We had four DVDs sitting around being ignored for at least three months (during the peak of my reality TV season), and this movie was one of the forgotten. I couldn't even remember whether or not I had actually watched How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days or if I had just shuffled the disc laying around so long, and even though I could recall the previews, I somehow half-heartedly convinced myself that I'd already seen the movie. I returned it, unsure. Then I rented it again, about a week later, to satisfy my curiosity, and to avoid missing out on a good chick flick. It's better to be safe than sorry, I thought.
After about ten minutes into the movie, I realized that I have seen the whole thing recently, and yet continued to watch. I still can't believe that I saw it within the last few months and forgot all about it. It must have been late and I must have been extremely tired. Either that or the movie was so forgetful and I was asking myself why would I want to watch it again. I was by myself and Kelly was busy studying Chinese, so I continued.
Speaking of diminishing attention, if you are still reading this and want to know how I liked it, let me just say that it falls perfectly into the category of a standard chick flick (standards not necessarily aligned with mine), and I did enjoy it, again. I was cracking up in parts of it when the character, Andie Andrews, was doing everything she could to scare away the guy, played by none other than the regular chick-flick gigolo, Matthew McConaughey, who always lands these types of roles. But I was a sucker for his sweet talkin' once again, as was Andie, played by the irresistible Kate Hudson. Even if it didn't leave a lasting impression the first time, I'm going to give this an 8 out of 10. I'd watch it again. I'm the number one fan of happily ever after endings.
