I was in a mood for a movie, but all theatres were occupied by “Day After Tomorrow”, “Troy”, and “Van Helsing”. But when I have to go, I have to go. :) The best IMDB retated film that I haven’t seen yet that was in the cinema, was “Win a Date with Tad Hamilton!“. Considering the quality of comedy-romance films recently, and the amount of them pushed down to us from Hollywood, I didn’t want to go too much, but had to anyway.
The film turned out much better then I expected, but not better enough for me to call it’s IMDB rating of 5.6/10 unfair. It is a typical, predictable, light movie as many others. The guy behind this film is Robert Luketic, who has less then 5 movies under his belt, with “Legally Blond” being one of them. You get the idea. Most of the cast was also new to filmmaking and acting business alltogether. There were only two people who pushed this film up from 2/10 to 5.6/10 – Topher Grace (Pete, the guy who’s silently in love) and Ginnifer Goodwin (Cathy, blonde’s friend). If it wasn’t for them, the movie would have been a total disaster.
