How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days is a 2003 romantic comedy film directed by Donald Petrie and starring Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey. The movie centers around two characters, Benjamin Barry and Andie Anderson. Andie is an advice columnist who wants to write a risky column about what women shouldn’t do in a relationship. So, her plan is to find a guy and make him break up with her in no more than 10 days. Meanwhile, Benjamin is an advertising executive competing with two female co-workers for a major campaign for a diamond merchant. To win the campaign, he bets that he can make a woman fall in love with him in 10 days. His co-workers choose Andie and the games begin. She is trying to lose him and he is staying with her to win the bet.

Here's an example of how the plot unfolds: Andie meets Ben at a bar and they hit it off. She then proceeds to call him every day, even when he's at work. She also takes him to see a Celine Dion concert, which he hates. She redecorates his apartment with pink items and makes him watch chick flicks. She also takes him to meet her parents who are named "Mr. Anderson" and "Mrs. Anderson" (just like in The Matrix). Ben tries to get Andie to fall in love with him by taking her on romantic dates and buying her expensive jewelry.
