Our Score
This pleasing romantic comedy from Legally Blonde director Robert Luketic may break no new ground, but it treads old territory with surprising sweetness. Kate Bosworth plays Rosalee, a small-town supermarket checkout girl who enters a competition to win a date with dreamboat Hollywood superstar Tad (Josh Duhamel, from the Transformers movie franchise). And, of course, she wins, much to the chagrin of her co-worker Pete, who's secretly in love with her. Tad initially regards Rosalee as just another potential notch on the bedpost, but gradually finds himself falling head over heels for the girl's simple charms. Next thing you know, he's off to Hicksville to woo and win her. Nicely underplayed and with likeably credible leads, this is the sort of film for which the term "feel-good" might have been especially coined.

Summary

A screen idol's reputation is damaging his career, so his manager comes up with a plan to rehabilitate the actor's public image by giving ordinary women across America the chance to win a date with him. The prize eventually goes to a supermarket checkout girl - much to the annoyance of her best friend, who has secretly carried a torch for her for years. Romantic comedy, with Kate Bosworth, Topher Grace and Josh Duhamel.
