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

Watch It Now
Both lovers are duplicitous creeps -- in a perverse way they're made for each other.
When a chick flick goes wrong -- and this one hits a dead end in hell -- it's a wipeout.
This tortured premise to get them together and the things they go through, every minute of it just lies flat on the screen.
The biggest problem I had with this film was the set-up and premise. It works on paper, but most of the movie is spent with the characters being simply awful.
If anything, the extras on this deluxe edition of How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days provide further evidence of the links between reading trashy women's magazines and the pursuit of plastic surgery.
...there are a few scenes that are quite charming. It's the in-between stretches that may concern you. (Blu-ray Edition)
...despite reservations about the goofy plot and the cocky characters, the movie proceeds pleasantly enough.
The movie appears to be stocked with nine to five giggly runway models wearing $2,000 outfits, rather than your usual office drudges.

It's hard to believe that this drivel was based on a book... but Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson make it somewhat tolerable at least.
Kate Hudson's impressive comic flair almost saves this implausible romantic comedy.
Offers nothing new to the genre, but for those who like light tales of meet-cute and happily-ever-after, it'll probably be as welcome as a tub of double-fudge ice cream.
