Product Overview

Hilary Duff, Heather Locklear and Chris Noth star in this hilarious yet heartwarming comedy about mothers, daughters and the outrageous lengths people will go to for love.

Holly Hamilton (Duff) is on a mission to find her single mom (Locklear) a perfect man. Even if she has to make that man up! Without other options, she creates an imaginary secret admirer based on a charming restaurateur (Noth). But this scheme keeps Holly on her toes more than it actually sweeps her mother off her feet. One crazy mishap after another leads the two of them to discover that sometimes what you're looking for is already right in front of you.

Editors Note
Note Hilary Duff stars in this comedy as Holly, a teenager whose lovelorn single mom (Heather Locklear) moves the family--including her youngest daughter (Aria Wallace)--to a new state every time she gets dumped, which is often. Their latest residence turns out to be Brooklyn, where the now thoroughly destabilized Holly decides that enough is enough and works to prevent mom from dating yet another local loser. She uses a friend's handsome uncle (Chris Noth) as the unwitting basis for a fictional secret admirer to keep mom occupied, but the deception quickly spins out of control, resulting in some madcap hijinx. Meanwhile, a classmate who is a comic book artist (Ben Feldman) falls for Holly, but she's way too edgy to notice that love has found her instead of her mom. This whimsical plotline may sound familiar to any non-'tweener in the audience, but it works due to the relaxed, natural rapport between Duff and Locklear who share some heartfelt moments of mother-daughter bonding. Plus, no one can squirm in tortured embarrassment quite as effectively as Duff can, and she gets plenty of opportunities. The soundtrack is peppered with Styx songs (singer Dennis DeYoung plays an impersonator of himself) and Vanessa Lengies quietly stands out with plenty of natural grace as Holly's hipster high school buddy.

ReviewSource San Francisco Examiner
Review The Perfect Man tries to be a feel-good chick flick for teeny-boppers. With Hilary Duff and Heather Locklear as a mother-daughter team, it has all the earmarks.But how writers Michael McQuown, Heather Robinson and Katherine Torpey thought we'd identify with, much less enjoy watching, 90-plus minutes of inherently reprehensible, shallow, ethically corrupt main characters is beyond me.

Review The Perfect Man crawls hand over bloody hand up the stony face of this plot, while we in the audience do not laugh because it is not nice to laugh at those less fortunate than ourselves, and the people in this movie are less fortunate than the people in just about any other movie I can think of, simply because they are in it.
