Personality and affability can sustain a picture in this genre when story flaws might otherwise sabotage it. Long live Topher Grace and Gary Cole!

This breezy romantic comedy, like the winning date it depicts, may not be a deep experience -- but it's an entertaining one.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

In a jaw-dropping moment of product placement, the characters actually discuss the merits of the brand of potato chip they're eating...

While the cast has its charm, they are nevertheless stuck in a by-the-numbers script that the main character would probably hate.

...innocuously breezy, witty, and acceptably charming in its saccharine-induced appeal...giddy gals will find Tad Hamilton refreshingly spry and spunky in hokey spirit

What separates this film from its teen romantic-comedy brethren is that it entertains without pandering to its audience.

It buries a talented cast beneath jokes that have been canned and stored in bomb shelters since the Cold War.

This film is made especially for teenaged girls, and if you're not one of them, avoid this like the plague.

Film Journal International

Victor Levin's script, apart from the occasional bright line, is sappy to the max, and Robert Luketic's direction might please the 12-year-old girls who will surely form the movie's core audience.

The film's overall arc eventually gets precisely where it appears to be going, but refreshingly, the road it takes is not entirely familiar.

Las Vegas Review-Journal

Exactly the kind of movie Tad Hamilton himself would make: cute 'n' cutesy 'n' contrived, with plenty of chances for audiences to alternate between 'ha!' and 'awww ...'

It's hard to care whether it's Tad or Pete who wins Rosalee's heart, and Luketic's direction is merely functional. Yet the film is not a chore, mostly because its leading lady makes the not-quite-plausible Rosalee consistently appealing company.

There is no reason on God's good Earth to see this movie.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

If not an affair to remember, this light-hearted romance's combination of fairy-tale plot elements and an attractive cast adds up to a generally pleasant, if ultimately forgettable, diversion.

Win A Date With Tad Hamilton might be as nauseating as its assumptions of wholesomeness, but for some smart dialogue and acting.

It's all predictable stuff, but played with a nice lightness.

Veering from throwback innocence to modern cynicism, the movie is neither a compelling underdog story nor an especially funny romantic comedy.

The film may not break the romantic comedy mold, but at least it offers some engaging chiseling.
