Win A Date With Tad Hamilton!

Starring: Kate Bosworth, Topher Grace. (PG)

Release date: 2004

2 out of 5


Wholesome supermarket checkout girl Rosalee (Bosworth) has a crush on hunky movie star Tad Hamilton (Transformers star Josh Duhamel), so is super-excited when she wins a date with him in a competition. Her best pal Pete (Grace) is less impressed, however, having loved Rosalee from afar for years, so he does his best to convince her that Tad is a womanising cad who is no good for her.
Unfortunately, what could have been a cute romantic-triangle comedy becomes a total misfire – we’re meant to want Pete to get the girl but he comes off as snide and jealous while Tad seems like a nice guy who sees Rosalee as an escape from his hard-living Hollywood lifestyle. There are some mildly funny moments – especially when Pete is upstaged by an unsuspecting Tad at a local ranch – but ultimately this is disappointing stuff, only worth watching for the sharp turns from Nathan Lane and Will & Grace’s Sean Hayes as Tad’s wicked managers.
