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

Danny Bonaduce: I'm here for a couple of reasons. One, I'm here to make up for a few hours of community service that I ACCIDENTALLY overlooked, but also I'm here 'cause I'm sure a few of you have heard that I've had problems in my past relationships due to alcohol, drugs, anger management issues, steroids, infidelity, and my inability to tell a transvestite from an actual woman.

A Light-hearted, fun comedy.
27 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a nice, light-hearted fun comedy with a good message.

Josh Henderson and Jenna Dewan have great chemistry as leading roles in this romantic comedy and both are wonderful actors. Tom Arnold is hysterical and keeps things hoping with never a dull moment. The casting was really good and I really enjoyed Jesse Heiman as the funny chubby kid that thought he really fit in but just never really did.

This movie has a fun plot and I found myself laughing through most of the movie. Most High School and college students will really relate to the plot. The high school setting was perfect. I very much liked the ending of the film. A bit like a fairytale.
