I am a fan of Maria Ford and the creator of the Maria Ford Home Page. Most of Maria's early movies are simple T&A flicks in which she played strippers and/or hookers and more often than not got bumped off. "The Perfect Fit" is a departure in many ways. It has substance. It has a plot. It is quirky. It is imaginative. And Maria, in it, is flawless. Her character, Perry, is a delightfully self-absorbed, pampered, twisted, un-apologetic, aggressive woman used to getting whatever she wants, whatever the cost. She is dominating. She is sarcastic. She has a past, which none of Maria's other roles have really given her. I even love that in it, she EATS. In what other movie is the beautiful, sexy lead allowed to have a healthy appetite?
