Harry's one ambition is to find the perfect girl for him. He doesn't ask for much; just a beautiful intellectual who doesn't mind his constant infidelity. Harry's best friend Gerrard did once find true love - but he didn't realise it until the day she left him. Even if he does find a woman who meets his exacting criteria, he's not sure he can trust her not to grow old eventually. Then they meet Alice. She's the only woman in the world Harry and Gerrard can agree on. Unfortunately, she seems to like both of them. Gerrard wants Alice for himself, but Harry will stop at nothing to win her. Friendship is forgotten and even a little light poisoning is on the cards. But can a man who thinks size ten is a bit on the chubby side grow up fast enough to win the girl of his dreams?
