Summary: 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. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

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. ~ Josh Ralske, Rovi
