Someone Like You

Critics Consensus

A light and predictable, if somewhat shallow, romantic comedy that's easy to sit through because of the charming leads.

Movie Info

Jane Goodale (Ashley Judd) has everything going for her. She's a producer on a popular daytime talk show, and is in a hot romance with the show's dashing executive producer Ray (Greg Kinnear). But when the relationship goes terribly awry, Jane begins an extensive study of the male animal, including her womanizing roommate Eddie (Hugh Jackman). Jane puts her studies and romantic misadventure to use as a pseudonymous sex columnist -- and becomes a sensation.

Audience Reviews for Someone Like You

    odd film that doesn't sell on the chemistry between its leads. Well cast and original but doesn't deliver. Romantic comedies are a dime a dozen but you need to have the simple aspects correct.

    Judd and Kinnear are good enough for this but Jackman is the main reason to watch this so-so rom com.

    The soft science about men's natural proclivity to hit-it-then-quit-it isn't terribly scintillating nor monumental. There's not much to this movie, but that kinda makes it somewhat enjoyable. Just some day-to-day dialogue and a couple cute/sad/sweet moments (Jane's cheerleading, Eddie running into Becca at yoga, Eddie looking out for Jane on New Year's). 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.

    The only great thing in this movie is, it doesn't matter how many food Ashley Judd eats, she still got a hot bang body! 5.2/10.
