How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days | 2003 | PG-13 | - 4.2.4

Matthew McConaughey stars as a charmer who bets his friends that he can make a woman fall in love with him in 10 days. However, the girl he picks (Kate Hudson) has her own ulterior motives for dating him and tries to get rid of him immediately. While they both begin to wonder if their relationship is worth the trouble, they also start to genuinely fall in love. Also with Adam Goldberg, Thomas Lennon and Michael Michele. [1:50]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - A man and woman kiss, he removes her shirt, she removes his shirt, we hear his pants unbuckle and they get into a shower together while still kissing (we see their bare shoulders). A woman opens a man's shirt and kisses his bare chest and she speaks to him in sexually suggestive terms. A woman kisses a man, then he kisses her, then they kiss a few more times, and lie back on a bed kissing (they do not have sex). A woman kisses a man frantically and hugs him. A man and a woman kiss romantically several times. A woman lies on a bed and invites a man to join her. A man rubs his head on a woman's clothed chest and breast. An elderly woman flirts with a younger man a few times, and a man and a woman flirt in several other scenes. We see a man's bare chest when he removes his short to change (three women watch him with interest). Women wear tight-fitting outfits throughout the movie; some reveal bare backs, some are low-cut in front revealing cleavage, some are short revealing bare abdomens, and some reveal bare thighs. There are many discussions of relationships and sex. We see many feminine hygiene products in a medicine cabinet. A man describes (and illustrates with gestures) having lost his arousal when a woman names his private parts with a woman's name.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - Two men argue in a movie theater, one invites the other outside to fight, and one ends up being punched in the face (he lands on the floor and has a bruise on his eye). A man starts to drive through an intersection on a motorcycle and is nearly hit by a bus, he then races and weaves through traffic. A woman starts up a motorcycle and a man slides off the back. A woman throws a plate of vegetables on a table and yells. A dog urinates on a pool table and on a poker table (we see the stream and the puddle). A man blows his nose and a woman looks at what is in the tissue. A man flatulates several times.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
