Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The actors, especially Grace, fight hard against a schizoid script (the kids are rubes one sec, hipsters the next) and cotton-candy direction from Robert Luketic."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"It's hard to care whether it's Tad or Pete who wins Rosalee's heart, and Luketic's direction is merely functional. Yet the film is not a chore, mostly because its leading lady makes the not-quite-plausible Rosalee consistently appealing company."
‑ Mark Jenkins, Washington Post
"Fluffy, but well-made and irresistibly cute."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Fails to produce one single convincingly realistic moment."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"Few people younger than 11 or over 19 will find much to swoon about in this bland picture."
‑ Judith Egerton, Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)
"It must be admitted that the final 10 minutes of Win A Date With Tad Hamilton! are likable: one cliche following another, but with charming restraint. Or it might just have been that the movie's simple-mindedness wore me down."
‑ David Edelstein, Slate
"There is no reason on God's good Earth to see this movie."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"A reliably warm and sweet film..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"We might have to use our seat cushions to float on all this goo."
‑ Mark Collette, Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)
"As patently sweet as the trailers and title lead you to believe, and with a cast like this, the audience is the real winner."
‑ Forrest Hartman, Reno Gazette-Journal
"Suffers from a lack of conviction."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek,
"Win A Date With Tad Hamilton might be as nauseating as its assumptions of wholesomeness, but for some smart dialogue and acting."
‑ Susan Walker, Toronto Star
"Puppy love at its most bearable!"
‑ Kam Williams, Bean Soup Times
"Grace isn't a confident or resourceful enough actor to withstand the film's lopsided focus on Tad, or Duhamel's unexpectedly warm and cheerful presence."
‑ Nick Davis, Nick's Flick Picks
"Should a film about true love really leave you wanting more Hollywood glitz and less down home charm?"
‑ Harry Guerin, RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
