Storyline

Rosalee Futch is a grocery clerk living in rural West Virginia. But even a small-town girl can have big dreams, and Rosalee's is to someday--somehow--meet her big-screen idol Tad Hamilton. The somehow arrives in the form of a contest--the grand prize: a date with Tad Hamilton--and the someday is now. Rosalee wins, much to the chagrin of her best friend and co-worker Pete, who is deeply, hopelessly--and secretly--in love with Rosalee. The Win a Date contest was cooked up by Tad's agent, Richard Levy, and his manager, also named Richard Levy, to clean up Tad's bad-boy image. Someone should have told them to be careful what you wish for. When Tad meets Rosalee and gets a taste of what he's been missing in the real world, he decides he wants seconds and moves to West Virginia, turning Rosalee's dream come true into a nightmare for Richard Levy, Richard Levy and, most of all, Pete. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Great movie!
3 January 2004 | by (Dallas) – See all my reviews

I went to the screening of "Win A Date With Tad Hamilton!" last night.

I thought it was a great romantic comedy, and it was more funny than I expected.

Kate Bosworth was great. She was always so upbeat and happy as Rosalee Futch. She looks just like a typical girl who wants to meet her favorite movie star-screaming and all.

Topher Grace was someone most girls could be friends with. He takes care of Rosalee and secretly loves her. He even helps his good buddy(sarcasim) Tad out a bit. He tells Rosalee to "guard her carnal treasure" quite often.

Josh Duhamel was great playing what you would think of a guy like him. From the smoking, drinking, and driving to the directions on how to cook microwavable food.

Ginnifer Goodwin was so funny. She played Rosalee's best friend and she also loves Tad Hamilton. She would act really weird in front of him, and some things she said, you couldn't help but laugh at.

This would probably be a movie you take your best friend or sister to, but not a boyfriend (unless he likes Kate Bosworth). I will see it when it officially releases, and I will definetly buy the DVD when it comes out.
