Someone Like You Reviews

June 24, 2006
It's neither clever nor that funny, the starry cast is underused, and the potential for a much wittier script never fulfilled.

March 30, 2001
A little lifeless.
March 30, 2001
Ashley Judd tries to make Jane interesting, but seems to be longing for some decent situations and dialogue -- and no bull.
March 30, 2001
A romantic comedy with insights into sex and relationships that are old and obvious.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
March 30, 2001
Refreshingly funny.
March 30, 2001
All over the place, and seems to have been made by embittered married people.
March 30, 2001
Elizabeth Chandler's script has, by my count, exactly one sort-of-funny line and not a single scene whose comic possibilities are successfully exploited.

Bland, predictable, sitcom-esque.

Stars Ashley Judd, Greg Kinnear, Hugh Jackman and director Tony Goldwyn are probably all hoping that with a title so blandly nondescriptive, no one will see it, and promising careers will be left unblemished.
March 30, 2001
The film, whose forgettable title is a good indication of its originality, is little more than a collection of Judd's excessive facial expressions and body movements.
March 30, 2001
An enjoyable pastry of a film that, for the first time in years, shows off Judd's considerable talents to full effect.
March 30, 2001
A pretty lame premise.

Forgettable affair.

March 29, 2001
Someone Like You hammers so hard at its cutesy premise of animal-mating-ritual theories that it fairly numbs you.
March 29, 2001
This may be a 'chick flick' or, I suppose, a 'cow flick.' But I'd like to know what 'bull' can resist that.
March 29, 2001
There's nothing else about Someone Like You to separate it from the herd.
March 29, 2001
An oddly flat, quirky romantic comedy.
March 29, 2001
Isn't exactly a great date movie unless you like to argue afterward.
March 29, 2001
Boring and safe.
March 29, 2001
The very definition of innocuous.
Full Review | Original Score: D+
March 29, 2001
It seemed over-slick, artificial, unpleasantly self-congratulatory -- a pseudo-Nora Ephron yarn set in the SoHo-Greenwich Village area. More damagingly, it's not very funny.
March 29, 2001
Definitely likeable.

March 27, 2001
A particularly shallow dissection of single-woman blues.
March 27, 2001
Someone Like You could probably be charitably characterized as 'cute,' but there's such a lack of direction and energy that it could also be described as 'sleep inducing.'
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
March 26, 2001
The filmmakers seem to be feeling their way toward a contemporary slant on romance but wind up taking refuge in old-fashioned cliches and trite plot twists.
March 22, 2001
An appealingly quirky love story.
