How Do You Know is a charming romantic comedy written and directed by James L. Brooks. Reese Witherspoon is Lisa, an optimistic and determined pro softball player who is at a crossroads when she is cut from her team. She starts dating Owen Wilson, a womanizer who is clearly wrong for her, but who offers a distraction from her sorrows. Then she meets Paul Rudd, who is suffering from his own life crisis - and somehow they find a bond, despite their problems. Jack Nicholson plays Paul Rudd's big-businessman father who stirs up trouble. Great cast, great dialogue, no violence, uplifting ending. I thought it was great!
