After a career-ending accident, former NFL recruit Ian Hunter (Nick Bateman) is back on campus-and he's ready to get his new game on. As one of the masterminds behind Wingmen, Inc., a successful and secretive word-of-mouth dating service, he's putting his extensive skills with women to work for the lovelorn. But when Blake Olson requests the services of Wingmen, Inc., Ian may have landed his most hopeless client yet. From her frumpy athletic gear to her unfortunate choice of footwear, Blake is going to need a miracle if she wants to land her crush. At least with a professional matchmaker by her side she has a fighting chance. Ian knows that his advice and a makeover can turn Blake into another successful match. But as Blake begins the transformation from hot mess to smoking' hot, Ian realizes he's in danger of breaking his cardinal rule.. Written by Andrew Suraj Beera

Who wrote all those good reviews?

This movie doesn't deserve the 8,7 rating it got when it was released, please stop giving good notes just to promote your movie. God I waited so long for this one and even with the trailer I could tell the acting would be bad. I wasn't wrong about it, Bateman's acting skills are more than questionable. The girl playing Gabi was really good tho. Can't criticize the plot since it was based on a novel or the lines since it's meant to be cheesy. Although the "Dying sucks" line is a killer. Honestly don't take this movie seriously, it's not meant to be a masterpiece but you will have a really good time watching it.
