Movie Time :: The Perfect Man

It's a laid back Friday. My son is still on his school break until Wednesday next week. I have more free time on my hands. I just finished watching an old movie called The Perfect Man. I wonder if some of you remember this movie. It's about a teenage girl named Holly(played by Hillary Duff) who decides to play Cupid for her single mom named Jean (played by Heather Locklear) by coming up with an image of the perfect guy to sweep her off her feet. Jean is a forty something single mother to two daughters. She has been through many failed relationships and her way of dealing with heartbreak is moving her family to another place. Holly is tired of moving and feels she needs to take matters into her own hands when she witnessed her mom go through another painful relationship. Holly tries to uplift her mom's self-esteem by inventing a secret admirer. Holly even uses the uncle (played by Christ Noth) of her friend to play suitor to make her mom happy and excited. However, things turn against Holly when her plans nearly backfire. I don't want to give away the ending just in case you haven't seen it yet. It's a feel good movie that you might like to watch.

I realize that being a single parent is not easy. The Single Parent Chat Room is a venue for single parents to find friends and other single parents with same interests.
