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.

Good movie to Watch
4 November 2012 | by tatkinson1004See all my reviews

I recently watched this film on Netflix, its a funny high school comedy that if you like the genre of movies on guys trying to get with girls or even if your in high school and can't get a girl you should definitely take out an hour and a half and watched this movie. Its worth the time to watch it. It's a great soundtrack by Josh Henderson, and for those guys who are dick to girls to get in there pants this will be pretty much the story of your life. So yeah take the time and watch it sometime. I gave this a 7 out of 10 so yeah and I'm a movie collector, and definitely going to be adding this film to my collection.
