Win a Date with Tad Hamilton!

Win a Date with Tad Hamilton! is a 2004 American romantic comedy film directed by Robert Luketic, written by Victor Levin, starring Kate Bosworth, Topher Grace, Josh Duhamel, Gary Cole, Ginnifer Goodwin, Sean Hayes, Nathan Lane. With a plot, similar to Ram Gopal Varma's 1995 Indian film Rangeela, the film follows a small-town girl who wins a contest for a date with a male celebrity, a love triangle forms between the girl, the star, the girl's best friend; the name of "Tad Hamilton" has been seen as a cross between the names of screen idols Tab Hunter and George Hamilton. The film received mixed reviews from critics and earned $17.1 million in the United States and $4.2 million overseas for a worldwide total of $21.3 million, making it a commercial failure against a $22 million budget. The film opens with a nurse getting out of two 1940-style cars in the middle of night; the nurse runs up to the soldier and the camera switches to reveal this to be a scene from a film. Three Piggly Wiggly store workers in Fraziers Bottom, West Virginia—Rosalee and Pete—are watching and as the nurse on screen asks for forgiveness and the soldier agrees, the women in the audience are moved to tears as Pete is unimpressed.

As the ladies wonder what Tad Hamilton—the star of the film—is doing at that moment, their prediction of praying is proven false as the scene cuts to Tad—described in the next scene by his agent—"drinking, smoking and groping all at the same time". Tad's agent tells him that his hedonistic lifestyle is damaging his reputation and career opportunities. In order to improve his image and convince a director to cast him in an upcoming film, his agents establish a competition to win a date with Tad with proceeds going towards the charity Save the Children. An online advertisement for the competition is found by Rosalee. With the help of the Piggly Wiggly customers and the reluctant agreement of Pete and Rosalee raise the $100 entrance money as Pete reveals to his superior that he will leave for Richmond to go to college after he has a discussion "with someone about going to Richmond with me". A news crew arrives outside Rosalee's house, signalling her success at winning a date with Tad Hamilton.

Subsequently, a despondent Pete sees her off at the airport. Rosalee becomes tongue-tied in Tad's presence. After seeing Tad's house, Rosalee requests to go back to the hotel and soon returns home, leaving Tad thoughtful; as Pete is about to tell Rosalee about moving to Richmond she is surprised—as much as Pete is disappointed—by Tad's sudden arrival to rekindle their relationship. Though Rosalee is still cynical of him as he uses a line from one of his films, his admission of not having "his priorities straight" seems to convince her of his good intentions. During a phone call with his agent, Tad insists that he wants to turn over a new leaf, will not return to Los Angeles for a while; when he picks Rosalee up for a date he leaves a good impression on Rosalee's father, who had studied hard for the encounter. Pete tries to stop their date by reporting the pair for illegally parking, he tries to convince Rosalee. Despite all his efforts and Tad grow close over the next few days. In the bar, Pete corners Tad in a men's room stall.

After conceding that Rosalee is in love with Tad, Pete tells Tad that Rosalee is more than a "wholesome small town girl", Rosalee is a wonderful person with "the kind of beauty a guy only sees once". He explains about her six smiles: one smile when something makes her laugh, one for polite laughter, one for when she makes plans, one when she makes fun of herself, one when she's uncomfortable, one when she's talking about her friends. Pete makes Tad swear not to break her heart or he will tear Tad to pieces with his bare hands or "vicious rhetoric"; when the pair is in Tad's hotel room, his agents appear and inform him that the director has decided to cast him in the film after all. Tad is overjoyed and convinces Rosalee to come to Los Angeles with him by using Pete's "six smiles" speech. After a rousing speech about great love from Angelica, a barmaid with a crush on him, Pete rushes to Rosalee's house and confesses his love for her but she is confused and resolves to still go to LA with Tad.

On the plane when Tad fails to identify one of Rosalee's smiles, he confesses his lie and she asks to go home. She runs to Piggly Wiggly and Pete's house drives furiously towards Richmond to overtake her heartbroken friend. Similar to the opening scene and Pete get out of their cars and Pete, surrendering to a romantic song on the car radio, asks her to dance; the film opened in 2,711 venues on January 23, 2004 and earned $7,320,066 in its opening weekend, ranking third in the North American box office and second among the week's new releases. The film grossed $17,071,962 in North America and $4,206,494 internationally for a worldwide total of $21,278,456. Based on a $22 million budget, the film was a box office bomb. Win a Date with Tad Hamilton! received mixed reviews from critics. On Rotten Tomatoes, the film received a 53% approval rating based on 146 reviews, with an average of 5.6/10. The site's consensus states: "Formulaic romantic comedy works better than it should thanks to a charming cast."

Metacritic reports a score of 52 out of 100 based on 35 reviews, indicating "mixed or average reviews". Roger Ebert criticized the film, noting that Duhamel's character always seems more likeable than Grace's, that the film spends more time building up a romance between Rosalee and Tad, rather than Rosalee an

HDMS Allart (1807)

HDMS Allart, a brig launched at Copenhagen in June 1807, was amongst the ships taken by the British after the second Battle of Copenhagen. In British service, she was recaptured by Danish-Norwegian gunboats after venturing too close inshore, her subsequent service was in the Dano-Norwegian Navy's Norwegian Brig Division, which harried enemy frigates and convoys in Norwegian waters. On the separation of Denmark from Norway in 1814, Allart transferred to the Norwegian navy, who sold her in 1825. Allart was one of a second series of four brigs that the Dano-Norwegian navy built to a design by Ernst Stibolt, similar to that of the four brigs of the Lougen class; the British seized three of each class after the surrender of the Dano-Norwegian fleet. The British took Allart into service as Allart. Allart arrived at Chatham on 15 December 1807, she spent the next six months until 16 May 1808 being fitted. Commander James Tillard commissioned her in February. On 27 July 1808 Alaart recaptured the sloop Goede Hoepe.

In 1808 Alaart was with Admiral Saumarez's fleet, blockading Rager Vik where the Russian fleet was sheltering after the British 74-gun third rates Implacable and Centaur had destroyed the Russian 74-gun Vsevolod. Saumarez ordered Baltic and Erebus to be prepared as fireships. However, reconnaissance by Salsette, among other vessels, revealed that the Russians had stretched a chain across the entrance to the harbor, impeding an attack by fireships. Still, on 13 September the British made a half-hearted attempt, with Erebus leading, Salsette, Magnet and the hired armed cutter Swan providing cover; the attack failed, with the loss of one vessel. Saumarez abandoned the plan. On 9 April 1809 Alaart captured the Danish galiot Flyndern. Nine days Minx captured the Danish galiot Anna Johanna Christina while Alaart was in sight. At some point Alaart sent in her boats at Bornholm where they succeeded in destroying a large vessel under the guns of a Danish battery. On 30 April Alaart was in sight when Tartar captured the Charlotte.

In July 1809 Louis A Robinson, Master’s Mate of Alaart, was in a prize that she had taken when two armed Danish boats attacked simultaneously. Robinson succeeded in repelling the other. On 9 August he was in charge of another prize when a Danish privateer lugger made three unsuccessful attempts to board his vessel. On 10 August 1809, still under Commander James Tillard, chased the Dano-Norwegian warships Lougen and Seagull into Fredriksvern, only to find herself the quarry of 15 Danish gunboats, arrayed in three divisions. After a three-hour chase the gunboats closed with Allart and an engagement began. After an engagement that lasted two hours, Alaart struck, having had her rigging shot away and having lost one man killed and three wounded; the officer in command of the gunboat flotilla was Captain Søren Adolph Bille. On 1 May 1810, off southernmost Norway, the 36-gun fifth-rate frigate, HMS Tribune attempted an attack on Samsøe and Alsen, which retreated towards land and the protection of the Mandal division of gunboats and the other brigs Allart and Seagull.

Once reunited as a brig squadron, the four Danish-Norwegian brigs sought to bring Tribune to action in a lively sea but the frigate maintained sufficient searoom. Action was broken off with some damage to Tribune's sails and her boats. On 12 May there was another inconclusive meeting, in the North Sea, of the four brigs with a British frigate, which retired with discretion after some sail and rigging damage in an 80-minute exchange of cannon fire. Allart was commanded by Premierløitnant G. Hagerup on this occasion. On 18 July 1812, Henry Weir of HMS Calypso reported that he had encountered the cutter HMS Nimble, which had gone into Norwegian waters to reconnoiter after the Battle of Lyngør. Nimble had reported that seeing four brigs at Christiansand: Allart, Seagull and Alsen. Allart was in Norwegian waters in January 1814 when the Treaty of Kiel settled separation of Norway from Denmark, but it was not until 1816 that negotiations agreed that Allart was not Danish, she was written off the Danish books on 12 November 1816.

The Norwegian navy sold her in 1825 into merchant service.
