Big-time movie star Tad Hamilton needs to give his public image a boost after the press snap him drinking, driving, smoking, leering and groping all at the same time! His manager Richard Levy “the driven” (Nathan Lane) and agent Richard Levy “the shameless” (Sean Hayes of Will and Grace) come up with a competition for one lucky girl to win a date with Tad, and lil' ole Rosealee Futch (Kate Bosworth) from West Virginia is that lucky girl.
And so the romantic comedy cliché machine begins, small-town girl meets movie star, movie star falls for small-town girl, movie-star goes to great length to win over small-town girl. Throw in one small-town boy who's love for small-town girl is as yet unknown to her and you could be watching any movie from the Rom Com section of your friendly local Blockbusters.
A few good gags break the boredom every now and then but this is nothing special nor contains anything that hasn't been done before already.
