A hilarious and charming story about a working-class kid who rents himself out as a (completely platonic) stand-in date for the socially awkward but wealthy in order to earn money for college, by the screenwriter of the classic teen movie A Sure Thing.

17-year-old Brooks Rattigan, from a working-class town, reluctantly agrees-for money -- to be a stand-in Homecoming date for a friend's geeky but wealthy cousin. Embarrassing as the evening is, he realizes that becoming a (completely platonic) rent-a-date for the rich but socially awkward could help him earn money to go to college. He soon finds himself in a previously unknown world of privilege and perks and starts living the high life, turning his back on his old friends. But he has to lie through his teeth about his background to be accepted by this elite group. In the end, he comes back to his roots -- with the right girl beside him.
