Consensus: Formulaic romantic comedy works better than it should thanks to a charming cast.

Peter Travers
Rolling Stone

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.

Mark Jenkins
Washington Post

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.

Fat Guys at the Movies

It requires more than just setting reality aside for a while. It mocks reality.

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.

There is no reason on God's good Earth to see this movie.

Nell Minow
Common Sense Media

Fluffy, but well-made and irresistibly cute.

Suffers from a lack of conviction.

Susan Walker
Toronto Star

Win A Date With Tad Hamilton might be as nauseating as its assumptions of wholesomeness, but for some smart dialogue and acting.

Really enjoyed this film. Topher Grace is adorable! The ending made me have a smile on my face. A must see chick flick!

This jealously comedy film makes me laugh, even the Hollywood star's handlers (Nathan Lane and Sean Hayes) are much funniest.

This movie was cute, but that's about it. I didn't laugh or even giggle very much. I think the ending may have bumped it up half a star, I didn't… More
