How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days Reviews
Kate Hudson played Andie Anderson a writer with great ambition who works for a women's magazine who has to write an article on how to lose a guy in 10 days.
The slight problem is the guy she has picked is trying to win a pitch at his job and he has to make a girl fall in love with him in 10 days.
The movie has me laughing from start to end. It is very well written and you get to see the games each plays. Will Andie get her perfect article? Will Benjamin get his pitch for the delauer diamond company? Watch and you will find out :)
The acting was all right, but halfway through the film I forgot who was doing what or for what reason. Found the premise of the story a bit cheezy.
If there is nothing else on TV might as well watch this.
(I didnt understand, if she wanted to write about politics and religion why was she working for a fashion magazine? )
You have to thank my wife for the string of movies here that are either Romantic Comedies or Dramas because those are the movies that she enjoys the most. Benjamin Barry is an advertising executive who must compete with two female co-workers to win pitching to a diamond merchant. He makes a bet with his competitors that if he can make any girl fall in love with him in 10 days that he gets to pitch to the company and they agree. Then there is Andie Anderson who, to try and expand her writing career to write more meaningful stories, is writing a story on how to lose a guy in 10 days. They both go to a nearby bar to find their so called "victim" and with each having their own bet to win, will either party be able to do it?
The scene where Andie meets Ben's family and they play a game of B.S. is my favorite. I enjoyed this scene so much because I loved the interaction of everyone and how they made her feel like part of the family. I also enjoyed this because its one of the first times in the movie that you can tell that she is really falling for him.
I really enjoyed watching Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson work together on this film because at the beginning you could tell that they were just two people trying to win a bet. Then as the movie went on you could tell that they were losing site of the bet as their feelings got in the way. They worked well together which just made it that much more believable and I enjoyed that.
Overall I would give this movie a B+. The chemistry of actors can really make or break a film and I feel like for this film it worked. They really worked well together and when Kate Hudson was at her craziest Matthew McConaughey reactions were what I believe any guy would do in that situation. If you have a weekend that you can't decide what to watch go check this out.
