TOP 500 REVIEWERon 26 March 2018
This is the kind of film you don't want to take too seriously. Something to watch on a girls' night in or on your own when you need a bit of fluffy escapism with a relatable female lead and a suitably hunky male love interest. Ashley Judd and Hugh Jackman work just fine.

The story has been done a thousand times before and will be done as many times again, but hey, it works. Jane (Judd) works in the cynical environment of a daytime talk show, and she hasn't found love yet. Her impossibly attractive male co-worker Eddie (Jackman) is a womanizer of the first order. In walks sensitive and caring Ray (Greg Kinnear), who has just broken up with his girlfriend. Immediate attraction between Jane and Ray. Hey presto, Jane is in a relationship with Ray. And gets dumped. Stuck for a place to live, she ends up moving in with Eddie. There is quite a bit of fun with these two mismatched flatmates and a few twists and turns before the film winds its way to the predictable ending.

It's an entertaining little film with rather a good cast. Besides the above mentions leads, there is Ellen Barkin with a rather fun performance as talk show host Diane and Marisa Tomei as Jane's bbf Liz. Yeah, go on, curl up on the settee with the dog and the tipple of your choice and enjoy.

The DVD is fine. There are subtitles for those who may need them. Also included are the following extra features:
- Director's Commentary
- 8 Deleted Scenes
- Featurette
- 4 TV Spots
- Theatrical Trailer

This is my "default" film; the one I'll watch again and again, when there's nothing else on. Ashley Judd's character is such a strong, independent and eloquent woman I can't get enough of her. Yes, she gets a bit lost after she has her heart broken, but don't we all? So she tries to make sense and interpret it all - as animal attraction, or the "cow theory" (don't get worried, this isn't a spoiler, it's actually the opening scene). Again, isn't this what we normal women do? (ok, perhaps not going as far as an animal theory!) Hugh Jackman's character is adorable - albeit slightly implausible - and the killer body is a welcome sight! This is a lovely, funny film about dating in modern New York with an intelligent, real woman as the main lead - I just wish there were more Hollywood films like that.

Maybe its because I am over 50 but this film did not impress. I thought it was a funny romance but in the opening scenes it was just two people all over each other all the time. The humour (being American) didnt quite tickle my funny bones either. After 20 minutes I realised I didnt want to sit through the rest of it.

Have to admit... bought this because of Hugh Jackman in it LOL
Really good chick flick although Ashley Judd does become a tad irritating after a bit with her theories and stuff which makes the movie drag a little bit.
All in all a good movie, hey its got Hugh Jackman in it whats not to like haha :)

Animal Attraction is basically about Jane, a woman driven to distraction by men who treat her like dirt. She resorts to developing a semi-scientific theory about the puzzles of male behaviour... but soon learns that not all men, like her recurring flame Ray, are slimy, pathetic slugs.

Hugh Jackman is brilliant in this, a perfect antidote to the spineless Ray... Jackman also looks nothing short of hot in black boxers.

This is very definitely a girl's film, a funny, moving rom-com with great performances all round. The soundtrack is also brilliant. A little-known jewel that I can recommend whole heartedly!

One of my favourite rom-coms. Witty, intelligent, great casting - and Hugh Jackman is gorgeous. Recommended.

I loved this comedy with my favourite actor Hugh Jackman and Greg Kinnear at his best as a the mess you about guy. The plot is a little silly but basically distressed girl messed about by looser who promises everything is comforted and put up' by work friend ( hugh Jackman) who is also a little bruised and battered from a relationship. After much arguing about the relationship between men and woman and some fun, playing semi clad in the kitchen where hugh ripples his muscles they eventually discover that they are in love. A women's film at its best!
