One of Hilary Duff's most attractive qualities is that she's not a borderline anorexic like too many Hollywood starlets; she has a warm, full-bodied presence that makes her dangerously glossy prettiness accessible. Similarly, Heather Locklear--who's been an iconic plastic blonde on television for decades--is cultivating a bruised humanity as she matures. These two combine forces in The Perfect Man, a curious teen comedy/adult romance hybrid about a single mother named Jean (Locklear, Melrose Place) whose tactic for getting over a broken heart is to move to a different part of the country, uprooting her two daughters Holly and Zoe (Duff, Cheaper by the Dozen, and newcomer Aria Wallace) in the process. Holly, to keep her mother from falling into another desperate and doomed relationship, uses advice from a schoolfriend's uncle (Chris Noth, Sex and the City) to send Jean flowers and love letters from a secret admirer. Of course, sustaining this fantasy requires some wacky antics, but The Perfect Man balances goofiness with an emotional mother/daughter tug-of-war and has some entertaining supporting actors (including Caroline Rhea, Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, and Carson Kressley, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy). The plot, however, has holes so big that it collapses even as it unfolds. --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

Comedy starring Hilary Duff and Heather Locklear. Holly Hamilton (Duff) is sick of moving house every time her single mother Jean (Locklear) breaks up with another worthless boyfriend, so she comes up with a plan to create an imaginary secret admirer who will boost Jean's self-esteem and hopefully keep her in one place. But when the romance takes off, Holly has to produce the goods, and so she borrows her best friend's handsome uncle Ben (Chris Noth) to pose as the secret admirer. But will Holly be able to keep the pretence up for long?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Comedy. 4 Sep 2006
This film is a must see. It is very funny, hilarious and light hearted. The acting is superb. It was good to see Heather Locklear back in another great and hilarious acting role after a long hiatus. Heather gives a great performance as the single mother of two girls in search of a good man. Hilary Duff as her older and scheming teenage daughter was brilliant. This comedy is a hoot and will have you laughing from the very beginning to the end. I viewed this with my teenage children and we all loved it, most importantly if you are a parent it helps you to see and understand things from the teenage perspective and if you are a teenager it helps you understand things from the parents perspective. Even though it is a comedy I think it has a lot of depth and something to offer to everyone. I strongly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantabulous girly rom-com 31 Oct 2006
This is a really great movie about a girl, Holly, who's Mum is searching for a lovely husband, and in a desperate attempt to make her happy Holly makes up the perfect man. It makes you see life from the point of view of the parents and teenages, and is a great girly movie to make you laugh, cry, but feel happy at the end. A must-have for every girl and family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining chick flick 21 Nov 2008
Chick flick that will entertain many generations of female. Not normally a fan of anything Hilary Duff stars in I was skeptical about giving this a try but I'm glad I did.

In this story, we meet Holly, a self-proclaimed teenage gypsy who has had her whole life uprooted from town to town following each break-up in her mother Jean's romantic life.

Determined that her mother will not fall for yet another loser who will cause her misery and heartbreak and cause yet another life-uprooting just as they get settled in a new city, Holly decides to intervene.

She spins a complicated lie and poses secretly as her mother's secret admirer, getting inspiration from her best-friend's handsome romantic uncle. However as things progress, Holly begins to realise the seriousness of her mother's feelings for the 'perfect man' she's created and begins to wonder if she's perhaps compromised her mother's chances at meeting the real man behind the inspiration.

A touching comedy will appeal to mothers and daughters alike.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect man 24 Sep 2006
Hilary duff and Heather lockler are great in this Perfect man.

Every time single mum Jean (Heather Locklear)breaks up with another guy, the family of three moves.

Holly Hamilton (Hilary Duff) is fed up with moving again and again, having to make new friends, missing fun things involving school.

So she thinks up a plan for her mums perfect man.

She makes up a admirer for her mum, sends her mum flowers, and presents, letters. She's trys to make her mum happy again.

She even takes a picture of her friends Uncle Ben, to make it seem more real.

Her mum is so taken with this guy.

But then she wants to meet him, and thats were Holly has a problem.

Its a sweet film, about someone who just doesnt want to face life alone without a man anymore, how a daughter would do almost anything to make her mum happy again.

1.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 29 May 2008
This is unbelievable! I was forced to watch it on a transatlantic flight and was astounded by how crap it was. But here's the weird thing, it's totally compelling! I've been secretly watching it since. If it's on Sky and I'm on my own in the house, I'll watch it.

Heather Locklear's character is totally unrealistic, I mean, what a bad mother! She just drags her kids out of school and across the country every time she gets dumped.

And there's this one scene where mother and daughters have a dance together to some really inappropriate dance music (it's a funny story but I won't spoil it). The first time you see that you'll want to kill yourself and everybody within 100 yards with a smile on their faces. But after the tenth time you'll just drop your pants and dance!

In summary, this is one of the worst films I have EVER seen, but I think I love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Film, Cast are excellent 8 Feb 2006
The film is great, emotional, funny everyone would love it. Cast were great, the little family was really well suited. Real situations are shown and the film shows them really well. You never know the film might even change the way you think in life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Chick flick classic 7 Dec 2005
Having watched this film in the cinema first off I have to say I was quitely impressed. Hilary Duff's preformance is loveable as the daughter of Heather Locklear.
Duff's character is always moving and changing schools due to her mum's boyfriend disasters! After missing her prom and moving yet again she finally decides enough is enough and begins a quest for her mothers 'perfect man'with the help of her new best friend. They make an imaginary man for her mother using her friends uncle as inspiration, after pretending to be this perfect man through e-mail and phone calls so she can stay at her new home, her mum and friends uncle realise they are each others match but not before another disaster boyfriend and little heartache. Little does she know that she's found her own perfect match!
Really good chick flick, is essential for a girls night in, will remind you that your soulmate is out there somewhere
