How does a geeky teenage genius become popular during the late stages of the game known simply as high school life? According to this movie -- an update of Can't Buy Me Love -- all you have to do is date the school's prettiest girl. But to do that, Alvin (Nick Cannon) must promise the girl (Christina Milian) that he'll help pay for repairs on her mother's car, which she's wrecked. In return, all she has to do is pretend to be his girlfriend.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that there are plenty of flinch-inducing situations including one where Al's father pressures his son to have sex without any regard to his son's emotional maturity or to the strength of the relationship his son might have. The most painful of these scenes involves Mr. Johnson demonstrating how to put a condom on a bottle with one hand while keeping the attention of an imaginary girlfriend. Young men are repeatedly told that they should be "players", not respecting their female counterparts as people but seeing them instead as objects. Finally, the movie seems to buy into a high school notion of merit, with a person's worth measured by who they are dating and which expensive labels they wear.
