Cute, enjoyable gender bender comedy.
1 February 2007 | by haganthomas-1See all my reviews

Nobody's Perfect is an idea and truth that perhaps a few of us could take more seriously and do a little less demanding of ourselves or others to be. Maybe close could be just as good only "perfect" is a word that sort of enlists expectations. Either way Nobody' Perfect is a Chad Lowe vehicle that he plays pretty well. Get the sort of pun, pretty well. Actually he does play it pretty well where I cannot decide whether Chad plays the 'female' portion of the character as if we're in on the bending while other characters in the film are not and can't seem to tell. Like a couple of other teen and 'tween films of this type, He's My Girl and Just One Of The Guys, Nobody's Perfect is no ones waste of time. Thank God it wasn't anything like a Miss Congeniality or something where Chad might have had to go up against others dressed in nightlife finery. That award/title would have been hard to come by and there just is not that much padding a man can do. Daughters of lock up your husbands cause Nobody's Perfect turns out the lights with laughs.
