Heavily inspired by 's 1995 Indian film , the film follows a small-town girl Bosworth who wins a contest for a date with a male celebrity Duhamel , and a forms between the girl, the star, and the girl's best friend Grace. It may be romantic fluff, but it is brightly done and all-but-irresistibly cute. As Pete is about to tell Rosalee about moving to Richmond she is surprised—as much as Pete is disappointed—by Tad's sudden arrival to rekindle their relationship. Rosalee wins an online charity contest for a date with movie superstar Tad Hamilton Josh Duhamel. In the movie a girl from Virginia meets her favourite actor. Tad is better at playing an all-American boy next door than being one. It's retro in every respect, a romantic comedy in a world so innocent that a lifetime is settled with a kiss.
When Tad meets Rosalee and gets a taste of what he's been missing in the real world, he decides he wants seconds and moves to West Virginia, turning Rosalee's dream come true into a nightmare for Richard Levy, Richard Levy and, most of all, Pete. Someone should have told them to be careful what you wish for. It lacks all the subtle, intelligent humor of a Woody Allen film, not to mention the plot is kind of cheesy. Rosalee wins, much to the chagrin of her best friend and co-worker Pete, who is deeply, hopelessly--and secretly--in love with Rosalee. Costars Nathan Lane, Sean Hayes, and Gary Cole lend additional snap to the story. Rosalee was so ditzy and had no personality or substance in the film, although both of the men chasing after her claimed that she did.
When Tad ends up falling in love with her, he's willing to give up big-city life and move to small-town America. Maybe it's something to do with 's smile. That imbalance at least has the benefit of giving a formula movie more suspense than it deserves. The somehow arrives in the form of a contest--the grand prize: a date with Tad Hamilton--and the someday is now. Despite all his efforts, Rosalee and Tad grow close over the next few days. During a phone call with his agent, Tad insists that he wants to turn over a new leaf, and will not return to Los Angeles for a while.
Carla Meyer regarded the film as being tonally inconsistent, from being a retro romantic comedy to a modern albeit gentle satire, pointing out in particular the character played by Goodwin as going from wondering if Hamilton is at church to propositioning Hamilton. A news crew arrives outside Rosalee's house, signalling her success at winning a date with Tad Hamilton. When Tad meets Rosalee and gets a taste of what he's been missing in the real world, he decides he wants seconds and moves to West Virginia, turning Rosalee's dream come true into a nightmare for Richard Levy, Richard Levy and, most of all, Pete. What is Tad really like? What will be different for him? Pete has a tiny bit of ironic self-awareness that keeps things from getting too sugary. She and a good man named Levin have long been in love, but she's swept off her feet by the sudden admiration of a snake named Count Vronsky, and rejects Levin when in fact her fate is to be his wife, and Vronsky's love is a mirage.
Written by I felt like this movie could have been a lot better if there had been some real chemistry between both Tad Josh Duhamel and Rosalee Kate Bosworth and Pete Topher Grace and Rosalee would have had just a little bit of chemistry. He tries to convince Rosalee that Tad is just using her. They I'm not one for romantic comedies, but I was a huge fan of That 70s show, and wanted to see if Topher Grace's movie roles were really worth leaving the show for, and needless to say, I was unimpressed. And because it embraces its innocence like a lucky charm, it works, for those willing to allow it. Rosalee Futch is a grocery clerk living in rural West Virginia. She runs to Piggly Wiggly and Pete's house, then drives furiously towards Richmond to overtake her heartbroken friend.
Subsequently, a despondent Pete sees her off at the airport. Similar to the opening scene, Rosalee and Pete get out of their cars and Pete, surrendering to a romantic song on the car radio, asks her to dance. But even a small-town girl can have big dreams, and Rosalee's is to someday--somehow--meet her big-screen idol Tad Hamilton. Her best friends are Cathy Gennifer Goodwin and Pete Topher Grace. There is the strangest feeling at the end of the film that Rosalee might have made the wrong choice. Win A Date With Tad Hamilton seemed like someones attempt at making a Woody Allen film and ultimately they failed. Pete tries to stop their date by reporting the pair for illegally parking.
The movie is one of the best romantic-comedies I've seen, the movie has no flaws. When the pair is in Tad's hotel room, his agents appear and inform him that the director has decided to cast him in the film after all. The film centers around three friends working in the grocery store of a small town. Just today I read the charming pages where Levin and Kitty, too shy to speak their hearts, play a word game in order to find out if they have survived Vronsky with their love still intact. The Win a Date contest was cooked up by Tad's agent, Richard Levy, and his manager, also named Richard Levy, to clean up Tad's bad-boy image. Many people would like to meet a celebrity or go on a date with their favourite celebrity. He may have been terrific in the show Las Vegas, but he just isn't believable in a comedic role.
After seeing Tad's house, Rosalee requests to go back to the hotel and soon returns home, leaving Tad thoughtful. The somehow arrives in the form of a contest--the grand prize: a date with Tad Hamilton--and the someday is now. She plays Rosalee Futch, a check-out clerk at the Piggly Wiggly in Fraser's Bottom, W. We want to care about Tad, but not too much. Within days he has purchased a house in West Virginia, taken her to dinner several times at the local diner, and made friends with her father Henry , who starts surfing Variety. Duhamel gets it exactly right.
