The Perfect Man

Critics Consensus

Preposterous and predictable, The Perfect Man manages few laughs with its poorly paced sitcom script, cookie-cutter characters and contrived plotting.

Movie Info

Teenager Holly Hamilton (Hilary Duff) is tired of moving every time her single mom Jean (Heather Locklear) has another personal meltdown involving yet another second-rate guy. To distract her mother from her latest bad choice, Holly conceives the perfect plan for the perfect man...an imaginary secret admirer who will romance Jean and boost her shaky self-esteem. When the virtual relationship takes off, Holly finds herself having to produce the suitor, borrowing her friend's charming and handsome Uncle Ben (Chris Noth) as the face behind the e-mails, notes and gifts. Holly must resort to increasingly desperate measures to keep the ruse alive and protect her mom's newfound happiness...almost missing the real perfect man when he does come along.

    "The Perfect Man" The movie was completely unrealistic. Half of what happened, wouldn't really happen in anyone's average lifetime. Their scheme to find the "perfect man" was pretty crappy, if you ask me. And it wouldn't work. The acting was okay, but only okay. Nothing special about the characters or anything really. There was really no need for Hilary Duff to be in this movie. She has talent, while the person required to play the main character in this movie could have very well been some random person off the street.an"

    If you are a Styx fan (or a Heather Locklear stalker)...it's worth it, otherwise don't bother.

    I like Hilary Duff, but this movie wasn't that great. I mean it was watchable. Nothing special.
