Tall, short-haired veterinarian Ashley Scott (as April Hill) welcomes blonde cousin Carrie Wiita (as Riley Parks) into her home for an extended visit. Seems she's been having problems with hunky blond boyfriend Thor Knai (as Aiden). A divorced mother of one, Ms. Scott is on friendly terms with her ex-husband, Jason Brooks (as Chuck Gridge). He is a big shot building constructor. Scott meets "The Perfect Boyfriend" of the movie title in the form of muscular and attractive Aiden Turner (as Jacob Tellman). But he is really coupled with seemingly psycho secretary Jennifer Taylor (as Karen), which is obvious from the opening minutes. They want the fortune controlled by 64-year-old family matriarch Susan Blakely (as Clara Hill)...
Director Robert Malenfant and writer Corbin Mezner assemble a detailed group of characters for this story of business intrigue and killing. Not much happens in the first half. In fact, it's rather tedious. The second half his more eventful. The characters emerging as the real heroine and hero are a somewhat surprising, considering their first scenes; their roles are the best and most naturally played. Leading woman Scott has an engaging, attractive manner and appearance. However, there are times when she looks like an arched alien from one of the "Star Trek" spin-offs. This is most obvious when she raises her eyebrows. Too much artificiality shows in much of the production, but the cast is attractive and the ending nicely staged.
