Seven clips from The Perfect Man
- In "The Perfect Man," teenager Holly Hamilton (Hilary Duff)
is tired of moving every time her single mom Jean (Heather
Locklear) has another personal meltdown involving yet another
second-rate guy. To distract her mother from her latest bad
choice, Holly conceives the perfect plan for the perfect
man...an imaginary secret admirer who will romance Jean and
boost her shaky self-esteem. When the virtual relationship takes
off, Holly finds herself having to produce the suitor, borrowing
her friend's charming and handsome Uncle Ben (Chris Noth) as the
face behind the e-mails, notes and gifts. Holly must resort to
increasingly desperate measures to keep the ruse alive and
protect her mom's newfound happiness ... almost missing the real
perfect man when he does come along.

Carried Away (1996) belongs in a small group of films that should have been very
well known, but somehow went to video with a whimper after a token theatrical
release. I was unable to discover why. Now that it is available on DVD, it may
gain the audience it so deserves.
Joseph is a 47 year old teacher in a two room schoolhouse, crippled by a farming
accident in his teen years, who still lives at home with his dying mother, and
"fucks" fellow schoolteacher and widow Rosealee in the dark two to three times
per week. He is uncredentialed, and the school will be closed after the current
year. He feels, not without good reason, that life has somehow passed him by,
and is not hot to marry Rosealee, as everyone expects him to, because she
represents more of the same. Then 17 year old Catherine walks into his
classroom. She is sexually precocious, drop dead gorgeous, and after deciding he
is about as good as it gets in this hick town, has no trouble at all seducing
him. Joseph, for the first time in his life, allows himself to be carried away.
It begins to get messy when Catherine concocts some fantasy that Joseph will
marry her, and then people start finding out. It is at this point that the film
could have gone way over the top, but didn't.
Joseph was played by Dennis Hopper, in what I feel is the strongest performance
of his career. Rosealle was played impeccably by Amy Irving, who was also
executive director, and co-developer of the project with her husband, director
Bruno Barreto. The Lolita Catherine was nailed by Amy Locane, who does the
sultry siren and insecure little girl perfectly. Hal Holbrook simply is the
country doctor and everybody's shrink, and Gary Busey rounds out the cast as the
retired Major, father of Catherine, who has moved to the country to try and get
his wife dried out.
You might call it a romance about Joseph and Rosealee, and how his affair with
Catherine revitalized a dying relationship, but there are many other subtexts
going on as well.
We have three B performances from both Amys. Berardinelli awarded 3.5 stars, and
Ebert three. IMDb readers have it at 6.4, but a 1.5 male/female differential
puts it in chick flick territory. The high female scores were across all age
groups. A few juvenile comments at IMDb complain about Hopper showing his
pecker, but I can assure you the scene was anything but gratuitous. The DVD
includes a commentary with Irving and Barreto. Both feel it is a beautiful film,
and their favorite of the films they have made. I agree. This is a very strong

No nudity by Kristin Booth in
Foolproof, just a bit of nice cleavage.
The nudity comes from Faye Dunaway (1,
3) in The Arrangement. Not
a lot is visible and it is obvious Kirk Douglas is much more modest, as shown by
the string around his waist. There's also some distant rear nudity of
Deborah Kerr, but it's almost
certainly a body double.
A bit more modesty by Kate Bosworth in Wonderland. At the start of the scene she
is obviously wearing a crotch patch and, later in the
scene, this mysteriously changes into some blue knickers. There's also some
cleavage by the new wonder actress Paris Hilton. In Australia she would be known
as the town bike.

Comments and captures by Dann:|
yes, Chucky is back, bloodier (and funnier) than ever, in 2004's Seed of
Chucky (at least in this latest version) is definitely played for laughs, and
even the bloodiest, nastiest scenes are done in humor, and to totally gross out
The dolls don't have a straight line, although there is an actual pathetic
and kindly demeanor from the "son", who really isn't too sure about this killing
who plays herself (and also does Tiffany's voice), is hilarious, and while she
doesn't do nudity, she sure flops them all over the place.
Chambers does do nudity, and her reward is about 30 seconds of screen
time before she winds up dead in a pool of blood.
Fans of Chucky and/or extremely gory flicks will like this one. People who
like their horror more subtle and thoughtful should take a pass

WHAT MAKES A MAN SEXY TO WOMEN
What If It's An XXXL T-Shirt? - Cargo magazine polled 866 women on what
makes a man look sexy. The #1 choice was a T-shirt and jeans, although 17
percent say a suit and tie turn them on. Underneath, 48 percent like a man to
wear boxer-briefs, 46 percent prefer boxers, and only 2 percent like a guy
who goes commando. Women also prefer clean-shaven faces, not too much cologne,
and a chest that's hairy but not too hairy. The biggest turnoffs: a combover,
untrimmed nose hair, odd facial hair, lots of back hair, thong swimsuits, short
socks, sandals and leather pants.
* Especially when worn all together.
* Damn! No wonder I keep striking out!
* A combover is a real turn-off, especially if the man is combing over his nose
* Some women like a man in a wooly sweater, until they realize it's not
asweater, it's back hair.
DICTIONARY ADMITS NEW WORDS
Commando Of The English Tongue - The new edition of the Collins English
Dictionary inducted a number of new terms from pop culture. There's "supersize;"
Joey Tribbiani's "going commando," for going without underpants; "wi-fi;" "back,
sack and crack," beauty salon slang for a man's wax job; "drink dialing," or
calling someone you're interested in romantically while drunk; "property porn,"
or TV shows about luxurious homes; "retrosexual," for a man who refuses to spend
a lot of time and money on his appearance; and "heteroflexible," which
means someone who's usually heterosexual, but not always.
* As in "The heteroflexible loves property porn."
* When a heterosexual is finished being heteroflexible, he goes back to being a
* You can tell when he's heteroflexible because he gets a back, sack and crack,
goes commando and drink-dials another man.
OUTRAGEOUS ROCK STAR DEMANDS
Housework Of The Holy - Robert Plant told the Sun newpaper that he's
never gone in for rock star "diva demands," but he does insist on one
thing. He said, "It's not very rock 'n' roll, but I like to look my best going
on stage. I find ironing helps get me in the mood before I perform. I always
have an ironing board in my room before going on stage." Later, he told BCC's
Radio Two, "I've heard Keith Richards and Mick Jagger won't go on stage
unless they've had a shepherd's pie. I don't go in for all that nonsense."
* He might get a spot of it on his shirt and have to
order a dry cleaning machine.
* All Mick and Keith demand is a shepherd's pie...with all the little brown
bits picked out.
* Mick and Keith also have irons in their dressing rooms, but they use them on
* Russell Crowe also demands an iron in his dressing room, but just to throw at
A court in Karlsruhe, Germany, rejected a request by 12 nudists to bicycle naked
along the Rhine River, ruling that nude cycling violates public decency and
would be "highly inconvenient"
* Particularly for the poor guy who rented them the bicycles
* It does give a new meaning to the phrase, "Moon River."
