Content:

(BB, Ro, LL, S, N, AA, D, M) Very moral worldview about doing the right thing rather than following your heart with some moral points about exposing deceitfulness; seven obscenities, eight light exclamatory profanities, and girl gets sick and vomits; no violence; man yells at girl to “Guard your carnal treasure,” plus couple plans to sleep together but is interrupted, and kissing; upper male nudity; alcohol use and man appears to be drinking while driving; smoking; and, deceitfulness is exposed and father is a bit lackadaisical about his daughter’s romantic entanglements.

GENRE: Romantic Comedy

Summary:

WIN A DATE WITH TAD HAMILTON is the story of a love triangle between a small-town grocery clerk, her boss, and a Hollywood leading man named Tad Hamilton. WIN A DATE WITH TAD HAMILTON is a breezy, positive, morality-tale, romantic comedy that contains, however, some light sexual innuendoes and light foul language.

Review:

Pete Monash is the sarcastic manager of the local Piggly Wiggly in a small town in rural West Virginia. He is also in love with Rosalee, his best friend who also works at the store. Pete can’t bring himself to tell Rosalee about his feelings, however. So, he sits and suffers through his friend’s doe-eyed admiration of actor Tad Hamilton, who cuts a dashing, handsome figure on the Big Screen.

When Tad’s wholesome image suffers some bad publicity, his manager concocts a scheme to restore his image – run a dating contest for Tad’s female fans. Of course, who should happen to win the contest but Rosalee. Tad finds Rosalee’s wholesome, beautiful innocence too much to resist. When he goes to Rosalee’s home town to seriously woo her, Pete accelerates into competitive mode, but how do you compete with a Matinee Idol, especially one that’s not above stealing some of your best lines?

WIN A DATE WITH TAD HAMILTON is a breezy, positive, morality-tale, romantic comedy. The leads are appealing, and the story is entertaining. Topher Grace as Pete is particularly funny. Viewers will be able to relate to both his character and Rosalee, who is played by Kate Bosworth. The movie contains some light sexual innuendoes and light foul language, however.
