Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: Resorts to the kinds of cliches that were so yesterday two weeks ago.

- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, Friday, February 7, 2003

Rotten: This is a movie that never aspires to be anything more than dimwitted fun, then falls on its aspirations.

- Bruce Newman, San Jose Mercury News, Friday, February 7, 2003

Rotten: After a frothy start, How to Lose (an apt abbreviation) becomes a one-joke comedy of slapstick suffering.

- Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle, Friday, February 7, 2003

...or how to lose the will to live in ten minutes! A horrible clichd romance film about two very 2 dimensional and quite hateful beautiful people who fall in love unconvincingly! Calling it a chick flick is an insult to women! Stick knives in your eyes before watching!

A decent comedy as a girl tries to prove any girl can get a guy to ditch her, while the guy is out to prove he can get anyone to fall in love with him in 10 days. A few funny moments about the do's and don'ts of dating.
