Andie Anderson (Kate Hudson) works at a women’s magazine in New York City, and one day she decides to write an article about how to lose a guy in 10 days. Her plan is to find a guy and make some classic mistakes most women make when they start dating someone.
At the same time, advertising executive Benjamin “Ben” Berry (Matthew McConaughey) makes a bet at work that he can make a woman fall in love with him within 10 days. If he succeeds, his boss will let him lead the advertising for a new diamond company. Since both lead characters live in New York, many of the filming locations from the movie can be seen on the NYC TV & Movie Tour.
Thanks to Ben’s rival co-workers, who have already heard about Andie’s upcoming article, they decide to set up Ben to have him test his theory on her.
