Benjamin Barry is an advertising executive and ladies' man who, to win a big campaign, bets that he can make a woman fall in love with him in 10 days. Andie Anderson covers the "How To" beat for "Composure" magazine and is assigned to write an article on "How to Lose a Guy in 10 days." They meet in a bar shortly after the bet is made.
Because of his extreme wealth and suave good looks, Edward Lewis could seemingly have any woman he wants, that committed significant other which he needs on his arm at social events to further how he makes his money as a corporate raider. However, he focuses more on his corporate raiding pursuits with his partner in crime, Philip Stuckey, his lawyer of ten years, than those women, with every significant other he's had in his life feeling neglected and eventually leaving him, this fact about which he is just coming to the realization. In Beverly Hills, Edward, in needing that woman on his arms as he and Philip work toward taking over the company owned by the increasingly insolvent James Morse, decides, based on a chance encounter, to hire Hollywood Boulevard hooker Vivian Ward as his escort for the week 24/7. He does so because he wants to have a professional who would be committed to the work, yet not have any commitments to her after the week is over. Beyond their chance encounter, ... Written by
Per Gessle was in a conference room in Los Angeles planning Roxettes promo tour for their Look Sharp!-album when he was asked to write a song for a movie called "$3,000". He declined due to lack of time, but offered them a Christmas song, previously released in Sweden, called It Must Have Been Love (Christmas For The Broken-Hearted). They changed the lyrics to "hard winter's day" instead of previously "hard Christmas day". Director Gary Marshall loved the song so much that reedited the movie so the song would fit in a non-dialogue scene. See more »

No matter what they say, it's all about money. So let's imagine, ladies, that you're a savings and loan officer. Watch - one, two, three; see, you've got it all, and we've got nothing. You've got all four, take a look.

I love this movie...like a Cinderella story for adults, with facts of the real world: a human (and man) fairy godmother for example, a prince, everything!!! About Julia, what can I said? I'm a very big fan, and the way She transforms a prostitute into a princess is phenomenal, She make it real too. Richard Gere was a 80's prince charming, no perfect but with a lot of things that make you said: "I want one for home". Maybe if you are 20 or younger you'll be no identify with the music, but for oldie's: "It must have been love" and "What women do" will take you to your best times! If you like romantic stories, that make you smile, cry and dream, this is the ideal and No.1!!!!
