I watched this film last year and have watched it many, many times since! It still never fails to make me laugh out loud everytime! it truly is a romantic comedy masterpiece!!! The main actors, Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey have amazing on-screen chemistry making the whole story just flow so much better.

The film's basically about a magazine columnest, Andie Anderson (Hudson) who agrees to write a first hand account on what it takes to drive a man out of your life in exactly 10 days. At the same time eligible ad agency bachelor, Benjamin Barry (McConaughey), excepts a high stakes bet that he can lure any woman into falling head over heels in love with him - also in 10 days! As both meet the cunning Andie uses everything in her power to try and drive Ben away, by using every trick in the book that guys hate, such as baby language, being clingy and frequent mood changes.

This film is absolutely brilliant from start to finish. Hudson and McConaughey both play their parts very well, with depth and comedy. The supporting cast also portray their character's brilliantly! The film is funny, full of heart and with an entertaining and truly different storyline - making 'How to lose a guy in 10 days' truly one of greatest romantic comedy's of it's day!

I would recommend it to anyone - even the lads! One not to be missed!

I am male, and would like to go on the record and say that I found this film hilarious. If you enjoy romantic comedies then this film will not disapoint, whatever your sex. It is my favourite of the genre. Also, there's no doubt about it: Kate Hudson is easy on the eyes for us gents! I would imagine Matthew McConaughey makes a pretty picture for the girls too!

This movie is about this young cool lady (HUDSON), who is part of a woman's weekly magazine and her collame is How to!
One of her subjects is o her rescent collmns is How to lose a guy i 10 days!
One night she meets this guy and she uses these anoying tricks to drive him away. One night on the 7th night they have a argument and they are about to breck up until he mentions cuples theopy. She relizes that he is special and she falls in love with him. However his scandal is that he has said to his boss that he can make any lady fall in love with him.
I loved this movie and my mum and me watch it all the time. The perfect CHICKFLICK EVER!
A bit corny but fun.

I've got to admit, I enjoy certain romantic comedies. They're predictable as can be, but if done well, they can be fun. I'd always been curious about How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days. Despite itself, I found myself drawn into the story. Unfortunately, the story does help sink the film.

Andie Anderson (Kate Hudson) works for "Composure" magazine as their "How to" columnist. Her real passion is meaty stories about politics and world problems, but since she has to appeal to the magazine's audience, she writes about relationship problems and shoes. Her latest assignment is an article about all the things women do to drive their man away. And she has to get first hand research for the piece, so she has to find a guy, hook him, and then turn into all the things that drive men away.

Meanwhile, Benjamin Barry (Matthew McConaughey) is fighting with some co-workers for the new diamond account his advertising firm has just landed. He knows he can do an outstanding job, but they say since he never spends more than one night with a woman, he doesn't know them. To prove he knows women, he agrees to a bet - he can bring any woman they chose to a company event in 10 days, and she will be completely in love with him.

The co-workers, knowing about Andie's assignment, set the two of them up. And that first night, everything goes well. But as Andie descends into psycho girlfriend mode, Benjamin begins to question whether he can last the whole 10 days. Who will win the bet? Will Andie and Benjamin ever speak to each other again when it is over?

My main problem with this movie involves the story. For starters, why does Andie need to lose a guy first hand? The entire article comes about because a friend and co-worker has lost yet another boyfriend.

.....this film is the funniest film I've seen in a long time and is up there with 'Meet the Parents' and ' There's Someting About Mary'. Although this is a 'girly' film, my husband watched it and found it nearly as funny as I did. I first saw this film inflight, and loved it so much, I watched it on the return journey as well, which annoyed some of the other passengers as I was laughing out loud before the gags came, just knowing what was going to happen. This really is a must see film.....

I've just this second come to the end of the movie, and I just want to watch it again. It was absolutely amazing. Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey have chemistry that casting agents only dream about. The film was funny, touching and JUST UNMISSABLE!

She (Kate Hudson) is writing articles in a glamour magazine. She is tiring to get autonomy in her work. To do this she will right an article on "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days"

He (Matthew McConaughey) is an advertising agent. To obtain an exclusive with the Diamond industry he has to prove he can make any woman fall in love with him within (you guessed it the same ten days)

Due to circumstances and a little mischief from advertising rivals, the two are thrown together. What results is known; how they get there is the fun part of the movie.

There is nothing exceptional about this movie. Yet it is well done with the correct formula timing and actors.

The Skeleton Key ~ Kate Hudson
