WIN A DATE WITH TAD HAMILTON!

(Comcast Movie Collections: Love Finds a Way) As perky as that exclamation point and twice as forgettable, Robert Luketic’s pastel romantic comedy offers Kate Bosworth up on a half shell as a winsome, virginal small-town girl loved by both best friend Topher Grace and the preening Hollywood hunk (Josh Duhamel) she meets on a Hollywood date. Fourteen-year-old girls will be enchanted; your own response will depend on your tolerance for confectioner’s sugar. (PG-13; runs through June 4) Ty Burr

MAID IN MANHATTAN

(Comcast Movie Collections: New Movies) Imagine “The Wedding Planner” as a good movie. Star Jennifer Lopez, director Wayne Wang, and a battery of character actors take a hoary Cinderella premise — a hotel chambermaid from the Bronx falls in love with a Prince Charming politico — and spin it into a sweetly enjoyable confection. Ralph Fiennes is a blurry love object, but the film’s more believable than anything in Lopez’s actual romantic life. (PG-13; runs through June 14) Ty Burr

THE VOW ½

(Comcast Movie Collections: Just In) Young marrieds Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams hit a rough patch when she wakes from a coma with amnesia. It’s the rare chick flick that’s about brain trauma in addition to causing it, and it’s quite watchable date-night cheese — the kind of movie you can simultaneously snort at and enjoy. With Sam Neill and Jessica Lange. (PG-13; runs through Aug. 8) Ty Burr
