The Perfect Man review with Hilary Duff
Here's a review of the movie The Perfect Man, starring Hilary Duff, which doesn't go over too well for Duff. Perhaps it was a bad character altogether. Let's hope, anyway.
“THE PERFECT MAN * (PG, 100mins) Comedy/Romance. Hilary Duff, Heather Locklear, Chris Noth, Vanessa Lengies, Ben Feldman, Mike Oâ€™Malley, Aria Wallace.
IF MARK Rosmanâ€™s modern-day romantic fable is correct, and there is such a rare creature as the perfect man, then clearly he didnâ€™t work on this film.
If he had, the perfect man would have taken screenwriter Gina Wendkos to task for her sloppy execution of a neat premise, and berated the talented ensemble cast for lacking the vim to spark a mediocre picture to life.
Unfortunately, weâ€™re stuck with a perfectly forgettable comedy of errors, in every sense.
Resourceful teenager Holly Hamilton (Duff) has grown tired of the roller-coaster love life of her single mother Jean (Locklear), who always insists on leaving town whenever her current beau turns out to be no good…
Duffâ€™s performance is too forced: all of her characterâ€™s emotions ring false and Holly frequently comes across like a simpering, meddlesome brat.”
