As the opening credits roll, attractive but incredibly shrill blonde businesswoman Adrienne Frantz (as Simone Matthews) tells off an old boyfriend. She gets in her limo and agrees to interview someone for a big promotion. The new man turns out to be handsome and muscular blond Jon Cor (as Brandon Moore). His good looks and beautifully trimmed facial hair immediately arouse Ms. Frantz. The job is his, and then some. This means Mr. Cor must carry on a "long distance relationship" with girlfriend Ashley Leggat (as Jensyn Bannet), a student in New York...
Accepting the lucrative job offer, Cor finds his Portland, Oregon hotel accommodations have been mysteriously canceled. Responsible for the mix-up, boss-woman Frantz invites him to stay at her place. She's obviously interested in giving her sheets a work-out. Frantz adopts a dog named "Bentley" to appear more lovable, but Cor won't bite. Alas, her doggy style doesn't get Cor into bed, so Frantz decides to work on his loyalty to girlfriend Leggat...
Director Curtis Crawford and writer Christine Conradt do a lot of these theme movies for the "Lifetime" channel, with this one being another in the network's "The Perfect " series. It fits the required formula and gets the job done. Frantz is perfect as the seemingly psycho female. She would send most men running for the hills, after an initial attraction. Of course, Cor is very good looking, but not bright enough to realize Frantz' deceptions. The troubling thing is Cor not guessing "Bentley" is a new arrival. He's too dumb and the predictable story never catches fire...
At one point, we meet Frantz' younger brother Jonathan Koensgen (as Cole Matthews). The role is very well played and it seems like the story will become more interesting. Their mother (Deborah Grover) is also intriguing, but she is seen much too briefly. These relatives help characterize and humanize Franz' "Simone". While successful, they are not fully utilized (or, possibly, more involvement in the original story was cut).
