Ugly Moment #1 and Aww Moment #7… How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days
This is definitely one of my favorite romantic comedies. It’s hilarious and painful, and sweet–all the fabulousness we expect from romantic comedies, not to mention it has Matthew McConaughey in it who is seriously dreamy. Here’s the premise: Andie Anderson is a writer for the “How to” column at Composure magazine. She is assigned to write an article entitled “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.” In order to do this, she must find a guy to “lose.” Enter Benjamin Barry, a successful advertising executive who is seeking a very large account. To get this account, he must prove he can make any woman fall in love with him in 10 days. The hilarity of Andie trying to “lose” Ben and Ben trying to make Andie fall in love with him is at epic proportions in this comedy.
*****Spoiler***** Of course, they fall in love with each other in the process. When Andie finds out that she was part of a bet, she is incredibly hurt since she has admitted to herself and Ben’s boss that she does, in fact, love Ben. Ben finds out that he was the central figure in her article and is equally hurt as seen in the following clip:
