When we see it from Ben's point of view, the style changes, with a broken love heart taking up the majority of the page. The font also changes. See more »

'How to...' columnist for composure magazine, Andie Anderson (Kate Hudson) agrees to write a first-hand account about what it takes to drive a man out of your life in just 10 days. Eligible bachelor Benjamin Barry (Matthew McConaughey) accepts a high-stakes bet that he can lure any woman into falling in love with him...also in 10 days.
With the couple consistently tying to deceive one another, this turns out to be a pretty funny ride, and the chemistry between Hudson and McConaughey is excellent, which does help to hide the lack of depth in the story.
I've seen better, but it's entertaining enough 6/10
