  1. In Duff's movies, the question is whether the movie will find enough interesting stuff to compensate for the blandness at the center. The Perfect Man does.
  2. But for a lightweight summer romantic comedy, The Perfect Man delivers the goods and includes a couple of scenes that are, surprisingly, fresh and quite funny, both of which, incidentally, involve the music of Styx.
  3. It's a chick flick with a vengeance but even in its most sentimental moments, stars Hilary Duff and Heather Locklear make this feel-good-about-yourself movie feel ... well, good.

    The result is like a Nike commercial without a shot of the sneakers.
  5. A series of cutesy but flat-footed jokes leading up to a foregone romantic conclusion.
  6. 25
    Embarrassingly shoddy film.
  7. What sin did Heather Locklear commit to deserve her role in The Perfect Man?

    Duff sucked, as she does in all of her movies. Locklear sucked, everyone sucked. This movie sucks!

    It's classic summer counterprogramming: When a major action film comes out (like this week's "The Expendables"), counter it with something that appeals to women (like this week's "Eat Pray Love"). We look back at some of the worst examples of the "chick flick" genre since 1990.
