Disappointing romantic comedy that starts well but then takes a nosedive into cliché and sickly sweet sentimentality.
| Original Score: 2/5
Disinterest gets stretched past disbelief.
One of those harmless teen romantic comedies that girls adore and everyone else suffers through.
This sorry vehicle for 'tweener star and Disney recording artist Hilary Duff hardly qualifies as a movie. It's bad TV.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
A completely awful movie, from start to finish.
| Original Score: D+
A film so awful and devoid of anything that could even loosely be described as entertaining that it makes me hope that Duff will move away from acting and concentrate on her musical career.
| Original Score: 1/5
In place of characters we can relate to, the movie delivers a witless, mechanical series of complications.
This silly, lame comedy is primarily a vehicle to promote Hilary Duff.
| Original Score: 3/10
Sometimes a movie is so perfectly awful it deserves a perfectly shaped rating: "Zero."
| Original Score: 0/4
Duff's incessant and vapid cinematic output is actually making me nostalgic for Freddie Prinze Jr.
It's just another generic Hollywood teen romantic comedy that leaves no lingering trace once the end credits have finished rolling.
...a surface treatment of an intriguing premise.
Cinematically, it's like watching your lawn grow.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
The movie drowns in stultifying dialogue, mediocre pop music and Locklear's dull-eyed mom-on-the-run.
I would say the filmmakers must be retarded, but even the mentally challenged know not to center a movie around the idea that Heather Locklear is having trouble finding a man.
| Original Score: F
The film is casually cruel in its treatment of its characters (particular Locklear's pathetic single woman, who craves a man like a junkie craves his next fix).
Simply vile, sometimes downright creepy, and it features for its leads two of the most selfish, self-centered, reprehensible and possibly unhinged characters imaginable.
| Original Score: .5/5
Like a Nike commercial without a shot of the sneakers.
[The] situation is mined mostly for mild chuckles and tepid sentiment.
The Perfect Man has a plot that turns sweet and charming Hillary Duff into a serial liar. She's not just telling little fibs. She's engaging in a prolonged and kind of mean practical joke on her mother.
