Battle of the sexes romcom with mature content.

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.

I am just about ready to write off movies in which people make bets about whether they will, or will not, fall in love.

This movie is so intent upon getting cheap laughs and putting the protagonists in uncomfortable situations that it forgets they're supposed to be falling in love.

The results are supposed to be funny, but are instead painful.

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.

The funny stuff at the heart of this film struggles in vain to free itself from a cage made of old romantic-comedy cliches.

This tortured premise to get them together and the things they go through, every minute of it just lies flat on the screen.

Virtually everything in the movie is off-pitch.

Overly long and overstuffed, there's just not enough here for a recommendation.

The movie appears to be stocked with nine to five giggly runway models wearing $2,000 outfits, rather than your usual office drudges.

Ladies, here's a hint: you can lose a guy in a lot less than 10 days if you make him watch movies like this one.

The same stuff you've seen in every other run of the mill, artificially sweetened date flick.

Both lovers are duplicitous creeps -- in a perverse way they're made for each other.

...breezy and manipulative...This piece of dating dreck is so sticky sweet and syrupy that one would think they screened Petrie's film at the International House of Pancakes!

Along with a terrible ending, there's also a numerous range of plot inconsistencies that insult the audiences intelligence.
Christopher Null

Not only does 10 Days rely on that old standby of romantic comedies -- "the bet" -- it one-ups the cliché with two bets!

She's selling low self-esteem and an impossible image of femininity and he's selling pieces of rock mined by slave labor and made artificially scarce by evil monopolies. Maybe they really are made for each other.

In Donald Petrie's How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, the setup to the inevitable is contrived to highest level that although you may want to dismiss the film, the performances by the leads are appealing enough for you to have good time enjoying this film.
