The term 'chick flick' is a divisive one and scares away half of the population before they even see a film. I guess, I just have to accept that this is a world based on opposites (good/evil, male/female, salt/pepper, etc.) and leave it at that. That being said…this DVD collection are for those evenings where you have your girlfriends over, open a bottle of wine and are in the mood to watch several romantic comedies back to back. But, hey, you guys who are interested in watching films that will give you some insight into 'what women want' (pun intended) then pull your drapes closed, crack open a 6-pack and watch five films that women flocked to.
How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days:
Director: Donald Petrie
Composure magazine's 'How To' girl is Andie Anderson (Kate Hudson – Almost Famous, Raising Helen) and her latest assignment is to write a story about all the wrong things that women do in relationships. She will do all these things in order to drive a man out of her life in 10 days.
As chance would have it, smooth talking advertising whiz Benjamin Barry (Matthew McConaughey – Sahara, Failure to Launch) has made a deal at work that if he can get any woman of their choice to fall in love with him in 10 days then he gets to run the primo diamond account the agency is up for.
It is a twist on the battle of the sexes and let the games begin!
