A girl goes to great lengths to invent a secret admirer for her lonely mom in The Perfect Man. Find out if this romantic flick is all fluff and no substance with Kidzworld's review!
The Perfect Man - Looking for Love in the Wrong Places
Holly Hamilton (played by Hilary Duff) is sick and tired of moving! She never gets the chance to make close friends, attend school dances or take yearbook photos cuz every time her single mom (Heather Locklear) gets dumped - and it happens a lot - she packs up the family to make a new home in a new city in hopes of finding a new man. Mom calls it an adventure, but Holly knows she's just running away from her problems. So this time, when they settle down in Brooklyn, Holly's determined to make a permanent home rather than a temporary stop. She comes up with the perfect plan for the perfect man - a secret admirer who will romance her mom and save her from falling for another loser!
The Perfect Man - Happily Ever After?
Would you believe that Holly's mom actually falls for the imaginary guy? That creates a whole new set of problems, as Holly has to come up with a real guy fast! So she steals the identity of her friend's uncle, a restaurant owner with great looks and a lot of charm, to fulfill the fantasy romance. The worst thing about this movie is Holly's mom - sure, we all want to find love, but this woman is so pathetically desperate for a man that you just feel like smacking some sense into her!
The Perfect Man - DVD Features
The Perfect Man DVD includes all the regular features like deleted scenes, bloopers and commentary from the filmmakers - but you also get some pretty unique features too. Hilary Duff and Heather Locklear sit down in the featurette, Mom & Me to chat about their onscreen mother-daughter relationship. After you've watched that, check in with Hilary to read the blogs she wrote while on set!
The Perfect Man - Bottom Line
So, is there such a thing as the perfect man? You'll have to find out by watching the movie! Make this a must-see if you're a Hilary Duff fan, but if you aren't, then skip it and rent some of the cool superhero flicks that are hitting a video store near you.
