Boychik lit??!! A car jockey at a luxury hotel in Beverly Hills, youthful hacker-turned-slacker Rollo Hemphill devises a screwball scheme for making his girlfriend jealous. Through a silly but magical ruse, our hero gets everything he's dreamed about - a celebrity job as a drive-time shock-jock, a wardrobe from Armani, use of a luxurious Malibu beach house, and a shiny red sports car. What he can't possibly get is any sex at all or the one girl he really wants. She thinks he's a gigolo and a phony, but he can't tell her the truth or she'll know he's just a jerk whose only friend in the world is a life-sized sex toy. To get his genuine heart's desire, Rollo must admit to her that his prank was a mistake, undo its hurtful consequences, and make some sobering decisions about what is really important in life.
