How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003)
USA / English
"One of them is lying. So is the other.
"Benjamin Barry (McConaughey) is an advertising executive and ladies' man who, to win a big campaign, bets that he can make a woman fall in love with him in 10 days. Andie Anderson (Hudson) covers the "How To" beat for "Composure" magazine and is assigned to write an article on "How to Lose a Guy in 10 days." They meet in a bar shortly after the bet is made.
This movie was fairly funny. It was a combination of humor, formula,
and predictablility, but still funny. Kate Hudson and Matthew
McConaghey have two different agendas about what to do in ten
days-Hudson to drive a guy away and McConaghey to get a girl to fall
madly in love with him. Of course, their plans go awry and chaos
ensues. I liked it. The two stars had definite chemistry, and it was a
likable chemistry. It was well written. I think there were many
memorable scenes, such as the Knicks games and the black tie party.
Hudson especially gave a terrific turn as the magazine writer who does
her 10 day thing for a magazine article she is working on, and gives a
good over-the-top performance. You might like it if you like the stars
and this type of movie. See it for those.
