Consensus: Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson are charming together, but they can't overcome How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days' silly premise and predictable script.

Alexander Walker
London Evening Standard

She plays the ninny and the harpy, the baby doll and the ball breaker. It's Kate Hudson's film all right, but this actress is a cold squeeze, not well photographed either, and has the worst hairdo on the East Side.

Both lovers are duplicitous creeps -- in a perverse way they're made for each other.

Debbie Lynn Elias
Behind The Lens

Starring the exuberantly effervescent Kate Hudson and one of Hollywood's sexiest and most eligible bachelors, Matthew McConaughey, How to Lose has all the makings of a classic romantic comedy.

Fun, funny, Chick Lit-style chortler.

Peter Travers
Rolling Stone

When a chick flick goes wrong -- and this one hits a dead end in hell -- it's a wipeout.

Felix Vasquez Jr.
Cinema Crazed

Along with a terrible ending, there's also a numerous range of plot inconsistencies that insult the audiences intelligence.

More an exercise in how to lose an audience in 10 minutes.

Richard Roeper
Ebert & Roeper

This tortured premise to get them together and the things they go through, every minute of it just lies flat on the screen.

Kevin Carr
7M Pictures

The biggest problem I had with this film was the set-up and premise. It works on paper, but most of the movie is spent with the characters being simply awful.

Hudson and McConaughey have chemistry together but the plot is not exactly the best and basically falls short like in most rom-coms.

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days is yet another awful romantic comedy. I thought the film had a promising start, but the film falls apart. Matthew McConaughey is a… More

For the life of me, I can't even remember why I ever saw this in the first place, especially since I'm not big on this sort of thing to begin with.… More

It was predictable but I found this quite entertaining as well.

Kate Hudson's smugface is really not my cuppa tea, but she is stunning in that gold number (and in those giant Ann Taylor Loft banners at the mall). The… More
