Overview

Based on Laura Zigman's 1998 novel Animal Husbandry, this romantic comedy centers on Jane Goodale Ashley Judd, a talk-show producer who finds herself suddenly abandoned by her boyfriend Greg Kinnear. After this untimely breakup, Jane begins to develop a thesis that male behavior is directly related to that of wildlife, with similar patterns existing in both. She studies the tendency for animals to be noncommittal and compares men to bulls, dogs, and other creatures. To prove her theories, she enlists the help of her roommate Eddie Hugh Jackman, a womanizer who falls into all of the patterns of her research. When applying her studies to Eddie, she gains exposure and suddenly becomes a sensation as a pseudonymous sex columnist. This is the second directorial effort from actor Tony Goldwyn, after his 1999 feature A Walk on the Moon.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jason Clark
About as knee-deep in unoriginal territory as you can get while still remaining entertaining and somewhat charming, Tony Goldwyn's romantic comedy is buoyed by its two appealing, confident lead actors (Ashley Judd and Hugh Jackman) and a smartly chosen supporting cast. There is very little in this film that hasn't been lifted from countless other movies of its type (notably Billy Wilder's entire oeuvre, for starters), but like the actor/director's superb, highly underrated first effort A Walk on the Moon, this film has enough scenes that ring true for intelligent audiences. The picture lacks assurance in a few departments (notably the wobbly adaptation of Laura Zigman's novel), but has a scrappy likability all its own. Judd, in particular, gives a surprisingly resourceful portrayal, proving she can do light comedy with the same ease as many of her contemporaries, who don't come off half as agreeably. The film was known during filming as Animal Husbandry, the title of the book on which it is based.
Rolling Stone - Peter Travers
Ashley Judd shines like gold dust.... Tony Goldwyn, working from a wry script by Elizabeth Chandler, builds on the flair he showed for shifting relationships in his 1999 directorial debut, A Walk on the Moon. The actors respond with lovely nuances.

    sad excuse for a movie

    This movie was poorly done and is a flat out failure. The actors can't act at all, they don't make you feel as if this is real life like many other great movies do. Its lacking in a lot of ways. Personally, I love romantic comedy's and this one is not good at all.
