Jane Goodale has everything going for her. She's a producer of a popular daytime talk show, and is in a hot romance with the show's dashing executive producer Ray. When Ray unexpectedly dumps her, she begins an extensive study of male behavior to try to find out what makes men tick. Her "research" leads her to become an overnight sensation/guru for single women everywhere. When Jane begins to use her womanizing roommate and co-worker Eddie as fodder for her research, she finds both humor and answers where they were least expected.Written by
Early in the movie, when Jane and Ray are shopping for a condo, they fall in love with a high rise and the real estate agent says, "You can see right down to the World Trade Center" as Jane and Ray go out on the balcony with the Twin Towers prominently visible behind them. The DVD for this movie was released September 18, 2001, exactly one week after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, which gives it the distinction of being the first DVD released after 9/11 to be instantly outdated by the tragedy.

There is an alternate ending sequence on the DVD. The final exchange between Jane and Eddie take place on a rooftop, and not in the street like in the released version. See more »
Romantic comedies are all hampered by the same thing, predictability.
We know the female lead will have her heart broken, and then through a series of madcap adventures, find out her one true love was there all along. "Someone Like You" is no different in this regard. So the only way for such a film to win us over, is with great acting from the stars, and more importantly, an entertaining and well thought out script. "Someone Like You" meets both criteria.
Ashley Judd and Hugh Jackman have great chemistry together, and give fine performances. Greg Kinnear is, well, Greg Kinnear. But the script is what brings this movie home. It passes over some of the more obvious plot points, in favor of predictable, yet satisfying outcomes.
Not a bad date for women, and us cows alike!
