Storyline

Sexy Ryan Banks becomes a Hollywood star overnight when he's asked to act at a party and convinces his best friend Todd Doherty to become his exclusive manager. When his career goes down hill after a failed movie, the firms boss gives Todd three months to turn the tide. Todd gets a TV station to stage a six weeks reality dating show to pick -with input from the viewers- bachelor Ryan's bride from 15 preselected candidates -all handpicked to improve Ryan's image- who cohabit with him in a fairy-tale mansion. Charlie Norton from Boston was entered by her sister and only accepts at Ryan's personal insistence, and soon proves both his and the audience's favorite. The takes for the show are a surreal experience; Todd constantly coaches Ryan trough a miniature earpiece. However Charlie spontaneously feels for Todd and finds out he's the one who thinks up all Ryan's good answers; he is torn between his professional loyalty and personal emotions, so she decides to repulse Ryan on the show, ...

A Very Predictable ENDING!!
13 March 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After viewing a few scenes of this picture, I soon realized who was going to be the finalist. It was a cute, simple minded type of film, very down to earth about a humble waitress/bartender trying to rise above her position in life who had great qualities for being a great lover, wife and mother of your children. Emma Caulfield(Charlie),"Darkness Falls,"'03, gave a great performance to her role along with Bradley Cooper,(Todd Doherty),"Carnival Knowledge",'02. It was interesting to see how the actors were able to have their lines read to them with ear pieces, no cue cards were necessary at all and it made acting look real easy! Jason Priestly(Ryan Banks),"Die Mommie Die",'03 did not impress me in this film, but maybe that was the way he was suppose to play his role. Nice light minded film to sit back and enjoy if you CAN!!
