Overview

A girl plays Cupid for her mom, but has to invent the right man to woo her in this romantic comedy. Jean Hamilton (Heather Locklear) is a single mother with two daughters, teenaged Holly (Hilary Duff) and grade-school-aged Zoe (Aria Wallace). Fortysomething Jean has stumbled in and out of a number of bad relationships in her lifetime, and is desperate to find a good man; however, Holly has grown a bit tired of Jean's favored means of therapy after a bad breakup -- packing up the family and moving to a new city. Once Jean and her girls settle in Brooklyn, Holly thinks they should stay for a while, and when Jean's romantic prospects begin to look less than rosy, Holly and her new friend Amy (Vanessa Lengies) decide to invent a secret admirer for her. Needing advice on what the "perfect man" would say and do, Holly and Amy turn to Ben (Chris Noth), Amy's uncle, who talks a very good game when it comes to romance. But convincing Jean that there's a real man behind the steady stream of letters and e-mails from her new admirer isn't as easy as Holly imagines, and it looks as if her imaginary suitor might get in the way of a flesh-and-blood Mr. Right.

I loved this movie!!! I saw it when it first came out and now i own it. the movie is about a girl who plays matchmaker for her mother who very time breaks up with a guy moves with her two kids. the oldest holly,who is played by Hillery duff trys to find the perfect man for her mother. Holly meets her best friend Amy when holly moves to NYC. Amy and holly talk about why holly moves so much and amy introduces holly to her uncle Ben, played by the very Handsome Chris Noth. Ben gives advice to holly. Holly takes it and goes for it. You have to see the movie to see what happens.

This is just not a typical 'happy ending' story. The movie gradually reveals the lesson of hard work and discipline--sticking it out--that's what produces a happy, fulfilled life. No violence or profanity--no agression, no drama. And even though there is friction, there is also laughter, love, romance and respect. Worth checking out and in my opinion, including this wonderful DVD in the family library of best-loved movies. (Also, on-location sights of Brooklyn Heights are killer--hope to see more movies like this in the future).

Even though Teen Titans is more my style, I've got to admit, this movie is pretty good. You can relate to the embaraing parts and the parts where you just want to make everyone happy! It is a movie you can relate to Perfectly and where you can get to know the characters better and it feels like they know you Perfectly. I'd give this movie a Perfect five!
