Trivia

Filmed in 2000 under the title "Dial 9 for Love" (later changed to "Men Are Dogs") with a planned 2001 release. The production company pulled out just after filming was completed, leading to the film being shelved as there was no money left to finish it. Several years later, director Kees Van Oostrum showed a rough cut to several hundred students at the filmmaking workshop he was teaching at Drexel University, and, buoyed by their positive reactions, decided to find a way to finish the film. Gary W. Wilkes stepped in as executive producer after Van Oostrum showed him the rough cut, and arranged for the necessary funding to shoot additional background scenes, create visual effects, record a score, finish editing and perform a digital intermediate. The film was finally completed in late 2012 and released in 2013 as "A Perfect Man". See more »

The movie is a little slow moving & very hard to get into but keep in mind that I am a man & not into the Lifetime-type movies
26 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"We haven't talked like that since we first met." Nina (Tripplehorn) and James (Schreiber) are a happily married couple, at least that is what Nina thinks. One day as a joke she follows one of her friends as she heads home. When she catches her with her husband her life is shattered. When she moves out she finds its not as easy to get over him as he thought. In order for closure she calls him as another woman and the romance starts to spark again. This is a hard movie to explain. First of all the synopsis I gave is what I read the movie is about before I started to watch. The only problem with this is that explanation doesn't really seem to be the main focus of the movie. While that is an aspect of it I really think the main plot of the movie is watching how James deals with his actions and how it affects him and everyone and and everything around him. All that said the movie isn't bad but it had the definite feel of a Lifetime movie. The movie itself is a little slow moving and very hard to get into but keep in mind that I am a man and not into the Lifetime-type movies. Overall, another movie where the idea sounds better then the execution. I give this a C+.
