Someone Like You
relatively smart romantic comedy starring ashley judd, greg kinnear and hugh jackman. all are good in very different roles. it reminded me a bit of films like easy, only smarter, or sex & the city, but less vapid. essentially it’s about a 30-something woman who is sorting through troubles with her relationships and gains some notoriety through an essay she writes about the opposite sex. the end is a let down, and i didn’t like some of the cutesy touches that were woven into the storytelling, but it was thoughtful and deep enough to get a pass. anytime marissa tomei is the second hottest woman in a film, it’s a notable occasion.
