    This story is about "wanna-be" of a boy and the same old ending that fakers never win or fit in to whatever they wish for. This was okay.

    the only thing it cost was my $5 to rent this piece of crap!

    I don't know what it is about the flu that always seems to result in me thinking it's a good idea to watch something I have previously avoided like the plague. Maybe knowing full well I will be asleep by half way through it anyhow. Unfortunately I didn't fall asleep watching this. I wish I had. Horrible remake of an all time favourite 80's movie "Can't buy me love". Christina Milian is not too bad, but the rest are atrocious. The guy is so hammy, and the crude talk with his father. ugh.

    This was a cute remake of Can't Buy Me Love. My favorite scene was when the father brought in all the different types of condoms (ribbed, etc) and was explaining when to use them.
