Critic's Review Heading
Average
As the product of a promising young director (in this case, Tony Goldwyn), Someone Like You is surprisingly poorly made. It is disappointing without being inept. For most of its running length, this movie meanders unfocused, spending more time developing the lead character's cynical life-view than building up the central romance. Then, when it comes time for a climax and conclusion, we are subjected to a rushed, artificial happy ending that is unearned, and, as a result, is unsatisfying. 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".

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Not as well liked as I had thought it would be. Still, overall, the opinions were pretty decent. Most people enjoyed the movie, but not very many loved it, or for that matter, hated it. It's just an average romantic comedy that most will, at the very least, enjoy somewhat. Being an inexpensive rental, I would say it's certainly worth seeing. I believe most will find it entertaining and funny.

Publisher Comments: (before opinions collected)
This is a very funny and entertaining romantic comedy. From the laughter I heard, it was quite apparent the audience was certainly enjoying it. Parent's should be sure to read the detailed content, due to the sexual aspects of this movie. For adults and older teens, this would make a great date movie, even for you old married couples. Make it a date and rent "Someone Like You." I'm confident you will enjoy it.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE

Jane Goodale (ASHLEY JUDD) is a young woman living in New York who is determined to succeed both professionally as a talent booker for a popular talk show, as well as romantically. When the show's dashing new executive producer Ray Brown (GREG KINNEAR) begins to woo Jane, she is on top of the world. Soon Ray's uttering those three little words, and the besotted couple find a cozy love nest to share. But when Ray inexplicably cools their sizzling hot romance, Jane is absolutely floored — and unmoored.

In order to survive the breakup, Jane searches fervently for an explanation of Ray's behavior and thinks she's found it, in of all places, the animal world. Discovering an eerie correlation between men and their bestial brethren, Jane researches animal mating habits.

Because Jane gave up her apartment when she was about to move in with Ray, she must frantically search for a new place. She finds a "home" of sorts, plus some Inspiration, in the most unexpected of places: Her womanizing co-worker Eddie Alden (HUGH JACKMAN) not only provides her with a spare bedroom but with a prototypical example of the male animal to study.

Jane shares this newfound knowledge with her equally single friend Liz (MARISA TOMEI), an editor at a men's magazine, who convinces her to write a pseudonymous sex column. Jane's column quickly becomes a sensation and she unwittingly finds herself the most talked-about woman in the nation.

But despite Jane's attempts to de-mystify romance, and as things heat up between her and Eddie, Jane finds that after all, the human heart even a man's — is more complicated than mere instinct.
