A romantically challenged morning show producer is reluctantly embroiled in a series of outrageous tests by her chauvinistic correspondent to prove his theories on relationships and help ... See full summary »
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.
Occasionally in the 15 years since summer camp, Adam and Emma cross paths. When he discovers that an ex-girlfriend is living with his dad, he gets drunk, calls every woman in his cell phone contact list, and ends up passed out naked in her living room. By this time, she's a medical resident in L.A. and he's a gopher on a "Glee"-like TV series, hoping to be a writer. She guards her emotions (calling her father's funeral "a thing"), so after a quick shag in the moments she has before leaving for the hospital, she asks if he wants a no-strings-attached, sex-only relationship, without romance or complications. A prescription for fun or for disaster? Written by
Natalie Portman originally entered the project as a producer and not as a member of the cast. She remained an executive producer after being cast as Emma. The film is credited as a production of Portman's production company, Handsomecharlie Films. See more »
Adam flinches and turns his head well before Emma slaps him in the emergency room. Not only was the slap unexpected, but Adam had taken painkillers, so he should have been far less likely to react that quickly. See more »
You know, I don't want to freak you out, but I'd love to hang out with you in the daytime sometime.
It's not really possible. I have no time. I work 80 hours a week doing 36-hour shifts. What I need is someone who's going to be in my bed in 2 a.m. who I don't have to lie to or eat breakfast with.
I hate breakfast.
Do you want to do this?
Use each other for sex at all hours of the day and night, nothing else.
[soundbite of music]
Yeah, I could do that.

What an awful, non-funny, crass, stupid movie. Don't waste your money...and if you get the chance to see it for free...don't waste your time. It's that bad.
I will admit I am not a big fan of Ashton Kutcher, but surprisingly the quality of this movie had already hit the "stink" level without factoring in Ashton's acting skills. We can start with the writing, the directing, the story, etc....just pitiful.
Honestly, I would have had a more enjoyable two hours if I had walked out after the first fifteen minutes...and it wasn't just me...my date hated it as well. But I had indulged in an order of nachos and didn't want to drag those with me out into the cold, cold, Chicago night so we stayed and finished our snacks and then stayed just hoping against hope that there would be some redeemable quality to the movie..... alas.....there wasn't.
