MOVIE:  Someone Like You

NUTSHELL:  Unlucky in love Ashley Judd creates a scientific hypothesis to prove she’s not a loser.

GOOD THINGS:  Ashley Judd is adorable and it turns out Hugh Jackman isn’t bad looking without the mutant sideburns.

BAD THINGS:  Based on a book it can’t possibly live up to, contains character named “kooky staff member”

FEATURES:  Marisa Tomei, Ellen Barkin, Hugh Downs, talking squirrel

UNCOMFORTABLE MOMENTS:  Anything involving Greg Kinnear. Am I the only one who has a problem with him?

NOTABLE:  I can suspend disbelief and think that Ashley Judd is an unlucky in love production assistant and not a fabulously fabulous race-car-driver-dating sex on wheels actress for almost one second.

BEST PART:  Ashley Judd’s breakdown mid-meeting.

BEST LINE:  “The world is one big used cow lot.” and “She even has a bun!”

CROWNS:  5 out of 5
