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

Well, Surprise, Surprise!!!!
8 May 2002 | by hamburglerSee all my reviews

I went into this movie, thinking, "Great, chick flick!". But I was pleasantly surprised. Despite the fact that I just adore Ashley Judd, this is a really fun, funny, and smart movie. Judd and Jackman's scenes are truly charming, and their chemistry is undeniable--they look so great together, you almost wish it wasn't just a movie. And Jackman, who is an Aussie, gives off an amazing accent, amongst some serious thespian skill.

The movie is one of those "war between the sexes" type movies. There's a little heckling back and forth, but I think it adds to the movie's charm, and it's tasteful--no bashing or anything like that. But I think it's one of those feel good movies. It's just really fun to watch.

So, I honestly recommend it, definitely a good movie.
