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

Romantic comedies for the masses should have no expectations
7 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

There is only one reason I would want to watch this movie - Hugh Jackman, the trailer advertised him half-naked so there I was accurate as an atomic clock when the movie started.

Ashley Judd is a versatile actress yet when given such ugly clichéd role to play she can only make the character slightly less appalling then written. The movie employs every sugared done-to-death cliché.

Strangely, the movie works. Mainly due to the actors, the very much underused Marisa Tomei is excellent and so is Hugh Jackman who has to play a cliché as well(anyone heard about reformed bad boys in a movie?). Ashley Judd is wonderful considering the bad lines she has to work with. So despite the lack of chemistry between actors, bad plot line that has more holes then a matrix-printer invoice it is a good romp to watch whilst doing admin or chopping up vegetables for a large salad.

This is pure oversweetened mass produced candy. We all know it is bad for our teeth but we cannot help by snatching a bite once in a while for some guilty enjoyment, as long as we don't overindulge of course:)
