Editorial Reviews

Romantic Teen Comedy. In this modern update of the classic 1987 teen comedy Can't Buy Me Love, our hero is high-school senior Alvin Johnson (Nick Cannon), a brilliant, likable outcast who has come to regret the years of intellectual endeavors that prevented him and his un-hip friends from socializing, getting girlfriends and hanging out with the super-cool "Elite" kids. When queen of the Elites, Paris Morgan (Christina Milian) wrecks her mother's car, Alvin steps in and mortgages his future to help her out. The catch: In exchange for $1500 in car parts and Alvin's automotive expertise, Paris agrees to "fake a front" with him to convince the school that they're dating. The question is: can Alvin rein in his newfound ego before he loses his true friends, his chance for a scholarship and a shot at a real relationship with Paris?

3.0 out of 5 stars Predictable yet enjoyable... September 15, 2010
You now the scenario; boy meets girl, girl is out of boys league BUT boy has something that girl wants so she takes what she wants and gives him what he wants only to find out that he USED to be everything she ever wanted. This same concept has been used and abused for years. In fact, this very film is a remake. That said; this movie has some serious charm, which really works to its benefit. Not that I'm a huge fan of Mr. Mariah Carey, but he has some nice comedic timing, and his faux swag (I say faux only because he is far more believable as a nerd) is entertaining. Christina Milian is a cutey, and she really comes through as the popular girl lost in a sea of popularity she kind of resents. The message presented, about being yourself and not formulating to the molds of teenage society, is a nice one (albeit an overused and underdeveloped one), and the bouncy infectious teenage quality to the film is nothing short of enjoyable. I kind of loathe Steve Harvey, so his mug gracing the screen was a turn-off, and his ridiculous attempt at emulating Eugene Levy's iconic `American Pie' father role was a total misfire; but you have to expect a film like this to have its downs to balance out the ups. There is absolutely NOTHING new here but overall it's a fun film and if you are looking for this breed of rom-com you could do far worse.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not that bad! December 23, 2004
This is a modern day remake of "Can't Buy Me Love".Obviously you shouldn't go in expecting Oscar caliber performances...but I can say that the movie wasn't that bad! It had some moments,every scene Steve Harvey was in,was hilarious! If you are of the younger crowd you will enjoy the movie,just kick back and relax,take it for what it is...a funny,highschool flick.The soundtrack for the film was pretty good as well if you are into hip hip.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time June 30, 2004
Love may not cost a thing, but this movie does and its not worth it. The male character goes from erkel to puff doody overnight and is never likeable. Why the hot chick goes for him after all the stupid stuff he pulls is beyond comprehension. Stereotypes abound in this movie and none of them add anything to the humorless wreck. At the end I felt sorry for the nice selfless cheerleader (one non-stereotype anyway) who ends up with the goofy jerk in the end.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good remake of Can't buy me LOVE!!!! May 20, 2004
If you seen the original Cant buy me love then you should know what to expect.
Nick Cannon plays as Alvin whos a outsider and wants to become populuar with the rest of the cool kids
Christina Milian who plays Paris is the hottest girl at the school,rich,sexy,hot man im about to break a sweat!!She crash her mom car and Alvin pays for the cost but in one condition that she pretends to be his girl for 2 weeks.
Overal the movie is very good I like it alot and it teaches you alot especially being yourself.Overal just buy it you wont be disapointted.

3.0 out of 5 stars Beware Drumline fans although its mildly entertaining December 29, 2003
This film gets a mixed review at best from me. I check out films like this with my goddaughter who is 11. I loved Drumline and thought Cannon was pretty good in it. I believe he does some cable stuff on TV and I thought that I would be okay taking an 11 year old to this movie.
The film has a good message and predictably marches along its path. Nick Cannon's transformation is kind of abrupt. From Poolboy to trendsetter the events that transformed him seemed kind of abrupt. The big deal for me was there was an ongoing condom theme in the flick that caught me off guard. I don't think it was in the promos and I felt somewhat misled. I would not advise any parents to let their young kids watch this movie unless kids understand what condoms are and I wouldn't watch this with your kids unless you are prepared to have that discussion.
I have mixed feelings about that being a major joke in a PG-13 movie. On the one hand, I think adult themes should go under the radar and not be easily understood by kids or have questionable language. On the other hand there are far too many PG-13 movies that have borderline explicit sexuality without addressing safe sex. I don't know whether I should be thankful to this movie for catalyzing that discussion or angry at it for sneaking it under the radar.
Outside of that, I was mildly entertained in a predictable flick. The themes were positive and there are good messages about friendship and the dangers of popularity for teenagers.
I believe there are better urban flicks out there for the 9-13 age bracket and I'll be on the lookout for them. This probably a good flick for teenagers in high school.
2.5 stars

2.0 out of 5 stars Review for Love Don't Cost a Thing December 13, 2003
By Person
You'll actually wish you were being subjected to the original, which at least was a mildly charming film with some genuine performances -- in it's day. The movie almost plays like an extended infomercial for all things Puffy. Often rowdy and uproarious, the film also has a suprising depth and subtext. The cast is uniformly high spirited and attractive, and Ms.Beyer's direction, apart from a few over-weighted Wellesian camera angles, is functional. I would not recommend seeing this movie.

1.0 out of 5 stars ...neither, apparently, did the movie July 22, 2004
You know Hollywood?s hard up for material when it starts blowing the dust off movies from as recent as the 1980?s to rehash and remake (films that weren?t any good to begin with, I might add). ?Love Don?t Cost a Thing? is a pointless update of ?Can?t Buy Me Love,? the tale of a high school nerd who hires the hottest babe on campus to pretend to be his girlfriend. His hope is that, through his association with her, he will gain entree into the ?cool? crowd at school.

The stereotypes of adolescents that the film presents weren?t fresh twenty years ago and they?re even less so today. The story is utterly hackneyed and predictable what with Alvin being first an object of scorn, then - after some utterly unconvincing ghetto-?Pygmalion? makeover scenes - finding acceptance in the upper echelon of with-it kids, while at the same time turning his back on and rejecting the fellow nerds who used to be his friends. True to the formula, Alvin eventually learns a lesson or two about what being true to oneself really means.

There are virtually no funny moments in the film and the scenes between Alvin and his sex-obsessed dad begin to border on the creepy. ?Love Don?t Cost a Thing? may seem clever and fresh to audiences not old enough to have seen many movies, let alone the original on which this film is based. The rest of us with somewhat longer memories will gladly take a pass. What next? A remake of ?Howard the Duck??
