Benjamin Barry is an advertising executive competing with two female co-workers for a major campaign for a diamond merchant. He cuts a deal with his competitors that the account is his if he can make a woman of their choice fall in love with him in 10 days. In comes Andie Anderson who, in turn, is writing a story on how to lose a guy in 10 days as a bet with her boss to be allowed to write more substantial stories. With a hidden agenda in each camp, will either party be able to complete their mission?Written by

Much of the scene where Andie crashes Ben's "boys night" was improvised. Kate Hudson had the idea to toss the platter of veggies at the guys seated at the poker table. Donald Petrie, the director, knew she was going to do this but the actors in the scene were truly surprised. See more »
Michelle, pretending to be a therapist, wears large glasses which reflect a whole crew of people standing in front of drawn curtains while the scene is being filmed. See more »
"And only then will the people of Tajikistan know true and lasting peace." Andie, it's brilliant. It's really moving. But it's never going to appear in Composure Magazine.

Not too Shabby
OK. Im a guy. I hate chick flicks. Ms congeniality, 2 weeks notice, legally blonde.....I HATE THEM ALL! i wasnt to optimistic about seeing this movie, but of course i heard it was good from some girlfriends of mine.
i am not a fan of matthew mcghauney(?). all his movies his characters are the same. but in this movie, his same old character actually fit him. I thought he portrayed his character very well. he was actually quite funny. And then theres little Kate Hudson. Not only is she gorgeous, but at times, i swear i was watching Goldie Hawn. she was so annoyingly funny in this movie, that you actually cringed when she did some of her horrible tricks. I also thought there chrmistry was perfect.
But the UNSUNG HEROES of this movie are DEFINETLY McConaughy's best friends/coworkers. Adam Goldberg is HILARIOUS with his dry sense of humor, and if you listen carefully to each of his lines, you will laugh your #@! off. He and Thomas Lennon are two KEY roles in this movie.
Overall, BEING A GUY, i give this movie a 7/10. Adam Golberg saved this movie.............
