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
During Adam's birthday scene as he was blowing out candles, there is a Creation of Adam painting on the cake. That was Kevin Kline's idea to add it onto the cake. See more »
When Emma is carrying the two cups of coffee to the car after running into Adam, she carries them like they are empty, not accounting for the coffee inside. If there was coffee in either one, it would have spilled everywhere. See more »

Decent acting, sure. But the core, dialog and development offers very little to anyone older than 16.
The movie has one or two memorable moments. The rest was just bubble gum.
Given the outset, adding any delightful, surprising, thought provoking or interesting situations would be hard, but very possible. Though I obviously didn't watch this movie for depth, but when the brain is missing I do expect the heart to be compensated. This movie just simply failed to deliver.
If asked I wouldn't be able to pinpoint any particular reason to recommend this movie.
