      Richard Brody New Yorker A surprising triumph of unexpected substance over conventional style. May 4, 2020 Full Review Nell Minow Common Sense Media Fluffy, but well-made and irresistibly cute. Rated: 4/5 Dec 29, 2010 Full Review Nick Schager Lessons of Darkness Fails to produce one single convincingly realistic moment. Rated: D+ May 4, 2005 Full Review Amanda Mazzillo Film Joy Win a Date with Tad Hamilton! could have been a wonderful homage and pastiche of a bygone era of romance but trying to subvert the tropes through the films ending took away some of its natural charm Rated: 2.5/5 Mar 8, 2022 Full Review Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com Truly, the saving grace here is Topher Grace. Rated: 2.5/4.0 Sep 27, 2020 Full Review Debbie Lynn Elias Behind The Lens A fluffy confection that's not too heavy, not too light, but instead has a perfectly sweet tone, Win A Date With Tad Hamilton is a perfectly charming way to start the year.

      Pauline W Mother of all Trumps little children how could anyone think this was good. Every line, every plot move is so utterly predictable and trite, that it's boring and brain dead. Not a single laugh as the writing is so predictable. Just awful. Avoid and save yourself 90 minutes of drivel. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 08/22/23 Full Review steve d Toxic masculinity and asshole "good guys" make this one unwatchable. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Am I supposed to be rooting for the unlikeable manipulative Pete here? Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/28/23 Full Review shelly l If you love chick flicks and rom coms this a sweet, cute movie. Small town girl falls for a big city movie star and her best friend that has a crush on her suddenly feels threatened and tries to win her back. It's cute but definitely has it's cheesy moments. The manager, agent, and best friend's acting are so over the top in this that it takes the value of the acting down several levels. Her best friend's character is completely unbelievable. Especially when she meets Tad the first time and starts saying really inappropriate things and offers to sleep with him. Who would do that? Overall a cute movie but not believable. With the amazing cast they had, it could have been so much better. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review anna c Pretty sweet little flick about a fan getting to date her favorite movie star. Topher Grace comes off as a prick most of the movie sadly. Best reason is to watch Kate Bosworth...she is beyond adorable here. This movie was cute but definitely not the best chick-flick I've ever seen. There were parts of it that were really hard to watch because the characters were just being so stupid. Not a movie I would recommend for everybody. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Coming into this I was really expecting tad to be a bad guy ! He actually wasn’t at all . Obviously it’s cheesy but still kinda good . 2.8 Rated 3 out of 5 stars 12/14/20 Full Review Read all reviews
