Storyline

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.

Microphones?!?!?
18 June 2005 | by amandajoe07See all my reviews

i saw this movie last night....can anyone who saw it please confirm with me that the microphones were shown above the actors head's through at least 1/2 of the film? other than that the movie was borderline great! despite some of the awful reviews you might have read by some critics i would still highly recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys Hilary duff, and mother-daughter types of films! this movie made me laugh a few times, even though everyone else in the entire movie theater was busting up laughing at the viewing of the microphones in almost every shot! i still do not believe that the whole plot of the movie sucked, in fact it wasn't even that bad!
