Isn't as bad as it looks.

Guys, if the gal in your life insists that you take her to How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, don't panic. If she really wanted to dump you, she'd insist on Deliver Us From Eva.

You not only have to be seriously testosterone- deprived to survive this film without embarrassment, you have to buy a romantic premise so ridiculously contrived that even Dr. Ruth might suspect someone was pulling her little leg.

The movie would have been so much better if it had jumped into its mean-spiritedness with gusto and passion, instead of just splashing around in it halfheartedly.

If the movie provides no new insight into the contrasting behavior of men and women or the perils of postmodern urban dating, falling well shy of the not-too-high standard set by 'Sex and the City' on both fronts, it does have its tart, fizzy moments.

A too-long title is just the first problem for this too-long, misguided, so-called romantic comedy.

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days will test your cuteness tolerance level.
Full Review | Original Score: C-

How to Lose a Guy smoothly satirizes the superficiality of man-hungry women and the soullessness of sex-hungry men.

With its ungainly double-deception premise, How to Lose a Guy feels like it was made out of two connect-the-dots drawings laid haphazardly on top of one another.

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.

This boy-meets-girl movie is a chore to sit through.
