    Unexpectedly charming. It's a classic date movie, but it also will appeal to pre-dating tweens and middle-aged romantics.

    A flimsy, genial romp peopled with early-twentysomethings and targeted at teens and young adults.
  3. Easy to like, and easy to forget.

    A pleasant puff-pastry throwback to Sandra Dee movies, ''Bye Bye Birdie,'' and other pre-Beatles effluvia.
  5. May find an audience, but I found it to be a leftover John Hughes triangle.
  6. Should please its core audience, which includes anyone who might actually want to win a date with Tad Hamilton. Others may opt to wait for another date with Kate Bosworth -- or Nathan Lane.

    Win A Date With Tad Hamilton is a valiant attempt to create a love triangle, but ends up getting all its sums wrong.

    Win a date with Tad Hamilton is a fun movie with Topher Grace from In Good Company. The movie is as
    good as that movie and has an intriguing storyline that anyone can relate to. Many people would
    like to meet a celebrity or go on a date with their favourite celebrity. In the movie a girl from Virginia meets
    her favourite actor. The movie is one of the best romantic-comedies I've seen, the movie has no flaws.

The film centers around three friends working in the grocery store of a small town. They are big movie fans and the girls love Tad Hamilton (Josh Duhamel), the hottest new star in Hollywood. Hamilton has the looks, but his reputation isn't so good. To fix this, his people come up with the idea of a contest, where the winner get a date with Hamilton and hence the name of the film. Josh Duhamel stars and really shouldn't do comedy. He may have been terrific in the show Las Vegas, but he just isn't believable in a comedic role. As for Topher Grace, he plays this whiny, love struck, jealous friend of Kate Bosworth, and he wasn't really that funny either. Win A Date With Tad Hamilton seemed like someones attempt at making a Woody Allen film and ultimately they failed. This film just tries too hard and gets to a point where it isn't funny. It lacks all the subtle, intelligent humor of a Woody Allen film, not to mention the plot is kind of cheesy. There is a lot to look at in this movie for both men and women, but beyond that, it's really not worth your time. Expand
