Deeply corny, thoroughly predictable and only barely funny and charming enough to win us over

This breezy no-brainer is the perfect recipe for escapist fun at just the right time, smack in the middle of Oscar season

...a teen movie about a sweet girl-next-door who's actually got a head on her shoulders. But unlike director Luketic, I'm not sure this Cinderella falls for the right fella.

Romantic comedy isn't rocket science, but it's nice to sit through one that makes you laugh, stirs the sentiment, and also leaves you feeling good about all the characters.

There's nothing here that hasn't been seen or done before, but Luketic and his stars' unabashed sweetness and sincerity make for a winning confection.

Win a Date with Tad Hamilton! isn't as lame as most January releases, but it's hardly a dream date.

The actors, especially Grace, fight hard against a schizoid script (the kids are rubes one sec, hipsters the next) and cotton-candy direction from Robert Luketic.

The cast gives it the real heave-ho. Unfortunately, by the time the movie reaches its...conclusion, the whole audience is tempted to forgo the ho and just simply heave.

It must be admitted that the final 10 minutes of Win A Date With Tad Hamilton! are likable: one cliche following another, but with charming restraint. Or it might just have been that the movie's simple-mindedness wore me down.

Duhamel certainly passes as a fox - a fact I only mention because the folks at DreamWorks clearly use his looks as a marketing tool.

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.

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

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

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