How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003)
Genre: Comedy, Romance
This is a decent light hearted romantic comedy that is great to watch over and over again 🙂 . This has a sweet and easy to follow narrative that can keep you very entertained even if the ending may be predictable 😛 . I loved the introduction to both main characters and the set up for the two characters to meet (their reasons and idea of the whole film) was very good. Kate Hudson as Andie Anderson and Matthew McConaughey as Ben Barry were both very likable characters 🙂 . I even loved their relationship throughout this and they were quite believable when they were no longer playing (the bet wasn’t the reason the characters met). There are plenty of humorous moments in this which will have you laughing which mostly came from Kate Hudson’s ridiculous “clingy over the top” girlfriend scenes 😀 . Personally, I loved the set and flow of the first half of the movie more. I thought it was captivating, allowed me to see the world the characters were in, their intentions, their friends and plenty of romance and comedy to boot 🙂 . However, when the climax happens (when the bet is revealed) the ending can’t match the first half. Don’t get me wrong, the scene is funny and it ties up the story well. I guess I wanted a more wow ending or perhaps it ended too quickly by the time we got to the climax. Overall, this is a great movie that is fabulous for anyone who loves a decent romantic comedy or girly chick flick 😀 . Enjoy 🙂
I give this film 4.5 Stars out of 5!
