Paris reluctantly agrees. After she gives Alvin a much-needed makeover, he begins to behave differently, becoming an insensitive jerk like all the other guys. Can Alvin rein in his newfound ego before he loses his true friends, an opportunity for a scholarship ... and a chance for a real relationship with Paris?]]>

Following the plot of the original in 1987, a smart but socially awkward teenager named Alvin longs to be popular and accepted by the popular clique. He has been mooning over Paris, one of the gorgeous beautiful people whose swimming pool he has been cleaning for years. One day, when Paris is in a fix after getting into a fender bender with her mom's SUV, Alvin makes her an offer she can't refuse. He offers her a large wad of cash to repair the car if she will pretend to be his girlfriend for two weeks. He is sure that just her being with him will make him popular, and she agrees. Sure enough, when they show up on Monday morning to walk down the popular kids' hallway, he is met with obvious confusion and hostility. Thanks to Paris's presence and intervention, soon the other popular kids accept him. After they stage their break up, Alvin's street cred is intact and he becomes popular like he always wanted. Unfortunately for him, he becomes vain and proud, drunk with power, and when the truth is revealed, he is left all alone.
This movie speaks to so many things within us, but quite honestly the 1987 version did it better. This one was updated with hip hop music and diversity because that's what so many are about now. However, these changes are only surface things. The things that others will and will not see are that we always want to accepted and popular. Power corrupts, as it does with Ronald in 1987 and Alvin in 2004.Read more ›
