Though a slight departure from the whimsical weirdo you secretly fell in love with in Almost Famous, Kate Hudson's leading role as magazine staffer Andie Anderson proves almost equally endearing.

After getting going on a feature titled—you guessed it—"How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days," which involves wooing a guy only to reenact the classic no-nos that send men packing, Anderson has the weird luck of selecting a cocky ad exec (Matthew McConaughey) who has a simultaneous bet running that he can make any chick fall in love with him. As both are forced to see their "assignments" through, hilarity ensues, and chances are you'll be reminded of more than a few exes that'll make you feel great about opting for singledom.
