An ambitious, fussbudgety TV reporter finds romance with her polar opposite, a downwardly mobile waiter living with his father, in this romantic comedy set in New York City. Former MTV staple Jenny McCarthy plays Whitney, a short-fused young woman whose career takes her to the Big Apple to compete for an on-air position for one of the biggest networks in the nation. On the way to the interview, she asks directions from a sardonic Gothamite named Jimmy (Christopher Eigeman); when the two cross paths again later in the day, Whitney's harsh demeanor leads Jimmy to mistakenly believe that she's a prostitute. The two go on a series of dates with other suitors, but their chance encounters become more and more frequent, and both Jimmy and Whitney find out that the other may be a more appropriate mate than he or she first thought. The Perfect You toured a series of film festivals including the Los Angeles Film Festival before appearing on the Oxygen network in 2003.
