A very attractive cast is involved in a dull soap opera about committment and dating. 

Charlie (Terrence Jenkins) lives in a very successful place for a young man.  He has a home in the California Hills which probably is worth at least $25,000,000 his job as promoter of new musical stars places him just right on the economic ladder and in a position to attract very sexy women who he uses only once because he can't commit. His sister Sherry (Paula Patton) is a shrink who believes he is unable to stay with one woman falls back to the fact that he lost his parents at an early age.  

Probably most guys would be quite happy to have his high profile rich life with some of the most stunning women in Southern California.  But of course something must be wrong if he can not fall in love.  

While he begins to fall for Eva (Cassie Ventura) his boss played by Joe Pantoliano (Guido in Risky Business) pushes him to double cross one of his discoveries by leading the young performer to sign a weaker contract than he would have available to him.  

The two problems fall on him at the same time Eva begins to become important to him until he learn the major secret she has held from him.  So now he has himself in a crisis which we all know will be resolved by the time the credits run. 

Lauren London, Brandy Norwood, Chantel Jeffries along with Cassie Ventura light the screen with sexy beauty, but that's all.  There is no form to the characters they play.  The same goes for Charlie's friends, one is about to marry and the spending on the wedding is out of hand the other and his wife are having trouble conceiving a child.  

These young performers may have something to show as actors, but The Perfect Match does not connect for them.
