Plot outline: Jane Goodale (Ashley Judd) 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 (Greg Kinnear). 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 roomate and co-worker Eddie (Hugh Jackman) as fodder for her research, she finds both humor and answers where they were least expected. Summary written by Tenguman After a series of ill-fated relationships, Jane (Ashley Judd) has finally met Mr. Right, Ray (Greg Kinnear) - he's emotionally available, and not afraid of commitment. Six weeks into their blissful courtship, he asks her to move in with him, and they start looking at apartments. But little by little Ray starts to pull away, until Jane realizes that once again she's been dumped. Jane's womanizing coworker, Eddie, just happens to be looking for a roommate, and Jane reluctantly moves in. Desperate to understand what happened and get over Ray, Jane comes up with a theory of interpreting male-female relations by observing the behaviors of wild animals. She shares this idea with a friend who works at a men's magazine (Marisa Tomei) and is given an anonymous editorial column devoted solely to her thoughts on the matter. But no one could have predicted the chord she'd strike among women with her theory, and the column's wild success makes Jane start to question her conclusions - and opens her eyes to what might be right in front of her.

Comment: A woman, Jane (Ashley Judd) falls in love with an executive (Greg Kinnear) at work. She plans to move in with him, gives up her apartment...and he dumps her. She reluctantly moves in with hunky, womanizing co-worker Eddie (Hugh Jackman) who she hates. Naturally, they fall in love. Utterly predictable from first frame to last, but I enjoyed it. The script was OK and there are plenty of good performances. Judd and Jackman are both sexy and funny, and we're treated to a sequence when they're both in nothing but underwear (so we can admire their buff bodies). Kinnear has played this louse role once too often--he looks miserable too. Ellen Barkin and Marisa Tomei, however, are very good in supporting roles. So, you always know what's coming, but Judd and beautiful Jackman (what a face and bod!) make this worth watching.
