How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days is, as expected, utterly predictable. It is exceedingly charming and witty in its predictability, though. Kate Hudson plays the perfect modern woman, gorgeous, independent, spunky, yet ladylike. Matthew McConaughey fills out his typical role as a dashing and adorable hunk, boyish, but sweet inside.
At least until the end.
I thought I knew how they were going to wrap the story up. I figured that, after falling in love, she would convince herself that she had to make a last ditch effort to wrap up her story. That would be stupid though, since she didn’t need to to actually go through with it in order to write her story. Instead, they went with the classic situation where each party finds out about the other’s deception at the last minute. (Yeah, I know, I should have seen that coming.) Somehow, it wasn’t quite what I expected. It was very funny and lovely; everything that a romantic comedy should be.
