Rosalee Futch is a grocery clerk living in rural West Virginia. But even a small-town girl can have big dreams, and Rosalee's is to someday--somehow--meet her big-screen idol Tad Hamilton. The somehow arrives in the form of a contest--the grand prize: a date with Tad Hamilton--and the someday is now. Rosalee wins, much to the chagrin of her best friend and co-worker Pete, who is deeply, hopelessly--and secretly--in love with Rosalee. The Win a Date contest was cooked up by Tad's agent, Richard Levy, and his manager, also named Richard Levy, to clean up Tad's bad-boy image. Someone should have told them to be careful what you wish for. When Tad meets Rosalee and gets a taste of what he's been missing in the real world, he decides he wants seconds and moves to West Virginia, turning Rosalee's dream come true into a nightmare for Richard Levy, Richard Levy and, most of all, Pete.Written by

Frazier's Bottom is located outside of Huntington, WV. Rosalee had a blue and gold WVU banner in her room, when it should have been the green and white of Marshall. See more »
[Angelica quickly comes running over]
Yes, Pete, what is the object of your desire?
Um... we'd like another round of beers.
Someday Pete, when I ask what you desire you will say: you, Angelica, *you* are the object of my desires.
I think we'll just take the beers for now.

This movie is just plain implausible
The movie is sweet, and funny at times, but there are some major flaws that ruin it.
Tad and Rosy's date is not great, they dont connect, they barely even have anything to talk about, so why is he so into her that he's willing to change his life around? If the date really was amazing and they had a real connection that the audience could feel then it would be different, but this is not at all apparent. All that is shown is a few awkward conversations over dinner and at a overlook.
Nathan Lane and Sean Hayes are great comic actors and their roles in this movie are completely short of what I had hoped.
Topher Grace's timing is hilarious but all his jokes are the same, this gets old.
The ending was too predictable even for a movie like this.
All in all, I dont recommend seeing it unless your a 12 year old girl, then you might like it.
