane and her friend are sitting across from each other in one of the cafe scenes, Jane's arms continually change from being crossed in front of her (in shots of her face) to being on the table (shots from behind her). See more »
Never underestimate casual sex Jane, it can be very liberating.

There is an alternate ending sequence on the DVD. The final exchange between Jane and Eddie take place on a rooftop, and not in the street like in the released version. See more »

Someone Like You might like this movie
Romantic comedies are all hampered by the same thing, predictability.
We know the female lead will have her heart broken, and then through a series of madcap adventures, find out her one true love was there all along. "Someone Like You" is no different in this regard. So the only way for such a film to win us over, is with great acting from the stars, and more importantly, an entertaining and well thought out script. "Someone Like You" meets both criteria.
Ashley Judd and Hugh Jackman have great chemistry together, and give fine performances. Greg Kinnear is, well, Greg Kinnear. But the script is what brings this movie home. It passes over some of the more obvious plot points, in favor of predictable, yet satisfying outcomes.
Not a bad date for women, and us cows alike!
