Blockbuster Night

Hello movie fans!

Tonight, Alanna and I rented a movie to watch. I shall review it for your entertainment now.

Movie: Win A Date With Tad Hamilton
Starring: Topher Grace, Kate Bosworth, Josh Duhamel, Nathan Lane, Sean Hayes
Run Time: 96 minutes
Rating on All Movie dot com: 2 1/2 stars out of 5
My Rating: 3 stars out of 5

This was a nice little movie to watch with my wife on a Friday night. We got some good laughs, and it was a wholesome, heart warming story. (Did I just write that?) The movie wasn't hilarious, but we got some good chuckles out of it. Our story is about a famous actor, Josh Duhamel as Tad, who needs to get some wholesomeness back into his image. So his manager (Sean Hayes, or Jack from "Will & Grace") and agent Nathan Lane devise a contest for a lucky girl to win a date with Tad Hamilton, hence the name of the movie. Well Rosalie Futch (Kate Bosworth) wins the date. She's a small town girl from Frasier's Bottom West Virginia, who works at a Piggly Wiggly with her two best friends Cathy Freely and Eric Forman. OK, it's actually Pete, played by Topher Grace who plays Eric Forman on "That 70's Show." Just thought I'd clarify that. Although, Topher's character is remarkably like his Forman character. Anyway, Pete's in love with Rosalie, but has to compete with Tad, who is taking a liking to Rosalie himself. He decides to move to the town, and have some of Rosalie's goodness rub off on him. He plays the old "let's be just friends" line until they play tonsil hockey like the Red Wings losing to Calgary last night in round two off the playoffs. I'm not happy about that. It was in overtime. Um...I'm getting off track a little bit. OK where was I? Eric Forman finds that it may be a little too late to show his true feelings to Rosalie, especially since she agrees to go to Hollywood for Tad's new movie shoot. I'll let ya'll see the flick to find out what happens.
There's a nice little part in this movie with the boss from "Office Space" as Rosalie's dad. It's funny how he tries to impress Tad, especially with his slick haircut, chocolate martini's, and Project Greenlight t-shirt.
All in all this was a pretty good rental movie. There's a cool gag reel to watch on the DVD.
I'm still bummed about the Red Wings. Maybe they'll win tomorrow.

Still coming soon: Matrix Revolutions, starring Bill S. Preston, Esquire. (He'll never NOT be that character to me.)
