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.
When her brother decides to ditch for a couple weeks, Viola heads over to his elite boarding school, disguised as him, and proceeds to fall for one of his soccer teammates, and soon learns she's not the only one with romantic troubles.
Two things about Jane: she never says no to her friends (she's been a bridesmaid 27 times and selflessly plans friends' weddings), and she's in love with her boss, George, nurturing dreams of a lovely, romantic wedding of her own. She meets Kevin, a cynical writer who finds her attractive, and that same week her flirtatious younger sister Tess comes to town. Jane silently watches George fall for Tess, a manipulative pretender. Worse, Jane may be called upon to plan their wedding. Meanwhile, Kevin tries to get Jane's attention and has an idea that may advance his career. Can Jane uncork her feelings?Written by
Katherine Heigl previously played another character who was in love with a man named George. Her character, Izzie Stevens, on the television series Grey's Anatomy (2005), was briefly in love with the character George O'Malley. See more »
When Jane & Kevin first go into the bar to get out of the rain, they are both soaking wet. Just a few minutes later when they get up to sing, they are mostly dry. Even in a hot, dry bar, they couldn't have dried out that fast. See more »
Wait, what are those?
Are they bridesmaid dresses?
This is none of your business!
Oh... good God. What, you kept them all? You have a whole closetful? Why?
I have a lot of friends and I like to keep them.
Right. Well, that makes complete sense because they're... *beautiful*.
Some of them are not that bad.

I watch Grey's Anatomy every week so I guess I'm a bit of a Katherine Hiegel fan. I liked her in Knocked Up and she's decent in this film. In fact the whole cast is quite good. I just felt like I had seen this film before somewhere (or parts of it in different films). I guess I watched it because I'm getting married soon so I wanted to see the dresses in the film (and there are some amazing ones and some interesting ones for those who care about dresses). The audience didn't seem to laugh as much as I thought they would. This is not the same kind of film as Knocked Up and maybe people were expecting that. Otherwise, its a decent Tuesday-night date movie.
