The Perfect Man Reviews
That's so believable. Heather Locklear (I repeat: HEATHER LOCKLEAR) getting dumped by men? Packing up and moving EVERY TIME you get dumped? I can't handle the stupidity of The Perfect Man. Hilary Duff is a very pretty girl who needs to pick better movies.
Nice cheesy rom-com!
The plotting makes no sense. Why Heather Locklear doesn't realise she's damned hot enough to find another man to instantly get over her ex without moving every five minutes is beyond me, and how Hilary Duff is able to instantly find a friend that is willing to whole heartedly help her out is ridiculous.
And the character Lenny seems like a nice guy, a humourous one whose more about having fun then being the product of an excessive romantic fantasy, and while he's flawed he seems best intentioned. Yet the standards of each character are too high and it's unbearable due to that, so it seems like a funnier concept if Jean never found the perfect man and it turned out she was actually not Holly's mother. I would laugh so hard if the film cut there with every character miserable because then thy would know how I felt for watching this crap.
The script, is below the standard of being poor. The moments the script tries to sound somewhat smart it's clear the actors have no clue what they're talking about, but it's somewhat more believable when Hilary Duff is talking about "A Peanut butter and Glue Sandwich" that she knows more of it. Yet it just gets worse as it goes on. It's even sexist, such as when she says that "Men never have reasons" for breaking up, which is some of the most egotistical ridiculous crap I've ever heard.
At times you can even see characters looking at the camera, breaking the fourth wall and the already damaged credibility of the filmmakers.
Really, the entire concept of the film makes no sense. It's illogical, laugh-free and utterly ridiculous. It's a concept for a film that barely fits into that of its intended audience, it's just so f*cking stupid and only benefits from Hilary Duff's famed presence while emphasising why her films are not worth seeing. The Perfect Man has nothing perfect about it, except that it's a perfect example of what NOT to do when creating a film. at least it was shot and edited decently, but still it's a wasteful experience.
