"The Perfect Man" Movie

In The Perfect Man, teenager Holly Hamilton (Hilary Duff) is tired of moving every time her single mom Jean (Heather Locklear) has another personal meltdown involving yet another second-rate guy.

To distract her mother from her latest bad choice, Holly conceives the perfect plan for the perfect man...an imaginary secret admirer who will romance Jean and boost her shaky self-esteem.

When the virtual relationship takes off, Holly finds herself having to produce the suitor, borrowing her friend's charming and handsome Uncle Ben (Chris Noth) as the face behind the e-mails, notes and gifts.

Holly must resort to increasingly desperate measures to keep the ruse alive and protect her mom's newfound happiness. . . almost missing the real perfect man when he does come along.

The Perfect Man stars Hilary Duff (The Lizzie McGuire Movie), Heather Locklear (Uptown Girls), Chris Noth (television's Sex and the City), Mike O'Malley (28 Days), Ben Feldman (When Do We Eat?), Vanessa Lengies (television's American Dreams) and Queer Eye for the Straight Guy's Carson Kressley.

The screenplay is written by Gina Wendkos (The Princess Diaries), based on a story by Michael McQuown & Heather Robinson & Katherine Torpey; the film is produced by Marc Platt (Legally Blonde), Dawn Wolfrom (Never Again) and Susan Duff (A Cinderella Story), and executive-produced by Billy Higgins (Honey).
