Someone Like You Reviews
I can't remember the last time I saw a character in a contemporary movie who wasn't a mob boss or a femme fatale light up a cigarette. There is seriously so much smoking! And the mention of WTC really dates the movie.
Fun good movie about adult relationships that easy come by and easy go. You could learn a few things about this movie and apply them to your life, the most logic things in life are probably the one's you should take advantage of. It was very nice story and great actors were involved. Loved the ending, how could you not?
After a series of ill-fated relationships, Jane has finally met Mr. Right, Ray - he's emotionally available and not afraid of commitment. Six weeks into their blissful courtship, he asks her to move in with him, and they start looking at apartments. But then Ray starts to pull away, until Jane realizes that she's been dumped. Jane's womanizing coworker, Eddie, is looking for a roommate, and Jane moves in. Desperate to understand what happened and get over Ray, Jane comes up with a theory of interpreting male-female relations by observing the behaviors of animals. She shares this idea with a friend who works at a men's magazine and is given an anonymous editorial column devoted solely to her thoughts on the matter. But no one could have predicted the chord she'd strike among women with her theory, and the column's wild success makes Jane start to question her conclusions - and opens her eyes to what might be right in front of her.
Okay enough reminiscing. Hugh and Ashley have very bad chemistry in this film-and not for lack of trying. There's just something about seeing them together that makes me think 'just friends' and well they should have remained. It was too sudden the introduction of Eddie's past flame (remember, Yoga isn't always a good way to spend your money) and his reaction was so real, that Ashley's character's insensitivity was really painful to watch. The line where he looks at her and say "why are you doing this to yourself?" was the highlight of the film. A great question to start what should have been a fantastic eye-opening dialogue. But it didn't, once again, he was forced to step off and pretend to have a good time alone while he knew she was killing herself at home. It made no sense. There were so many opportunities in this film to build a real sense of chemistry and comeraderie and yet, it always fell short. I was entertained, Hugh and Ashley-but not pleased. Try again harder, I know you can do it.
