Singer and actress Hillary Duff stars alongside Hollywood veteran Heather Locklear in 2005�s �The Perfect Man� in which Locklear plays single mother of two, Jean Hamilton, who hops from city to city in search of Mr. Right and when Jean�s relationships turn sour she doesn�t only look for a new man, but also a new city.

Jean�s latest destination is New York City and where she quickly hooks up with Lenny (Mike O'Malley), a coworker with a blatant crush on Jean. The two eventually fall for one another, yet Holly (Duff) has witnessed this scenario before, and knows the relationship is doomed for failure. More importantly, however, Holly realizes her mom is too inept to find a compatible partner, and soon takes matters into her own hands.

With the help of best friend Amy Pearl (Vanessa Lengies) and Amy�s �Don Juan-like� uncle Ben (Chris North) the pair create an on-line dating profile, and slyly seduce Jean into corresponding with their mystery man. Using Ben�s words and demeanor as a template, they craft their e-mails accordingly and even send Jean anonymous gifts.

However in an effort to get closer to Ben to soak up his wealth of romantic knowledge, Holly discovers that he is indeed her mother�s perfect match. With yet another move on the horizon, alongside Ben�s possible engagement to another woman, Amy and Holly must work quickly to join the two soul mates.

Meanwhile, Holly has also developed a much more personal reason to remain in New York and that is Adam (Ben Feldman), a classmate who has shown an interest in her, and the feeling is unquestionably mutual.

Duff�s performance earned her a Teen Choice Award nomination in the category of Best Actress in a Comedy. The soundtrack features tunes from classic and contemporary artists like Patsy Cline, Bobby Caldwell and more.

�The Perfect Man� is rated PG for some mildly suggestive content.
