When Ben is shown the article that Andie wrote, the style and format changes. When the article is first seen, it is completely formatted in blue. 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 »
For the NBA Finals to reach 7 games, it would take at least two weeks. Not all 7 games would be played in the span of 12 days as in the movie. Ben plans the date for Game 7 for "Day 13" and the couple go to Game 1 on "Day 2". 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.

Funny and Charming
Andie(Kate Hudson) is a beautiful young woman that works for a women's magazine called Composure and for her next article, Andie has to write about how to lose a guy in 10 days. Ben(Matthew McConaughey)is an advertising executive and he makes a bet with his friends that he can make a woman fall in love with him in 10 days. Of course, these two meet each other and the scam is on. Andie will do anything to lose a guy and Ben will do anything to win a girl, what they don't expect is that the two of them will fall in love with each other. I thought this was a funny and charming romantic comedy. The lovely Kate Hudson gives a great performance, she was absolutely hilarious! I would give How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days 7/10.
