Kate Bosworth (seen recently as Sandra Dee in "Beyond the Sea"), is beautiful and sweet as Rosalee, a cashier at the Piggly Wiggly supermarket, who wins a date with movie star Tad Hamilton; Tad's hilarious management team (Nathan Lane as Richard Levy the Driven, and Sean Hayes as Richard Levy the Shameless), in order to rehabilitate their client's shoddy image invent a "charity date" scheme, never thinking that Tad will actually fall for the girl, which he does, creating a love triangle with Piggly Wiggly's store manager, who is madly but secretly in love with Rosalee.
Topher Grace shines as Pete the supermarket manager, as he tries to compete with the smile and abs of movie hunk Tad (perfectly played by Josh Duhamel). His comedic timing is marvelous, and he has a "lovability factor" that reminds me of John Cusack's Lloyd Dobler in that other romantic gem, "Say Anything".
Also good in the cast is the very funny Ginnifer Goodwin as Rosalee's best friend, and Kathryn Hahn as Angelica the Bartender.
The above average script was written by Victor Levin, Robert Luketic did the well paced direction, and it has a pleasant (meaning nothing overtly annoyed me) contemporary soundtrack with songs like Liz Phair's "Why Can't I ?" and John Mayer's "Back to You". There are scenes that have laugh-out-loud humor, and a lovely sappy ending that will bring tears to the eyes of those with sentimental hearts.
Total running time is 95 minutes.
The story is typical of puppy love flicks. The girl is in love with an untouchable man who, by amazing circumstances, falls into her world and quickly falls in love with her. Of course, there's an average joe who has loved her forever but can't seem to let her know. You probably know the rest from here.
In short, this flick is a standard little love story that is sure to find its way onto the DVD player of every teenage girl sleepover party. Its got a hunk, a loveable nobody, and a non-threatening lead actress who is easy to like. It's rather standard, but it is worthy of a couple of viewings.
Though I wouldn't recommend it as a definite buy, if you like these kind of sappy love stories you might want to rent it. Probably more deserving of three-and-a-half stars than four, but still pretty good.
This is a good, but at times weak, movie. The romance is the weak part, there's no real chemistry between Rosalee and Tad on their date, so it's hard to believe he'd follow her to West Virginia. And it's also hard to believe that Pete hasn't acted on his feelings for Rosalee in all the years he's known her. The comedy parts of the movie work much better, with some of the funniest scenes taking place at a farm Tad buys.
The actors are really what make this film work. Kate Bosworth, Topher Grace, and Josh Duhamel shine in the lead roles, especially Duhamel, who has the perfect good looks to play a movie star, which he does to perfection. The supporting actors are equally good, including Ginnifer Goodwin, Gary Cole, Nathan Lane, and Sean Hayes (in two roles). Kathryn Hahn is especially good as the bartender with a not so secret crush on Pete.
This is a good movie to watch when you're in the mood for a nice, sweet, light, romantic comedy.
Tad falls an love with her after the date, and trackes her down in frasier bottom west virginia, meanwhile rosalee's friend pete is madly in love with her. It has one of those feel good ending where rosalee and tad realize that they are not right for eacher other, and after a small chase rosalee and pete end up together. Now they need a sequel for pete and rosalee!

Annoying and pathetic. I can't believe my kids watch this garbage.Published 11 days ago by Ann C. Viviano
I might have liked this movie better if the Pete character had not been so whiny, insecure, and condescending. There was no point at which I was rooting for him. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Mel5776
