Love Don't Cost a Thing
Nick Cannon and Steve Harvey




Overview -
Emerging superstar Nick Cannon follows up 2002's surprise hit DRUMLINE with this good-natured high school romp. A remake of 1987's CAN'T BUY ME LOVE, LOVE DON'T COST A THING transplants its zero-to-hero fairy tale to urban Los Angeles. Cannon plays Alvin Johnson, an all-around nerd who cleans neighborhood pools and builds car engines in his spare time. Unfortunately, these skills don't win popularity contests, rendering Alvin and his friends invisible to the cool crowd. But when the school's most unattainable girl, Paris Morgan (Christina Milian), wrecks her mother's car, Alvin approaches her with a ludicrous proposition: he'll fix her car if she pretends to be his girl for two weeks. She grudgingly agrees, and the very next morning, Alvin is popular for the very first time and miraculously begins to garner the attention that he's been craving his whole life--to the dismay of his now-shunned buddies. But when he starts to get too big for his Sean-Paul sweat suit, Paris is forced to pull the plug. Troy Beyer's breezy romantic comedy features an ultra-popular hip-hop soundtrack that includes songs from Nelly and R. Kelly, and another winning performance from the multi-talented Cannon.
