Win A Date With Tad Hamilton (DVD)
Rosalee Futch is a small town girl who works at her local Piggly wiggly and a major crush on movie star, Tad Hamilton. Rosalee is also blissfully unaware that her manager at the store and friend , Pete is head over heels in love with her. Rosalee enters a national competion to win a date with her favorite star and wins.
Rosalee lives in a town in West Virginia, she works at a store and hang out with best frineds and co-workers Pete and Cathy. They all enjoy the simple pleasures in life like going to the local bar and the cinema. Cathy and Rosalee particullarly like romance films especailly ones starring their favourite Hollywood hunk, Tad Hamilton. They believe him to be just like the the romantic leading men that he always plays.
Over in Hollywood, work of latehas kind of dried up for Tad, he's been papped driving while drinking and smoking and groping a wanna be actress all at the sametime. His agents decide they need to take action to clean up Tad's image and get the work back in. They decide to run a national competiton to win a date with the star himself . To enter the competion a entrants need to raise a 100 dollar dontation for a children's charity.
Rosale enters the competeion and wins much to the dismay of Pete. after the date Rosalee returns to her normal life with some great memories but as it turns out she had quite the effect on Tad and he shows up in her hometown. Tad wants a to spend some time with Rosalee (platonically) so some of her wholsome godness might rub off on him. Things don't stay platonic for long and poor Pete is very upset as he wanted Rosalee to accompany him when he leaves town for good.

I quite like romcoms, they are predictable usually but also funny and sweet which as long as there is good story to back it all up with can make them quite enjoyable easy viewing. Unfortuanately that is not the case here.
I'd wanted to see this for some time and finally got round to watching today while recovering froma hangover. I'd seen a few clips of the film and looked quite fun and Josh Duchamel and Topher Grace are very easy on the eye so I was quite looking forward to it.
This film actually made my hangover feel worse. It's described as a a romcom but therre really isn't anything funny about it, i couldn't even raise a grin. The storyline and plot are very poor indeed, there are no memorable lines anywhere in the film.
As for the perormances, to be fair they didn't have a lot to work with but Kate Bosworth actually seemed a little wooden and none of the cast stood out .
The whole experience was like pulling teth, i was going to turn it off but then I thought I would have to post a review on here telling everybody else not to waste an hour and a half of their lives watching this turkey.
Running Time 95 mins
Overall: Don't bother watching it
Summary: One of the worse films of all time
