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.

Did You Know?
In the scene near the beginning of the movie, where the camera switches back and forth from Tad to Pete, Pete eventually sits down to dinner with a book. The book is titled 'A Good Man is Hard to Find', which is a short story written by Flannery O'Connor
, a prominent Catholic author who lived in the Protestant-dominant south in a small town probably similar to that of Rosalee and Pete's small town. See more
When Tad first meets Pete, they begin to shake hands while Pete is seated. At this point, their hands touch. The next shot shows them both standing and their hands are apart and re-shake. See more
They also said that in first class you may personally view the film of your choice.
All right. I would like to touch intimately the person who thought of that.
