Storyline

An aspiring recording artist, Adam, is burned by a bad relationship experience and decides that if women won't respond to the "nice guy" then he'll be "the jerk." This is wildly successful with meaningless relationships, but when Adam meets and falls for Molly, who doesn''t fall for his jerk routine, Adam is forced to reconsider his dating philosophy.

Quotes

Clinton: Is it true nuns are married to God?
Father Bailey: Yes. Yes, nuns have taken a vow of celibacy.
Clinton: Didn't YOU?
Father Bailey: Yes. Yes, I did.
Clinton: So, are you married to God, too?
Father Bailey: I think I know where you're going with this, Clifford, and I... I-I'm not gay. And neither's God. Ask Sister Vasquez. Of course, you know, the wife's usually the last one to find out.

Great Movie
1 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw the screening and not only high school students will relate to this movie but everyone will. Its a funny heart warming film that will make everyone laugh. Tom will have everyone rolling. Jesse also has some very funny parts. The way he acts to get a date is just ridiculous but will keep you laughing. We all know someone that fits his character in real life, the kid that never really got it.

Jenna and Josh both were amazing actors and will suck anyone into the story.

I loved the strong ties to music it just made everything that much better. I think the soundtrack will be an amazing album and look forward to hearing it.

I cant wait to see the final version.
