How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days
Starring: Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey
Directed by: Donald Petrie
Rated: PG-13



How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days is adorable and genuinely funny! The teaming of mansteak Matthew McConaughey and second-generation cutie pie Kate Hudson works like it's their fifth screwball comedy together; they match beautifully.

The story goes a successful ad man (Matthew McConaughey) wants to be even more successful. But he has his eyes set on an ad account that the big boss feels is better run by women. He connives a scheme to prove his powers over women by getting one of the creatures to fall in love with him in ten days - that's when they pitch the big account. The idea being if he can get any woman to fall in ten days he's worthy of running the ad campaign.

Meanwhile, in a similar career driven motive, (Kate Hudson) the "How To" columnists for a girly Cosmo-like mag gets looped into an assignment on the mistakes women make in relationships; too possessive, clingy, affectionate…etc.etc. She wants to teach her readers how to lose a guy in 10 days if they make the mistakes she does that is. It's to be a reverse psychology article.

By the magic of film and coincidences the two start dating and the hilarity begins as they are pitted against each other their secret motive of career advancements in mind. Remember his goal is to get her so smitten she blurts out the dating death march. He needs her to admit she loves him in a mere ten days. She on the other hand, will sufficate every inch of his manhood until he'll screams, "Go away! I've got a restraining order you pycho stepford wife from hell" also within ten days.

Cupid and his dastardly set of arrows has been spotted in Manhattan though and there may just be a bit of old fashion romance mixed into the bet! Ya think?

Of course the visual appeal of Matthew McConaughey is a decidedly magnetic draw…Face it! He's a manly little studmuffin extravaganza waiting to be lightly heated in the microwave of lust - have a dollop of butter spread all over him- then slowly devoured. He's a purrfectly scrumptious Texan appetizer! See Frailty for a pinch of Matt's darker side…

Mz. Hudson is just precious. She's a likable beauty just like her mom. Unlike say, snooty not- fit- to- glance- her- way Elizabeth Hurley, Kate seems approachable and cool. They have a scene of the waif wolfing down a hamburger like a big burly truck driver that'll make you giggle out loud. See that's what girls do. Even tiny girls…with pinkies up of course. Kate knows comedy - it must be in the DNA…

It's a screwball script well written, even if it's Quirky Romance Film 101. Sometimes that's just what you need - silly giggles at the movies. And thanks to a cast that embraces that silliness and delivers each scene in a delightfully commitment way, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days is one of the cutest romantic comedies I've ever seen! Enjoy.

Snack Recommendation: A big oozing hamburger heavy on the onions!
