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.
Carson shines in his role here. He is part stylist & part therapist. To say these women are dissatisfied with their looks before he works with them is a gross understatement. Many of these women are paralyzed by their misery over how they perceive themselves. Carson does not just get them into better clothes & hair styles, he makes tremendous progress with them in getting them to see the positives about their physicality. Although this is a remake of the English show of the same name & it seems I usually prefer the original to a show's remake, Carson's version is much better. He is so funny and warm and just loving toward these women. Many of these ladies are heavy and just about hate themselves because of that. In our society, that is no surprise. Somehow in the USA we all want to eat way more than need, but we all demand that we all look hot. Not usually possible. One of my favorite episodes was with the absolutely gorgeous woman who was so ashamed of her looks that she dressed only in black & wore sunglasses everyday all day. By the end of the show Carson had given away all her sunglasses, she was wearing beautiful colorful clothes, was smiling nonstop, and seemed so relaxed to have that burden off her back. I hope there are more episodes coming.
