So-so romantic comedy for teens.

It's neither clever nor that funny, the starry cast is underused, and the potential for a much wittier script never fulfilled.

While Judd and Kinnear are both quite good, it's Jackman that completely steals the show.

Desde o início da história fica óbvio, para o espectador, quem são as duas pessoas que dividirão o inevitável beijo final - e não há surpresa alguma neste aspecto. Infelizmente, o roteiro não se preocupa em explicar porque isso acontece.

It's cheap and it's lowdown, and to those responsible for this exercise in devolution: Honestly, I'm not sure I want to know someone like you.

'Nothing that you haven't wept or winced through during primetime TV but saved from the truly awful thanks to the performances of Judd and Jackman.'

A movie that seems the essence of a trivial romantic comedy for its first half, then grows up and gets serious about life.

Displaying the same powerful charisma that won him rave reviews as Wolverine in X-Men, Jackman simply ignites the screen in all his scenes.

Movies like this soar or sink on the strength of their central couple, and the intoxicating combination of Judd and Jackman makes "Someone" well worth watching.

Visualmente no tiene mucho que ofrecernos y si vamos con la esperanza de ver una realización excelente, olvídenlo.
| Original Score: 6/10

Hollywood needs to realize that it's not the '40s anymore; women don't need a man to be happy.

Gentle and cute, chatty and smart, the film at least holds our interest, mostly due to the sheer charm of its cast.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

...a pathetic mess...

It's about the most predictable -- and least original -- film you'll see for weeks.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Like cinematic Olestra, it'll slide right through your brain leaving no impression.

A sassy, romantic comedy about the battle of the sexes, Someone Like You is a delight.

It is a well-directed, polished romantic comedy with top-notch acting talent.

That Jane will see the flaws of her theory is a given, but it's an intriguing, if uneven, journey of discovery.
Ted Murphy

Someone Like You is as bland as its title.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Strong familiarity does not breed contempt, and that's all due to two pairs of words: Ashley Judd, Hugh Jackman.
