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, ...

Gotta Love I Want to Marry Ryan Banks
25 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Its incredibly predictable, the acting is that great, the plot is simple, but who can resist a fun romantic comedy-especially one where the underdog gets the girl! I loved Bradley Cooper in Alias and he does a great job in this movie. I also love how they make fun of the reality dating show on the film. In fact one of the contestants on I Want to Marry Ryan Bank is in fact one of the contestants that was snubbed on the Bachelor. Gotta love that Is this film going to be a romantic comedy classic? No. But every time i see it on Fox Family I can't resist watching it. Its a feel good movie that can't help make the viewer smile
