    It wasn't as bad as it could've been, but it wasn't great. It could have been a crude film about actors with inflated egos and excesses, but it side-steps most of those pitfalls well enough. It was serviceable, and had a sweet, tender, old-fashion ending (paying homage to such films of years past in the 1950's).

    The actors are all very appealing, and Topher Grace comes off pretty well. Topher's comedic pedigree was on display as he did provide snarky remarks as a defense mechanism as he watches the girl of his dreams, Rosalee (played by winsome Kate Bosworth) get swept away by a movie star (Tad Hamilton played by Josh Duhamel) reaching to find old fashion sweetness and light in the person of Rosalee, who wins the date with him in a charity contest).

    The comedic supporting turns by Nathan Lane and Sean Hayes and Ginnifer Goodwin were funny enough, though spoofing the situation at hand at the same time.

    It's a cute date movie.

    I give it 2.75 stars or a grade of B-.

    Romcoms are not my thing, but I agree with your assessment of the film, Patrick. I appreciated the fact that Tad was basically a good guy, accepting and almost bemused by the perks and downsides of his celebrity.

    B- from me as well.
