Storyline

When she gets to the gym, she is scrutinized by the coach about her weight and feels the pressure to lose the pounds.

A Heartwrenching story about a girl's want to succeed, whatever the cost.
20 July 2008 | by yaspaigeSee all my reviews

Well to start off i must applaud Amy Jo Johnson for her portrayal of teenage gymnast Andie, considering her awful performances in other films i have seen her in (which i won't name due to how incredibly bad they are). If anything Perfect Body may be a tad cliché, but most movies tend to be and people forget it is a TV movie, most of our lives are cliché and we can relate to Andie's suffering as it is the human condition. Andie's parents plod along well through the film, whilst flat, 2 dimensional performances from Tara Boger and Ron Melendez do keep it from being 10/10 for me. But what this film does have is a happy ending with a character who is almost killed by gymnastics, but still goes back to it because it is her passion, not completely forget it which isn't realistic. The chemistry between Andie and her boyfriend is not always evident but they do have a sweet spark in some scenes. Thinking that Amy Jo Johnson was once the Pink Ranger and this film is solely centered around gymnastics and bulimia, it offers a genuine story that captures immense verve, courage and the devout strength of a girl wanting to achieve. This film isn't trying to be something it isn't,which some blockbuster turkeys like the god awful Pearl Harbour try to be.
