Teenager Holly Hamilton is tired of moving every time her single mom Jean 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 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. Written by
Jean Hamilton (Heather Locklear) answers BADGER to a clue in a New York Times crossword puzzle. It's highly unlikely that she was correctly answering a clue, as the last time BADGER appeared as an answer in the New York Times was October 06, 1997. See more »
When taking a picture of her Uncle Ben, the flash from Amy's camera lights up her hand and arm. The light source was behind Amy and not from her camera. See more »
Saw this at a press preview and was sadly disappointed. Even though Heather Locklear is nice to look at, I disliked her selfish character right from the beginning. This dark subject was portrayed with too much fluff and the movie was wrought with simple errors and missing elements. In one scene, Jean is asked to go to a Styx concert and says, "Who is Styx?" In the next scene, she knows the band well enough to know the people on stage aren't the real singers. (They're a tribute band.) Holly's young friend (and niece to Pefect man) disappears 3/4 into the movie never to be seen again. The flaming gay stereotyped bartender added nothing to the plot but comic relief. Don't waste your money at the box office. If you must see it, wait for Netflix.
