Movie Info

Robert Luketic (Legally Blonde) directs the romantic comedy Win a Date With Tad Hamilton! from a screenplay by TV scriptwriter Victor Levin. Famous Hollywood actor Tad Hamilton (soap opera star Josh Duhamel making his film debut) is trying to promote his new movie. His manager (Sean Hayes) and his agent (Nathan Lane) both convince him to participate in a dating contest in order to improve his bad-boy image. The contest is won by Rosalee Futch (Kate Bosworth), an attractive young checkout girl who works at a Piggly Wiggly in West Virginia. When Tad ends up falling in love with her, he's willing to give up big-city life and move to small-town America. Meanwhile, her best friend and co-worker Pete (Topher Grace) is finally motivated to reveal his secret crush on her. Rosalee finds herself in the middle of a love triangle between her closest friend and a dream date.

Audience Reviews for Win a Date With Tad Hamilton!


Cute feel-good movie which I always enjoy. Okay, it's pretty silly, but I can't help but like it. I didn't realize Ginnifer Goodwin was in this, so that's another plus, I don't think I knew who she was last time I watched this years ago. Good cast including Topher Grace and Sean Hayes. Just a nice little far fetched story.

Really enjoyed this film. Topher Grace is adorable! The ending made me have a smile on my face. A must see chick flick!

This movie was cute, but that's about it. I didn't laugh or even giggle very much. I think the ending may have bumped it up half a star, I didn't see that exact ending coming and thought it was clever. The deleted scenes were funnier than the movie. I mean Paris Hilton parachuting into Tad's pool...why wasn't that in the movie?

My dad always says, "There is no such thing as chick flicks. There are bad films, and there are good films." I have grown up my whole life with this philosophy so believe me when I tell you that I have no bias against chick flicks. This, however, does not fall into the 'good movie' category. Kate Bosworth might be lovely (she is by the way) and Josh Duhamel might have made a lot of money (he did by the way) but the film itself consists of a boring storyline, average performances and an ending which I had time to make an entire roast lamb dinner for once I saw it coming. Topher Grace tries with all his might to hold the film together with the most genuine performance and natural comedic talent, but it's more than anyone would have been able to handle. Kudos for trying Topher. Don't worry, Spiderman 3 makes you pretty rich, pretty soon. Defining Scene: The extremely cheesy confrontation scene with Topher and Josh. Topher obviously did what he could with the script available but the forces of darkness were too strong.
