How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003)

Benjamin Barry (Matthew McConaughey) is an advertising executive competing with two female co-workers for a major campaign for a diamond merchant. He cuts a deal with his competitors that the account is his if he can make a woman of their choice fall in love with him in 10 days. In comes Andie Anderson (Kate Hudson) who, in turn, is writing a story on how to lose a guy in 10 days as a bet with her boss to be allowed to write more substantial stories. With a hidden agenda in each camp, will either party be able to complete their mission?

otsoNY Comments: Although several of the shots clearly show Madison Square Gardens, the actual close ups of Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey were shot in Toronto, Canada with the help of the green screens. It is only when Matthew leaves the stadium to buy a drink in the foyer and when him and Kate leave the game are they actually at Madison Square Gardens.
