A female aerobics instructor meets a male reporter doing a story on health clubs, but it isn't love at first sight.
"Perfect" began shortly after scriptwriter Aaron Latham completed a cover story for Rolling Stone magazine detailing the new social scene at today's health clubs. Observing that this ever-growing number of co-ed spas seem to have replaced the singles bars of the '70s, Latham called his article "Looking for Mr. Goodbody" and centered his research on one of the most popular clubs in Southern California, the Sports Connection in Los Angeles.
What's wrong with wanting to be the best you can be? What's wrong with wanting to be perfect? What's wrong with wanting to be loved?
Carly Simon throws her drink in Adam's face over a piece he wrote about her. He later tells his boss at Rolling Stone he has a deal with Simon & Schuster. Simon & Schuster was co-founded by Carly's father. Given Carly's obvious disdain for Adam, it's highly unlikely Simon & Schuster would publish him.
