This is another high school flick making an attempt at uncovering the uselessness of trying to be someone you're not. Alvin Johnson has never quite fit in; he has a nerd-crew he hangs with, but it is his dream to get close the elitist of the elite, Paris Morgan (played by Christina Milian). When Paris wrecks her Mom's car, the mechanically inclined Alvin takes advantage of the situation, offering to fix Paris's car and pay for the parts. The only catch, Paris has to hang with Alvin for two weeks. Well, he wanted a month, but they settled for the two weeks. After all, he is kind of a geek!
Alvin and Paris end up becoming friends and she tries to change his image, and this is where the movie gets really good. Christina Milian is an excellent actress; she manages to make the scenes in this predictable sequence (her finding him clothes and a new hairstyle) work really well. She doesn't over act at all, and this makes the movie a breath of fresh air.
There is a great scene in this film, one that should become a classic: Alvin and Paris are talking to each other (really listening too) and Alvin mentions that he almost had a college scholarship because of his mechanical abilities, but he wasn't able to get the final part for their automobile engine. When Paris presses him for more information, she learns that he used all of his money (that was supposed to be for the part) to fix her car, she truly begins to care for him, seeing the side of him she has ignored.
As I have said, this movie starts out slow but finishes strong. I liked it a lot. Christina Milian is one of the most beautiful girls on the screen right now.Read more ›
Nick Cannon plays as Alvin whos a outsider and wants to become populuar with the rest of the cool kids
Christina Milian who plays Paris is the hottest girl at the school,rich,sexy,hot man im about to break a sweat!!She crash her mom car and Alvin pays for the cost but in one condition that she pretends to be his girl for 2 weeks.

a one hitter, certainly not a movie to add to a collection, not my collection anyway. The acting is terrible.Published 11 months ago by K. L.
This film is so overly contrived that it is painful. Not even worth a rent.Published on July 10 2004
Love may not cost a thing, but this movie does and its not worth it. The male character goes from erkel to puff doody overnight and is never likeable. Read morePublished on June 30 2004 by Superstar Reviewer

An alright teen movie. There's not many funny parts and it's totally predictable Harvey is miscast as the father.Published on June 7 2004 by chicoer2003
a pox on the producers and director for "making" this film.
it's a scene for scene rip-off of Can't Buy Me Love. A great movie that was actually original. Read more
