Where did you watch this movie?

Embedded with quirky comedy and soulful romance, this contemporary relationship drama delves into the fluctuating fortunes in the life of Jane Goodale, a successful young woman, who 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. When Ray unexpectedly ends their relationship, she begins an extensive study of male behavior to try to find out what men value in a relationship and what keeps them going. Her "research" leads her to become an overnight sensation/guru for single women everywhere. When Jane begins to use her womanizing roommate and co-worker Eddie as fodder for her research, she finds both humor and answers where they were least expected.

The story about the one that got away and the one she never saw coming.
Filming Locations:
The closing scene was re-shot while Hugh Jackman was filming X-Men and so Eddie's hairstyle is different from the rest of the movie.

The light switches change position when Jane and Eddie are chatting in her bedroom.

Jane's handbag straps change position between shots as she tells her girlfriend that Brown has invited her for New Year's Eve.

The same extras walk back and forth in the background during Jane and Eddie's conversation at the end of the film.

As Jane runs from the studio after Eddie at the end, her right hand is gloved but her left hand is ungloved (and in her pocket). When she reaches Eddie her left hand is gloved.

When Jane finds out that Ray and Diane are "back together", Diane is sitting at her desk. Her legs alternate between being on the desk and under the desk between shots.

After Jane and Eddie go downstairs to the bar, Jane gets up to go to the bathroom. When the girl Eddie picked up opens the bathroom door, Jane's arms repeatedly jump from behind her back to in front of her between shots.

Eddie starts feeding Jane noodles with his left hand, then is seen feeding her with his right hand as camera angles changes.

When Jane and her friend are sitting across from each other in one of the cafe scenes, Jane's arms continually change from being crossed in front of her (in shots of her face) to being on the table (shots from behind her).

In the final scene, while Jane is talking to Eddie she is wearing a very bright pinkish lipstick/gloss. When they kiss she is obviously wearing less or no lip makeup.

Before Jane shakes hands with Isabel, her hand is not holding any tissue paper but when she shakes hand she was holding some tissue paper. Her hand is seen not holding any tissue paper once they stopped shaking hands.

When Jane goes with Ray to buy him a new shirt, the shirts on the rack change.

Crew/Equipment Visible
When Jane is yelling at Ray in Diane's office, you can see an orange X where 'Ashely Judd' is standing. The camera men had zoomed too far out that you could see the marker.

Factual Mistake
The amygdala is not located in the nasal cavity - as Jane reads in one of her text books. It is a subcortical structure found in the temporal lobe of the brain.

Factual Mistake
H&H (a well-known bagelry in New York) does not toast or put cream cheese on its bagels.

Revealing Mistakes
When Jane is looking at search engine results while doing research on the Internet, the browser title bar says it's displaying a GIF file.

Revealing Mistakes
Jane's shirt sleeves change positions while she is talking to Eddie in her room after they had spent the night together in the same bed.
Early in this movie when Jane and Ray are shopping for a condo, they fall in love with a high rise and the real estate agent says, "You can see right down to the World Trade Center" as Jane and Ray go out on the balcony with the Twin Towers prominently visible behind them. The DVD for this movie was released September 18, 2001, exactly one week after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, which gives it the distinction of being the first DVD released after 9/11 to be instantly outdated by the tragedy.

While eating old Chinese, Ashley Judd tells Hugh Jackman that she went to Paul Blazer High School, home of the Tomcats. The Judds are from Ashland KY, home of the real Paul Blazer High School, and the Tomcats.

This is the first movie where all 3 Judd women participated at the same time: the lead role Ashley Judd, the make-up artist Naomi Judd and first end credit song Wynonna Judd.

The makeup artist trying to put powder on Jane's (Ashley Judd) face right before she goes on Diane's show is played by Naomi Judd, Ashley Judd's mother.

Jane tells Eddie that she was a cheerleader at Paul G. Blazer Memorial High in Cincinnati, Ohio. Ashley Judd did attend Paul G. Blazer High School which is actually in Ashland, Kentucky. However, she goes on to say that the Tomcats were the state football champs in 1989. The Ohio State high school football champs were the Fighting Tigers of Ironton, Ohio - rivals of the Tomcats of Ashland, KY.

Eddie Alden's phone number, 555-0134, is the same as Teddy's number in Memento (2000), Marla Singer's in Fight Club (1999), the Hong Kong Restaurant in Harriet the Spy (1996), and a Mental institution in an episode of Millennium (1996).

Director Tony Goldwyn objected to the change from the title from the book ("Animal Husbandry"), but gave into the new title after some persuasion from the marketing department.

The voice-over on the nature show Jane watches on TV in her old apartment is performed by the director, Tony Goldwyn.

While Marisa Tomei is talking to Ashley Judd in the bar about men's fears and such, she mentions men's fear of balding. There just happens to be a completely bald man sitting right behind her.
