How to Loose A Guy in 10 Days

This movie should be more aptly called how to loose your lunch in ten minutes. Andie Anderson (Kate Hudson) is a reporter for a fashion magazine who must write an article named “How to Loose A Guy in 10 Days” Benjamin Bailey (Matthew Mc Conaughey is a sexy, young, super successful advertising executive who is bet he can any woman to fall in love with him within these same ten days. They both are in a crowed bar and surprise surprise surprise they choose each other. What A coincidence. The first thing that is annoying about this movie is that the two main characters both have alliterations for names. The second annoying thing in this movie is the cast. I admit I saw Hudson’s and Mc Conaughey’s Sophomore outing first (Fool’s Gold) I hated that movie. This one, wasn’t much better. It wasn’t Andie’s intentional annoying characteristics that made me nauseous. It was her motivation for doing so. She wanted to be a serious writer and write about serious hard hitting current and political events. So she works for a fashion magazine? Hello, where’s the logic in that? The clothes her cohorts are writing about are more intelligent then that. The third and final thing I found annoying about this movie is the ending. It was so contrived predictable and completely devoid of any originality or creativity. While I don’t want to spoil the ending for the one person who may enjoy. I’ll simply remind you that it is a romantic comedy and was written in Hollywood. (hence it has a Hollywood ending. ) What the ending is exactly I’m exercising my Miranda Rights to remain silent. I want you to go and see this movie yourself and feel free to disagree with me. That’s what the comments page is for. Grade D

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
