Description: When two couples weave a web of fake e-mails, plotted phone calls and contrived double dates, they mess with fate and mess everything up in the edgy, outrageous WHATEVER IT TAKES. OK, he does play the accordion and his mom is the school's sex-ed obsessed nurse, but Ryan Woodman does have one thing in common with the coolest segment of the male population at Gilmore High-he has a massive crush on the most luscious knockout ever to walk its hallowed halls, Ashley Grant. Enter Chris, resident babe magnet, who's pining after Ryan's best friend Maggie, a girl-next-door with beauty, brains and heart. Ryan and Chris join forces and hatch a plan which, if successful, will land them both with the right girl-or so they think.
