    Kate Hudson's smugface is really not my cuppa tea, but she is stunning in that gold number (and in those giant Ann Taylor Loft banners at the mall). The movie isn't as annoying as I remember, but much of it is Hudson doing embarrassing, stereotypical stuff. There's some real heart when Andie meets Ben's kooky but loveable family. Then the big reveal is kinda argumentative for no reason. Andie's all hurt that she was just a bet, but she was using Ben too, so it's just a ham-handed unraveling for dramatic purposes.

    Not my kind of thing. You want to know why romantic comedies now-a-days aren't that good. First off, they are a mass up of two genres. Those genres being comedy and romance. Romances aren't as good as they used to be. The classic romances had it all, great story. They mostly focus on sex now. Comedies today aren't what they used to be either. You mostly have pure slap stick and crud humor. So you mix them up in this day and you mostly get garbage. Not all romantic comedies are garbage but the majority are. If they went back to their roots then all will be good. Getting to the artistic aspect of a review. This had an inadequate story line and plot build up. The jokes weren't backed up by the plot. That's what I hate about comedies. When the jokes are just thrown in their for comedic effect. The acting was decent but I did notice that the body articulation was sterile. The writing was decent as well. Nothing too special but the ladies sure would have liked the love story. The production values where good. They are the best part of the film. Good production always seems to be the only good aspect of romantic comedies. I actually was not to faun by the casting. They did not look like a good couple. I recommend this for those that like romantic comedies.

    How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days is yet another awful romantic comedy. I thought the film had a promising start, but the film falls apart. Matthew McConaughey is a pretty good actor, but I think he's wrecking his career with all the bad rom-coms that he's starred in. He's just not romantic comedy material. This film is pretty sloppy in the way its comedic elements flowed. I laughed a few times, I'll admit, but after the credits roll, I realized that despite a promising start, this romantic comedy is simply just like the others, and it becomes predictable by the second half. One day I would like to see a romantic comedy that really differs from all the other ones, and doesn't use any predictable derivative cliché to create its "story". Though this film had a few funny bits, the film wasn't good, and in the end suffered the same fate as so many other romantic comedies. This is an awful film that is absolute misfire for a romantic comedy. The cast is terrible here and with a poor script, poor directing, it ensures that How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days is a poorly made film with nothing to offer. A boring, predictable film with minor laughs doesn't do anything for the film, and the script is so bad that it just sinks this film even further. A poorly made film that just doesn't cut it. This film is garbage and everyone involved in this film should be ashamed of themselves. As far as scrapping the bottom of the barrel of clichéd ideas, this film hits the mark, and ends up being a terrible film in the process.

    The direction is bad, the script is worse and not even the actors can save this film from being lost in the first 10 seconds.
