Perfectly Okay
Ashley Quinn | IL United States | 11/13/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This is a cute enough movie with a cute enough premise. Hilary Duff plays Holly, a girl who, along with her little sister, keeps getting shuffled around the country by their mother (Heather Locklear), who leaves a town as soon as her latest relationship hits the rocks. She simply runs away, instead of actually confronting her problems. (Real good example she's setting for the kids, huh?)

Holly is sick of moving around, especially after the latest breakup has landed them in, of all places, NYC. When her mother starts dating Lenny, whom Holly perceives to be a complete loser, she concocts a scheme to send her mother flowers and love letters from "the perfect man" to keep her mother from going out with Lenny. Holly is helped by Ben (Chris Noth, total heartthrob), a chef who feeds Holly nothing but cheesy advice about love. Holly then realizes how simple it is: Ben IS the perfect man! Now if only she hadn't given her mom pictures of Ben and all these love letters and flowers, because all this is unbeknowst to Ben! Of course there's a guy in there for Holly, too, but, like her mother, she's terrified of getting her heartbroken.

Forget the perfect man. It's not really about finding the perfect guy, it's a movie about a mother and a daughter trying to find out who they are and what exactly they want. The whole time I was practically screaming at the TV because I just wanted the mother to give it up already and be happy by herself, at least for a while. The movie's biggest flaw is not clearly showing how the mother feels. Does she like Lenny? Does she think he's stupid? I wasn't quite sure. Her actions and her words are contradicting, and I find that quite annoying. But it's still cute, and it's especially good if you're hankering for some Mr. Big. RECOMMENDED."
The perfect date movie...

"The Perfect Man is a movie of wit and the heart. It has a little bit of humor in it and a lot of heart breaking situations... and some embarassing moments.

Holly Hamilton is your average teen... except she moves around... A LOT! As she describes to her best friend she meets in Brookland Amy, after another failing romance, "my mom starts out hopeful to find the perfect man but when he dosen't come along in about two weeks, she becomes desperate and hooks up with some loser and I can't do anything about it. When the relationship comes to an end, and it always does, we pack up and move again. I can't even run away because that's what she does."

Those are the words from Holly, mad how she always makes friends and then has to pack up and move when her mom, Jean, has another failed romance. Jean is a hard-working baker that has raised two girls, and had landed a job at Dolorus's bakery in New York. So Holly has a plan to make the perfect man, even if he didn't exist, so she could boost her mom's shaky self esteem and show her mom that you don't need a man to be the "perfect you"

Holly first leaves the most romantic flower, the orchid, and leaves it on the apartment door.

Instant messenging Jean from the account she set up, Holly learns more about her mom than she ever knew, using lines from a romantic guy that knows a lot about woman. His name is Ben and he's Amy's uncle. He is a manager at a ritzy restaurant called "The River Bistro" He tells Holly everything... giving her a CD to give to her mom from the perfect man, that is nothing but happy music and before you know it... the 3 Hamilton girls are dancing in the living room.

Troubles start to come into the picture when Lenny Horton, the bread baker, comes into the picture and asks Jean out. Never laying eyes on Ben and thinking what-the-heck, she says "yes" and Lenny takes her to a tribute band from Stix.

Holly finds out that after going to Ben's place that Ben is the perfect man for her mom. But since she sent him a picture in the mail of him and said that he was moving to China to open a restaurant, they can never meet. Ben does the New York Times crossword puzzle in blue pen, same as Jean... and dosen't think the moon is just a rock that comes out at night, just like Jean... Ben is the perfect man...

Holly confesses to her mom that the perfect man wasn't real after Jean gets a wedding proposal from the low life Lenny, but tells her that there is a perfect man out there that was based on the things that she said and that there is a perfect man and a perfect you.

This movie is warm hearted and funny! Don't miss out on this one folks!

Overall grade* A-
Oh, if you saw the movie trailer and wonder what the song is in it, it's called "Waiting for the sun" performed by Sixpence none the richer."
