This movie was critizized harshly by reviewers, but they were obviously blind to the film's greatness, as you may call it. Everything about this film is lovable, the story, the characters, the actors - Hilary Duff; need I say more? Yes, probably a thousand people said this movie was very fake but if all movies were relatable or true & possible, then all we would have in theaters would be documentaries. Bottom line is, I loved this film, very, very, much & I have watched it over and over & I still laugh everytime. What do I mean by all of this? BUY IT. Period.

This is a cute enough movie with a cute enough premise. Hilary Duff plays Holly, a girl who, along with her little sister, keeps getting shuffled around the country by their mother (Heather Locklear), who leaves a town as soon as her latest relationship hits the rocks. She simply runs away, instead of actually confronting her problems. (Real good example she's setting for the kids, huh?)

Holly is sick of moving around, especially after the latest breakup has landed them in, of all places, NYC. When her mother starts dating Lenny, whom Holly perceives to be a complete loser, she concocts a scheme to send her mother flowers and love letters from "the perfect man" to keep her mother from going out with Lenny. Holly is helped by Ben (Chris Noth, total heartthrob), a chef who feeds Holly nothing but cheesy advice about love. Holly then realizes how simple it is: Ben IS the perfect man! Now if only she hadn't given her mom pictures of Ben and all these love letters and flowers, because all this is unbeknowst to Ben! Of course there's a guy in there for Holly, too, but, like her mother, she's terrified of getting her heartbroken.

Forget the perfect man. It's not really about finding the perfect guy, it's a movie about a mother and a daughter trying to find out who they are and what exactly they want. The whole time I was practically screaming at the TV because I just wanted the mother to give it up already and be happy by herself, at least for a while. The movie's biggest flaw is not clearly showing how the mother feels. Does she like Lenny? Does she think he's stupid? I wasn't quite sure. Her actions and her words are contradicting, and I find that quite annoying. But it's still cute, and it's especially good if you're hankering for some Mr. Big. RECOMMENDED.

Ever see a Hallmark Movie Special?

Well, this was not made by Hallmark, but it fits into that type of genre: family movie or chick flick.

All the actors play their parts well. The story lines moves right into action and does not pause.

I don't want to offer a spoiler, but I might have given the movie one more star if there had been a bit more substance to the storyline and more interaction between two key characters in the film.

That being said, it was a fast paced, nice, light fluff of a movie.

Fluff to me, is a movie you choose when you are in the mood for something not too deep- violent-or has an edge of your seat type of storyline.

Some great song tracks came from this movie and after viewing it, I went back into Amazon to listen to them in the MUSIC SOUNDTRACK SECTION and learned who the artists were.

I mainly wanted to see this, because Chris Noth is a geat actor; but unfortunately he is not really in a whole lot of movies where he is featured as a main character or near the top of main characters in a film.

Finding him in this movie was a surprise and that is what made me take a chance on this film.

He definitely plays against type here of his former tv characters of- Mike Logan of Law and Order and Mr Big of SATC series.

Heather Locklear is Heather Locklear and yet, she is convincing as a well meaning Mother raising two girls, while her own self esteem has hit such rock bottom, that it is obvious she has a sad sense of desperation about her.

Hilary Duff plays her likeable, very animated( and need I mention- extremely pretty daughter?) who wants to help her Mom with her less than satisfactory life.

A well meaning idea of Duff's soon snowballs out of control and mayhem ensues. Hard to believe this movie came out in 2005. I believe Hillary Duff now has a baby of her own.

I love this movie and watch it, whenever I manage to catch that it is on, with my daughter. She is going away to college and needs to have some family friendly movies to take with her so that she is not totally inundated with inappropriate movies.

This movie is escapist fare, a light little comedy suitable for summer dvd viewing for the entire family. The mistaken identities, using the present-day vehicles of email and IM, remind me just a little of the plots of renaissance era farces. The story is filled with trendy references that will please teens.

There are deeper themes; the chief one is, don't run away from problems and less than perfect situations. Single mother Jean Hamilton has been doing that for years, providing a life without permanence, her two daughters reluctantly towing behind her. 16 year old Holly turns the tables on her mom by insisting that they take flight from their latest perch in Brooklyn. Seeing Holly's reactions to romantic complications opens Jean's eyes to her own destructive patterns, and there is a happy ending for all.
