Desperate to find her perfect man Justine goes to a technology fair with her nerdy classmate Chas. It's not really her thing but is eventually persuaded to try a virtual reality makeover machine and discovers that she can create her perfect man even if it is only an electronic facsimile. The power surge from a freakish accident causes a part of her psyche to be copied into her virtual perfect man and he becomes real! Chas befriends the somewhat disoriented newly created man, who calls himself Jake, and he explains that it is really Justine inside. Justine is immediately attracted to Jake but he seems more interested in the voluptuous, man-eater known as "the Hoover" who seems to posses an innate ability to attract men without even trying! In sheer frustration Justine decides to date the sleazy Alex in an attempt to become a woman. As the day of the big date looms what will Chas and Jake do to thwart Justine and eventually what will become of Jake? Written by

I stumbled upon this movie accidentally. In any other situation I would have most likely turned the TV off and paid this movie no mind. But once I started to watch it I couldn't turn it off. I tried but my hand would slowly wander back to the remote. The acting wasn't the best that I've seen. The plot was horrible and predictable. Yet I was compelled to watch on. I've seen movies that have claimed to be intellectually stimulating and left feeling as though I had been robbed of something. But with this movie you walk in expecting nothing and therefore you feel as though you've lost nothing when you're done. I would suggest seeing this movie if you're looking for something fluffy, candy-coated, and just plain entertaining.
