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.

Loved it!
27 June 2008 | by k-birkelandSee all my reviews

I saw a screening of this film and absolutely loved it. Tom Arnold was phenomenal and had my favorite scene of the movie in the confessional. I look forward to being reeled in by the love story again. It draws you in and pays off in the end. How can you not fall head over heals for the lovely Jenna Dewan? The music was fabulous and gives you some great love songs along with up beat music that is right in line with the comedic aspect of the film. Josh Henderson is the perfect fit for his character and will have every girl from fourteen to forty wishing they were "Molly". It seems that everyone would know someone that fits the profile of each character and we can all relate to the story line.
