How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days is a 2003 romantic comedy film, directed by Donald Petrie, starring Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey. It is based on a short cartoon book of the same name by Michele Alexander and Jeannie Long. Andie Anderson (Kate Hudson) is a journalist, who works for a magazine called Composure as the "How to..." woman. She is bored and wishes she could write more about important things, such as politics, economics, religion, poverty; stuff she cares about. She soon finds herself writing an article called "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days". Andie tells her boss that, to write more freely and creatively, she will date a man and do all the wrong things women tend to do in relationships, and record her experiences for the article. At the same time, advertising executive Benjamin Barry (Matthew McConaughey) tells his boss that he can make any woman fall in love with him in just ten days. To prove it, he will find a woman and bring her to the upcoming company ball as his date. If he succeeds, he gets to be in charge of the advertising for the new diamond company account otherwise headed by his boss. Ben's rival co-workers, Judy Spears and Judy Green, who were at Composure

    In a tweet: You’ll think about all the quirky experiences you’ve ever had on dates with this witty, energetic, and gratifying film that's good for guys and gals. Overall, this show is a great chick flick, that's indeed what it is. Guys and gals can relate to it. It has some sexual content but that's not what you remember after you've seen it. The strong points are the quirky things they do to each other that you can't imagine having done to you. There is one scene (card game scene) that uses most of the profanity in the show. It's dumb that they had to put the swearing in there but overall it's a fun show.

    There is a lot of sexual innuendo and some profanity in this film. Overall though I thought it was humorous, fun and enjoyable. It is one of the better romantic comedies on the market for its time in my opinion, but not up to the level of Sleepless in Seattle.

    I actually liked this movie, but I think it gave my girlfriend at the time ideas on how to dump me, and we even watched it together while we were dating...but now she is my wife haha take that!

    I hate chick flicks. But with that being said, this is the only chick flick I will watch over and over again and even bought. This is a funny movie which shows some of the common mistakes (most of them exaggerated) that a lot of girls do on dates.

    Great, hilarious movie! Fantastic chemistry between Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey. Definitely for an older audience. There are a lot of sexual references and a pretty steamy scene in the shower (close your eyes). But this movie is a classic -- worth your time. :)

    LOVE this movie. One of the classic romances that will have you laughing until you cry, and smiling the entire time. Andy Anderson is one of my fave characters. "You let our love fern die?"

    This one is pretty funny in its own predictable way. Sometimes cheesy but entertaining none the less. The coworkers are great and provide a lot of memorable lines. Some of the stunts Hudson pulls are over the top but still provide laughs. The family scene is excellent in spite of the language used. I also really smiled at the inclusion of a fern, yes a fern.

    I would go as far as to say that this is one of the best chick flick movies out there. It's a movie that although it is a chick flick, doesn't lack comedy and entertainment. There are a lot of funny things that this points out about that dating experience that will make you chuckle about your own dating experiences. Definitely worth your time.

    It was cute for a date movie, and if you are on a date it might be worth your time, but as far as movies go, there are a lot more you can better spend your time watching.

    Just fun. Just enjoy. This movie buts the fun back into dating, which can be frustrating sometimes. Pure fantasy.

    Perfect for teens and above. It is such a funny and heartwarming film. The only downside is the language that comes across in the movie that could have been done without. You will not be disappointed with either of these actors or storyline.

    This is the movie you watch with your girlfriends when you're feeling a little extra giggly. Don't expect a lot of depth but a few funny moments.

    This movie was entertaining to watch, but I didn't understand the attraction between the two characters. Believing the romance was a stretch. Also, parents, be aware that the couple, who hardly likes each other and has no committal relationship, have sex after knowing each other for just a few days.

    Not my favorite movie by any means. It is a movie for women I believe. It can be funny at times, but just made me frustrated watching it.

    The efforts to infuse depth into these shallow characters were laughable - everyone in the movie could have died and I would have been unaffected emotionally.

    Hilarious! Adult dating themes that kids might not get. The only "sex" scene does not show anything.

    Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey draw you right in; great casting. Definitely for a little older audience, given some of the sexual references.

    Funny movie! There are some more adult topics and there is a scene where they play the card game B.S.

    If you ever been sick of the game of dating, this is a great movie to watch. Full of laughs about dating and yet still a happy ending. Great movie!

    One show I've never gotten tired of. Definitely an adult show, quite a few sexual references, but still quite a funny show.

    This one is a classic that I have watched over and over again. It is for an older crowd, but parents can use their own judgement for their children.
