Overview

Two New Yorkers fight the battle of the sexes to a standstill without entirely realizing it in this romantic comedy. Andie Kate Hudson is a young journalist who longs to cover political stories, but in the meantime she finds herself writing for a women's magazine called Composure, where her editor Lana Jong Bebe Neuwirth has her writing a fluffy advice column. After hearing of the latest dating laments of her relationship-challenged friend Michelle Kathryn Hahn, Andie sells Lana on the idea of writing a piece on the things women do to alienate the men they love, which she'll demonstrate by winning and then driving away a man in a mere ten days. Meanwhile, Ben Matthew McConaughey is an advertising man who wants to land a prestige diamond account at his firm. Ben is competing with his pals, Spears Michael Michele and Green Shalom Harlow, for the assignment, so Ben tells his boss Phillip Warren Robert Klein that he's the man for the job because he understands the fair sex so well he can make any woman fall for him in less than two weeks. As fate would have it, Andie and Ben end up choosing one another for their mutual assignments, with neither knowing about each other's secret agenda as Ben strives to hold on to Andie while she does everything in her power to annoy him. How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days was loosely based on the self-help book of the same name subtitled The Universal Don't of Dating written by Michele Alexander and Jeannie Long.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Josh Ralske
How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, based on a self-help book parody by Michele Alexander and Jeannie Long (which includes stick figure cartoons illustrating the mistakes women make), is a doggedly formulaic romantic comedy, buoyed by a few genuinely amusing scenes and the potent charisma of its two stars. Kate Hudson has a genuine comedic gift, somehow locating a real live person amid the crass conventions of her role, while Matthew McConaughey brings his roguish charm to full bear. As Andie (Hudson) thinks of new (and not particularly inventive) ways of tormenting Ben (McConaughey), her victim, director Donald Petrie (Miss Congeniality) keeps things relatively light and breezy, letting the actors do splendid work. The scene in which Andie comes up with a humiliating "pet name" for Ben's manhood is particularly well played. Kathryn Hahn and Annie Parisse are also very good as Andie's co-workers, named after the book's authors. Despite their efforts, and solid work from Adam Goldberg and Thomas Lennon as Ben's co-workers, the film isn't very convincing in portraying these peoples' work lives, which are pivotal to the fairly ludicrous plot that the filmmakers (including Burr Steers, the writer-director of Igby Goes Down, who gets a screenwriting credit here) have wrapped around the book's goofy relationship tips. There's also some unnecessary and embarrassing scatological humor (an incontinent dog and a flatulent uncle) thrown in. But the film is serviceable entertainment, just funny and romantic enough. Then, toward the end, it goes through the predictable motions, presumably set in stone for every Hollywood romantic comedy from the 1980s on, to wrap things up in the accustomed manner, befitting stick figures more than fully drawn characters.
San Francisco Chronicle
It's about as close to French farce as romantic comedies get, and the closer the better.

    I HATE chick flicks!

    I really hate chick flicks. They're all exactly the same, nothing original, nothing innovative, and they all use exactly the same formula: girl meets guy, things go well, conflict begins, conflict gets worse, some funny stuff happens, some sensative stuff happens, guy and girl almost lose each other forever, guy and girl (surprise, surpise!) end up together. This is not the way the world works. However, despite it having the same formula, "How to..." is one of the two chick flicks I've ever liked. (The other being "13 going on 30.") It was funny, insightful, and really let the audience see how guys and girls think in terms of relationships. In short, it was very realistic - except the end, of course. (But who wants realism when they could have the happily ever after crap?) Kate Hudson made the show worth watching, she was beyond adorable and really made you laugh. I would recommend this to people who don't like chick flicks.

    The best romantic comedy of the year!

    How to Lose a guy in Ten Days is the best movie of the year. For weeks I told everyone this was the movie to see. It kept me laughing continuously with humor even the male population can enjoy. As an audience my girlfriends and I found ourselves comparing some of the things Andie puts Ben through to things we have done in our own relationships. For example at times I ask my boyfriend, ''What are you thinking about'' just as Andie did. Guys connect with Ben when he is trying to have a guys night and Andie intrudes.This adds more to the flick because viewers can associate their own lives with the film. The most humorous of all was the over-the-edge stunts she pulled such as; making a scrapbook of their future family after a mere few days of dating, buying him and their new dog matching outfits, and of course naming his manhood ''Princess Sophia''. Mathew McConaughey and Kate Hudson are a great on screen team. They are both beautiful people and tremendous actors.The writer keeps viewers wondering if it will all work out in the end. I laughed a lot, I cried a little, and bought the movie the first day it came out. The romance warms your heart and the laughter never stops. The story also follows Andie as a writer. This draws viewers into Kate Hudson's character, Andie. With a PG-13 rating, the movie is safe for almost the whole family. It is good, clean humor with a little language and no sex scenes.

    Fun but not memorable (save the love fern!)

    This is a fun movie. Kate Hudson’s cute and Mathew McConaughey’s charming. The people who played their best friends were great. This movie could be better though, something was a little off, but it still has a wonderful feel-good quality. As for the overly sensitive person who complained about two small (and funny) jokes referencing Tourette’s and Bipolar. Lighten up and Frost You!

    I L-O-V-E-D it!

    It was such a cute movie, i actually watched it 2 times in a row, and thats a first for me! If u havent seen it, u should. If you are looking for some great underlying meaning to the whole thing, then this is not the movie for you. Its simply a light comedy, that was hilarious. Go see it!

    Probably the WORST movie I've ever seen

    If I had to make a list of the worst movies I've ever seen, this one would top the list. Not too far into it, it became dull and plodding, and I started to wonder how soon it would end. I started to just turn it off and not torture myself any more, but I'd paid my $3.50 at Blockbuster to rent the thing, so decided to try to make it through. I also found a couple of parts offensive. Right after Ben starts dating Andie, and she starts using her tactics on him, one of his co-workers comments that 'maybe she's Bipolar'. I know someone with Bipolar disorder, and obviously the writers don't know how much that can ruin someone's life, or hopefully they wouldn't take the opportunity to be so insensitive. Later, when she's going to meet his family, he makes a comment that they 'all have Tourette's'. How many groups of people do the writers want to try to degrade? Apparently they then decided they'd offended enough groups of people, so they decide to offend us all with a boring, predictable plot that had me counting the minutes until it was over. Near the end I actually felt embarassed for the actors for having to do this film. Don't waste your time.
