Someone Like You | 2001 | PG-13 | - 6.0.5

After a love-struck talk show booking agent (Ashley Judd) is dumped by her co-worker (Greg Kinnear), she becomes obsessed with proving that men's wandering ways can be traced to bovine mating habits. Based on the novel "Animal Husbandry" by Laura Zigman. Also with Hugh Jackman, Ellen Barkin and Marisa Tomei. [1:33]

SEX/NUDITY 6 - Lots of sexual innuendo, including references to masturbation and animal mating; also, a man insults another with a brief, mild reference to fellatio and a woman tells a man that males of a certain species chew off each other's genitalia after mating. Several kisses, some passionate. A woman takes her diaphragm from a box and blows dust from it (a man is waiting for her in the next room), and in the next scene they kiss very passionately as they roll around on a couch (it's almost comical); we then see their bare backs as they spin around the kitchen (obviously while having intercourse) and also see the woman's bare shoulders and hear a moan as she leans her head over the side of a bed (presumably post-coitus). We see a woman's bare back as she rolls on top of a man in bed and they begin kissing passionately (the scene ends shortly afterwards). A woman wearing a slightly open shirt that reveals a bit of cleavage opens the door to a room where a nude man is lying on his stomach on a bed (from a distance we briefly glimpse his bare back and the side/top of his bare buttocks before she walks in and closes the door). A man and woman -- both clothed -- are shown sleeping in a bed, facing each other and holding hands; the man wakes up and appears to kiss the woman's hand before falling back asleep, then the woman wakes up and tries to get out of bed without waking the man, who ends up throwing his hand on her clothed breast before she can wiggle free (the scene is played for laughs). We briefly see a close-up of a bull's head hovering above a cow's back as the bull and cow mate; a few scientists surrounding the animals giggle a bit. A man has a large "hickey" on his neck. A woman opens a man's medicine cabinet and sees several boxes of condoms. A woman wearing a tiny tank top and tiny panties does a cheerleading routine in front of a man who's wearing only boxers. We see several women wearing cleavage- and/or midriff-revealing tops, a woman wrapped in a blanket and a woman's bare leg and shoulders when she's taking a bubble bath.

VIOLENCE/GORE 0 - In a scene played for laughs, a man walks into a yoga class and accidentally knocks down several women in yoga positions. A man can't make himself inject a syringe into an orange to prepare for giving his wife fertility drug injections; eventually, his wife forcefully jabs the syringe into the orange.

LANGUAGE 5 - One F-word, several anatomical references (one is written), many scatological references, several mild obscenities, and a few insults.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Love relationships, animal mating habits, equating men with animals, promiscuity, monogamy, infidelity, failed relationships, fertility drugs, miscarriage.

MESSAGE - Men are not animals (even thought some might act like animals once in awhile). Relationships fail because of incompatibility, dishonesty, miscommunication or any number of different reasons … but not because all men are innately incapable of being monogamous.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
