Someone Like You Reviews
Ashley Judd seems to have shied away from her usual 'woman with a brain' roles in this cliche romantic comedy and at times it's cringe worthy. Fortunately, she has the charm to get away it in most scenes.
Greg Kinnear and Hugh Jackman offer ordinary performances, making one wonder whether all involved in this film were just after some extra cash.
The movie does produce some amusing moments, but in the end there's nothing new here.
So yeah, this is a totally predicable chick-flick but I liked everyone in it. The story was fun and easy, as was a younger Hugh Jackman playing the charming womanizer (easy on the eyes that is). For some inexplicable reason (because I don't usually notice these types of things) I also really liked Ashley Judd's wardrobe here, but that may have been the cold medication. Also includes Marisa Tomei, Ellen Barkin and a lot of smoking, which I guess people still did back in 2001. *sigh* 11/7/14
