Someone Like You 2001

     Jane Goodale is working her dream job as a producer of a popular daytime talk show.  She has just begun a new romance with the executive producer of the show.  Jane and Ray start looking at stunning apartments in New York City.  Jane starts packing and lets her landlord know she is moving.  Then, the boom lowers and Ray dumps her unexpectedly.  She will have no place to live, she really thought he was the one and this would work out.  Eddie also works on the show and he’s been looking for a roommate so Jane moves to his apartment.  Jane writes a magazine article about men dumping women and it becomes an overnight success.
     Everyone believes an elderly woman scientist wrote this article.  The comparison is that men are like bulls and they constantly move on to the next cow.  Jane doesn’t know what she’s going to do since there is so much interest in the article and it’s really a fake?  3 ½* (I liked this movie)

97 min, Comedy directed by Tony Goldwyn with Ashley Judd, Greg Kinnear, High Jackman, Marisa Tomei, Ellen Barkin, Catherine Dent.

Note:  Imdb 6.1 out of 10, 43% critic 57% audience on Rotten Tomatoes, Roger Ebert 2*, Amazon 4* out of 5* with 2119 reviews.
Special Note:  Filmed in New York City, New York.  There is a scene with Jane doing her cheerleader routine at Paul G. Blazer Memorial High.  Ashley Judd actually went to Paul G. Blazer High School in Ashland, Kentucky.  Jane is getting powder on her nose before going on the talk show.  Her mother Naomi Judd is the makeup artist.  There is another movie with the same title released in 1978.  Jane's name is similar to Jane Goodall, a real scientist!!
