You know Al, there's something we've been avoiding, all day. Something I think maybe we oughta do.
I think you're right. This may sound kinda silly. How do we do it?
Well... just go for it. Ya know?

We'll break up first thing tomorrow morning. In the hallway, so everyone can see. I mean make a big scene. But, a dignified scene. 'Cause you know we got to protect our reps.

I liked it. It was nothing special, but I liked it. It was a good story about issues that most teens deal with everyday. And it was funny.
In the movie, Alvin (Cannon) is a nobody who wants to be a popular somebody. As somebody who once wished he could be more popular in high school, I completely understand where Alvin was coming from. So when popular cheerleader, Paris (Milian) gets into a jam, Alvin offers to help her if she pretends to be his girlfriend.
But Alvin soon finds out that there's more to popularity than he realized. As Paris puts it, "Popularity is like a job" and you have to "work" to keep up with everyone else. In the end, Alvin learns that it's far more rewarding to just be himself. (There's a cliché we never get tired of hearing.)
I thought the acting in the movie was great. Nick, Christina and the rest of the cast were believable in their roles, but still managed to stay funny. I especially liked Steve Harvey, playing Nick Cannon's 'Stuck in the 70's' dad.
This movie may not be 10/10 great, but if you're looking for a good date movie, you may want to consider this one.
