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.

2004 saw the release of this updated version of 1987's Can't Buy Me Love, a teen comedy about a guy who just wants to be accepted and liked. It's funny when comparing these movies that so many things change, but just as many stay the same.

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.

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.

I was bored one night and I wanted to tune into something just to kick back. I found out this movie was on Cinemax OnDemand so I watched it. As I'm watching it, I'm thinking this movie isn't too bad. Then the following day, my opinion changed on this movie. The movie went from a not too bad movie to watch occasionally to a must have movie. The movie is great because of the chemistry between Nick Cannon and Christina Milian. Cannon plays Alvin, a really smart guy with two part-time jobs but is a social outcast. Milian plays Paris, the most popular girl in school and the girl that every guy in high school dreams of dating. Alvin is one of those guys and when Paris takes her mother's Escalade in for repair, Alvin buys the parts to fix it and they make a deal that they have to pretend to be boyfriend and girlfriend. She turns him into a cool person and everybody likes him. But his ego gets in the way of his future and his original friends lose respect for him, his family is concerned about him, and Paris comes to like the old Alvin instead of the new Alvin. I really like this movie. Alvin is awesome because he's someone we can relate to and Paris is sweet and hot. This movie is a combination of two movies I hate. Those movies are Class Act and Can't Hardly Wait. I hate each movie for a different reason. I hate Class Act because it's off-key and I hate Can't Hardly Wait because JLH is in it. But this movie has a better script and everybody plays their part well here. Kenan Thompson does a great job as one of Alvin's friends and Steve Harvey is hilarious as Alvin's dad. This movie further exposes how biast movie critics are and how political The Oscars are. This movie has great laughs, great characters, great chemistry, and a great ending and all that equals a great movie!

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.
