The film’s IMDB page was recently updated and someone changed the release date to September 9, 2009. The problem is, the production did not make the update and subsequently, that’s not the actual release date.
I contacted one of the producers to double check the date before I updated you all. They confirmed that September 9th is not correct, and they are actually hoping to release film earlier in the year. Regardless of what the IMDB page is saying, no release date has been set yet, but I was told they will hopefully have one soon, so stay tuned.
In case you don’t know, ‘The Jerk Theory‘ is about an aspiring recording artist named Adam (Josh Henderson). When he is burned by a bad relationship experience, he decides that if women won’t respond to the “nice guy”, then he’ll be “the jerk.” He is extremely successful with meaningless relationships, but when Adam meets and falls for Molly (Jenna Dewan), who doesn’t fall for his jerk routine, Adam is forced to reconsider his dating philosophy.
