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.

Cute,interesting,worth watching...
17 December 2009 | by (Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

At first i though it would be just another high-school movie but after the first few minutes the movie got me.

The story-line is not extremely unique but yet very catching and enjoyable. Soundtrack really does its job well during all the important and not-so-much-* moments.

About the actors well I must say that they really got a bright future.Not to low nor overreacting just as much emotion and everything as it is needed.Directing is also good and the act (at least to me) is well paced.

One of the few movies i rate 10/10.Recommended for everyone who's looking for nice fresh comedy with good acting and nice soundtrack ;) .
