Fun but often cringe-worthy rom-com that stands as a good vehicle for Kate Hudson and typecast her for awhile afterwards. Often funny look at gender stereotypes that often ring true. One always knows where the story will finish up...but its fun getting there.
Kate Hudson does this shitfest with Mr. Shortarms, where she plays a journalist who's at the equivalent of Cosmopolitan where she wants to write about politics, economy and injustice - go figure - but gets to find a guy to lose in 10 days for an article (so that she can write about what REALLY matters) and Shortarms tries to get her to love him, to win himself a deal. Sad and pathetic across the board.
