I wasn't hoping much from this movie when I rented it just 'cause I had some free time to kill. I thought it might be just another teen movie. But I was pleasantly surprised.The all black star cast makes for an interesting watch. Some of the black babes are hot and not to mention Christina Milan, she's absolutely stunning. I would watch the movie again just for her.The plot doesn't seem very original but the script seems good. The direction is also not half bad.The emotions involved reminds you of your own good old days. The comedy is also good and I laughed many times. Do <more>
watch this movie, it's definitely not a waste of time.
The movie was about a nerd,Alvin Johnson Nick Cannon and his friends. He is a pool boy for Paris Morgan Christina Milian . He has a bunch of daydreams about her. Her man Dru goes on the news and tells everyone he is a "free agent". Then, as she was on the phone with her boyfriend Dru, he was messing around with other girls. Which leads to her crashing into a tree. Then, she had to repair it for $3,000. The parts were just $1500, so when Alvin found out he gave her a deal. Be his girl and hang out with him for two weeks and he'll fix her car. She agrees. He sits with the cool <more>
people and they stare at him. Paris and him go together to the basketball game. Ted makes fun of Alvin and he runs out. Then, Paris transforms him into a player. They spend some time together and start to like each other. Alvin's dad talks to him about the rubbers he wants to give him. Paris and Al go to a party. Al fixes a car with some rubber. On the last day they go to a free entertainment place and listen to the people. They go on a hill and Al tells them that they'll make a big break up scene tomorrow. She feels sad. They do make a big scene. Al goes to a party with Yvonne and she drags him into the car and gives him some action. He emails his friends and they booted him out of the clubhouse. He realizes his mistakes and works hard to get the car fixed. He goes to another basketball game and stick up for his friends. Paris races after him and Dru stops her. Dru tries to convince her that she is the one for him. Paris tells him "I have other dreams". Happy ending!
Spoilers Ahead!!!Nick Cannon goes from nerd to cool guy in this movie. We have seen this plot done many times before in movies. Christina Milian wrecks mom's car and gets $1500 from Nick to pay for the damages. Both of them were using each other. Wouldn't any teenager who had $1500 easily fine a beautiful girlfriend without using bribery. Everyone knew that Christina and Nick would end up together at the end of the movie. Steve Harvey is the same type of character in every role he plays. This movie would have been better and less predictable if Nick would've ended up with Reagan <more>
Gomez Preston or Nicole Robinson. Also, the basketball player would have been ejected from any real high school basketball game if he would have tried to fight some nerds in the stands. Overall, this movie was very fairytale and predictable!
A movie that got less credit than it deserved (by adamapp)
Having seen "Can't Buy Me Love" I thought to myself, why would they remake such a bad film?This version seems to insist on hitting the notes that the first one didn't. I enjoyed the storyline, the cast, everything more.Patrick Dempsey, I found annoying. I found the fact that for him falling in love with the single most shallow person he could find annoying. The character of Cindi was abrasive to me, and I just wasn't feeling moved by anything I saw.Then I saw the remake. The lead female character always had depth, and showed affection right away for this dork. The <more>
transformation sequence was much more enjoyable, and the ending, when he rattles off, "I like Michael Jackson's Bad album, that's who I am!" I loved it. His friends were fun to watch.True in ten years, this movie will be dated, but the performances will stand out to me much more than anything in the original.I give this movie 7 out of 10.
i go see movies every weekend. I wasn't suppose to go till tomorrow, but i caught a 10 o'clock showing of this movie and other then the very one-sided audience, i was genuinely impressed. Now even though this story has been done a million times, Nick Cannon managed to bring a 21st century "beat" to it, that made me laugh on and on. Now while half the movie i had my head in my hands, thanking God i wasn't in that situation, i still rate this movie among the 4th Quarter's best.
Troy Beyizzle, LDCAT was off the hiz.... (by rezzy)
Ms Beyer, I want to commend you on a film I found truly entertaining. My daughter made me see it twice, and it just got better! It took me back to my high school years- where I was definitely an Alvin. The funny thing is; I cannot pinpoint what makes this movie work for me. Maybe it was the underdog Alvin, maybe it was the lovely 'prom queen'. Perhaps everything mixed with Steve Harvey who I usually don't find funny makes this boat float. Oh, and Richard Gibbs, is it? I loved his score also. I recently saw a PBS special where some old fogey producer said: 'No one wants to <more>
see two black leads on screen'. In other words; it can't sell. Well, he was proven wrong. You struck gold with this one, and I don't know how your'e going to top it. Keep it up- in spite of the haters and naysayers.

story has touching happy ending. Overall this film has nice cast and characters, decent story, some hilarious moments and some meaning. For those who's in the mood to watch something pleasant, funny, relax and get positive emotions it's a great choice!
A remake, but with some distinctive features (by groktalo)
'Love don't cost a thing' is a remake of 'Can't buy me love' 1987 . Clearly, there are lots of similarities between the two and one might question the value of viewing the remake, having seen the original. However, there are two aspects of the remake that, in my opinion, are not as clearly emphasised in the original: father-son relationship and the importance of being open to unexpected, life-changing opportunities.Alvin, the lead character, is a high-school student, exceptionally talented in mechanical engineering and extremely hard-working. The only thing that <more>
bothers him is that there is neither any partying nor dating in his life. His father acknowledges the issue and actively encourages Alvin to improve his work-life balance. Unfortunately, the dad's motives are not entirely based on what is good for his son. Rather, the father actually wants to become a more influential person in Alvin's life. In fact, the father goes so far that he even tries to distance Alvin from his "nerdy" friends, who might indeed be "nerdy", but are at least genuine friends. Eventually, the dad realises that he has been pushing Alvin along the road of self-destruction and rights his wrongs by providing the kind of help and support that Alvin really needs.Paris is the lead female character, the most popular cheerleader, who used to date a guy who has become an NBA star. A life of luxury as a wife of a famous basketball player is what she thinks would be the best for her. It's not that Paris has no other interests, nor is that she is so hopelessly materialistic. Peer pressure and the acute lack of parental guidance and support have brought to where she is. However, the cracks are starting to open. First, Dru, the basketball start boyfriend, declares on TV that he is a "free agent" on the dating scene. Second, Paris gets the glimpse of how cruel her friends are when she witnesses how heartlessly they abuse the "nerds" who dare to walk or sit near them. Third, she damages her mother's SUV, driving it in direct contravention to her promise to stay clear of that car, as she is on her mother's car insurance.Alvin sees that traffic accident as his opportunity to buy his way into the world of party-goers. He offers Paris to pay for the parts worth $1,500 and fix the car for free if she would pretend in public that they are dating. At first, she is outraged by the proposal, but due to the necessity to get the damage to the car fixed quickly, Alvin and Paris strike a deal that she would pretend to be his date for two weeks. During those two weeks, Paris introduces Alvin to her friends, helps him develop social skills and orchestrates his entire makeover. She also comes to realise that Alvin is the only person in her life who encourages her to pursue her real music-related interests, as opposed to settling for the status of the potential future wife of a cheating sports star. Moreover, Alvin impresses Paris with his exceptionally strong intellect, decency and sincerity. There is also that curious human tendency to get attached to the person whose life we are trying to change. Therefore, it is hardly surprising that Paris falls in love with Alvin by the end of the two-week arrangement.As it is typical of romantic comedy plots, Alvin, otherwise being a very clever guy, fails to see this obvious development and also fails to grasp the real importance that Paris has in his life. He only values her contribution to his popularity. Therefore, he decides to cast her away at the end of the two-week contract. Furthermore, he rejects her when she tries to reconnect with him again. By doing so, Alvin not only alienates Paris, but he also puts his entire future in jeopardy. He is simply seduced by his ability to not only fit in but also to set the rules, evidenced by the crowd's adopting his ridiculous dancing style. Moreover, having abandoned Paris, Alvin develops a crass attitude, vulgar mannerism and egoism that far exceed anything displayed by the snobbish party-goers. He is now fully on the road to a complete self-destruction.Fortunately for Alvin, Paris is the one who helps him return to the right track by publicly exposing their two-week deal and thereby ruining his ill-gotten popularity amongst the party-goers. That gives Alvin some space to reflect on how he has got his priorities completely wrong and through his subsequent actions and with a bit of encouragement and the necessary financial support provided by his father, everything falls in its place. Finally, with a bit of luck, he even gets an opportunity to impress Paris again, now with his bravery and selflessness, which prompts her to give him another chance. This time, he grabs the opportunity with both hands and there comes the happy ending.
