Dr. Tom SnyderHOW TO LOSE A
GUY IN 10 DAYS is a light,
entertaining romantic comedy
that, because of foul language
and sexual content, is not
appropriate for children.The
movie stars Kate Hudson,
actress Goldie Hawn's
daughter, and Matthew
McConaughey as a magazine
writer and an advertising
executive in New York City.
Hudson plays Andie Anderson,
the "How To" writer for a
women's magazine. To help out
her friend on the magazine,
who just lost her boyfriend,
Andie pitches an article to
her editor on "How to Lose a
Guy in 10 Days." She will pick
out a guy and try irritating
him so much that he leaves the
relationship.McConaughey plays
Benjamin Barry, who's anxious
to get out of the rut of doing
advertising for beer and other
men's products, and wants to
make the pitch for his
company's account with a huge
diamond company. Two women at
Ben's firm, however, also want
the diamond account. When they
visit Andie's magazine, they
learn about Andie's story.
Back at their company, they
convince the boss to make Ben
prove that he can sell a
"feminine" account like
diamonds. Ben must prove that
he can make a woman fall in
love with him in 10 days. They
arrange things so that Andie
is the girl that Ben picks as
part of the bet.The stage is
now set for lots of comical
high jinx. Andie applies all
the "Don'ts" that drive men
away, while Ben has to take
everything she dishes out to
prove that he's the world's
most sensitive, loving,
understanding guy. Love lies
right around the corner,
however.HOW TO LOSE A GUY IN
10 DAYS is lightly amusing and
breezy, despite its two-hour
length. The movie contains
plenty of foul language,
however, and brief sexual
content. Also, though truth
wins out in the end and is
upheld as a value, there's a
lot of lying and subterfuge
before that happens. Because
of its negative content, HOW
TO LOSE A GUY IN 10 DAYS is
not appropriate for children
and deserves a caution for
teenagers and adults,
especially those with
Christian values.Please
