Andie Anderson (Kate Hudson 飾)是一個為《Composure》雜誌工作的專欄作家，一個“How
的朋友Michelle (Kathryn Hahn 飾) 的幾次戀愛，幾次失敗之後，現在又一次經歷男友與她分手。從她的朋友經歷中她獲得了靈感。Andie
Andie Anderson (Kate Hudson) is a writer who works for a magazine called
Composure as the "How to..." girl. She is bored and wishes she could write more
about important things, such as politics, economics, religion, poverty; stuff
she actually cares about. She soon finds herself writing an article called "How
to Lose a Guy in 10 Days". The idea comes about when Andie's friend, Michelle
(Kathryn Hahn), experiences a minor breakdown after yet another break-up. Using
her friend as inspiration, Andie reveals how she will actually start dating a
guy and drive him away but "only using the classic mistakes women make".
At the same time, advertising executive Benjamin Barry (Matthew McConaughey)
is striving for a pitch to advertise diamonds. When they question Ben's
knowledge about love, Ben bets he could make any woman fall in love with him if
he wanted to. If he can make any woman fall in love with him before the upcoming
company ball, in just 10 days, he can head the advertising for the new diamond
Ben's rival co-workers, Judy Spears (Michael Michele) and Judy Green (Shalom
Harlow), who were at Composure magazine earlier and are aware of Andie's new
assignment, conspire to have Andie and Ben meet that night and start their
quests. Fortunately, that night Andie and Ben happen to be in the same place and
as Judy and Judy refer to Andie as "the blonde with the pretty smile", Ben
thinks it is a done deal.
Neither Andie nor Ben reveals their true intentions. Andie works hard to make
Ben break up with her in order to complete her article. However, Ben continues
to stick around in hopes of making her fall in love with him. Andie goes on to
get Ben knocked out at a chick flick, rapidly moves her things into his
apartment, acts overly possessive and sensitive at all times, ruins boys' poker
night for him and his friends, and takes him to a Celine Dion concert when he
was under the assumption he was going to see a New York Knicks basketball game.
Ben stays with her despite everything, and after coming very close to breaking
up they attend couples counseling, led by Andie's friend Michelle. They agree,
as a solution to their "problems", to visit Ben's family in Staten Island for
the weekend. While holidaying together, Ben and Andie begin to form a genuine
bond, playing card games with the family, learning to ride Ben's motorcycle.
Upon arrival home Ben even refers to Andie as "his girlfriend".
Andie tries to explain to boss Lana (Bebe Neuwirth) that she cannot continue
writing and publishing this article as she has "really got to know this guy",
but Lana remains insistent upon it. Around the same time, Andie and Ben go to
the company ball together where Ben's boss, Phillip (Robert Klein), meets Andie
and tells Ben that he "met her, she loves you, you win". Seeing Ben's good news,
Judy and Judy are instantly envious and set about to ruin it for their
co-worker. They tell his close colleagues, Tony (Adam Goldberg) and Thayer
(Thomas Lennon), Andie knew about the bet all along and was playing along to
help Ben win. Almost instantly, Tony and Thayer rush to Andie's side and beg her
to keep quiet, when they do not realize she is still blissfully unaware. Almost
simultaneously, Lana—who is unaware of Ben's role in Andie's "How To"
article—reveals Andie's true intentions to Ben.
Upon learning of Ben's bet, Andie attempts to humiliate Ben by getting on
stage and telling all he has prepared a "special treat": to sing a song. In an
attempt to leave, Ben reveals they have prepared a "duet" and instructs his
friends not to let her leave the room. They go on to sing a poor version of
Carly Simon's "You're So Vain", which they describe as "one of their personal
They go their separate ways before Ben is shown Andie's article and encouraged
to read it. She explains in it how she "lost the one person she ever fell for",
and when he hears she quit her job at Composure and is on her way to Washington,
D.C. for an interview, he chases her taxi and stops her. Once he accuses her of
running away, they reveal their true feelings for each other and the film ends
with Ben instructing the taxi driver to return Andie's belongings to her home,
and then they kiss.
