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.

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

    Maybe this was a good movie and I just wasn't in the mood to put up with a bland story executed lazily by Robert Luketic (too much expectations after Legally Blond, maybe), lack of acting ability (except Topher Grace), stupid situations put up together to fill up space (just watch the father in the story - acts as a moron!) and very annoying blond moments of the main character with a philosophy which will never move you a meter away from the checkout (in real life). I think it is our mistake that, as a society, we encourage movie makers to feed crap like this to young ladies and after that complain that those same ladies will finish on some antidepressants in 20 years because their "dreams" were not like in the movie... I watched the movie to the end - my hope that a part worth something will happen disappeared with the last scene!

    Topher Grace is meant for show business. I can't believe he had to be coaxed into becoming an actor. That being said, he totally saved this movie and made it a little more than a chick flick. It could be the fact that I was a grocery store manager for awhile and I can relate, I truly liked this film for the story and dialogue, but nothing else. Kate Bosworth is definitely easy on the eyes. This film was the first thing I watched on my high definition tv. It was absolutely amazing. BUY AN HD TV!!!

    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?
