    "The Perfect Man" The movie was completely unrealistic. Half of what happened, wouldn't really happen in anyone's average lifetime. Their scheme to find the "perfect man" was pretty crappy, if you ask me. And it wouldn't work. The acting was okay, but only okay. Nothing special about the characters or anything really. There was really no need for Hilary Duff to be in this movie. She has talent, while the person required to play the main character in this movie could have very well been some random person off the street.an"

    If you are a Styx fan (or a Heather Locklear stalker)...it's worth it, otherwise don't bother.

    I like Hilary Duff, but this movie wasn't that great. I mean it was watchable. Nothing special.
