How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003, USA/GER) C-116m. ** D: Donald Petrie. Starring Kate Hudson, Matthew McConaughey, Kathryn Hahn, Annie Parisse, Adam Goldberg, Thomas Lennon, Michael Michele, Bebe Neuwirth. Romantic comedy about two journalists Hudson and McConaughey, who hook up for different reasons: He wants to prove that he can make any girl fall in love with him in 10 days, she is out to dump one within that period. Likability of the stars is stretched too much at times in this contrivance.
