During their high school years, Chris confessed his love for his best friend and was met with a broken heart and degrading humiliation. Adding insult to injury, Chris was a big guy and was a source of ridicule for cruel classmates. Years later things have changed and Chris is now a hotshot record producer in Hollywood and the complete physical opposite of himself in high school. When a freak accident occurs on the way to Paris, Chris is forced to return home with Samantha James, an up and coming act in tow. Little does he know that he would come face to face with the friend that he tried so desperately to forget. With the chance to woo her again, Chris will do what he can despite his client's violent misgivings and a competitive rival suitor against him. No matter the crazy obstacles he must overcome, Chris will do whatever it takes to be more than just friends.

This romantic comedy stars Ryan Reynolds, Anna Faris, Amy Smart, and Chris Klein. Being with a crazy pop star girlfriend doesn’t stop Chris from pursuing his high school crush when he finally runs into her again. In high school, Chris was overweight and nerdy so his best friend just wanted to stay friends, but now that he is successful he’s not letting anything get in his way. This movie is one of those self aware movies where everyone knows it’s not great but it’s entertaining enough so they make it anyway. The jokes were crude and the characters were crazy, but I would still rate this movie 3/5 stars. @The_Reviewer of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

This movie has a ton of quotable lines. Really fun to watch around Christmas time when you're burned out from watching all the traditional movies like "It's a Wonderful Life" and "White Christmas."

The only redeeming quality to this movie is Anna Faris. Her acting is awesome. I had such a hard time believing it was her as her character was so extreme. Ms. Faris has been in some movies that really tanked. Although she is so versital and talented. Hope she one day gets the recognition she deserves. Anyway other than Anna Faris, the only other thing worth viewing in this flick is the makeup artistry where they make Ryan Reynolds appear obese when he was back in High School. Kudos to the team that made him appear so very fat - it was seamless. Other than those two points, I would give this a miss. Everything in it has been done before (and better) or it just insults your intelligence. Unless you really have nothing better to do or watch.

This is one of those movies thats good for a rainy day, but thats about it. I would recommend this to fans of off beat romantic comedies.

Very funny! The scene of Ryan Reynolds playing ice hockey was great.

Chris' Mom: Dusty, what kind of car is this?

Chris' Mom: I think it's so neat that you kids care about the environment.
Chris: I love the environment.
Chris' Mom: But honey, don't you drive a Range Rover? Aren't those bad?
Chris: [pause] Well, I had a really nice time tonight, and I hope we can do it again soon. Hey, Dusty, thanks for comin'.
Dusty: Oh, listen, man, it was my pleasure, really. Thank you all for having me. It was so nice.
[Chris takes out his retainer]
Dusty: And hey, before I forget, make sure to that you rinse that thing at least twice a day, okay? Your mouth is a disgusting open cesspool with germs and bacteria. Now put that back!
