. However, the actress herself felt that not enough has been prepared. Over six months, she tortured herself workouts at the gym, swimming, sgonkoy weight and so entered into the element of professional sports, which easily eclipsed the partner of John Travolta.
How not to triumph without telling the actress, it was for her, and not to Jane Fonda people approached for advice on how to find such an ideal figure. By the way, "Perfection" is not a sports movie.

When the credits the movie "My Girl" (1992) there were two names: Dan Aykroyd and Jamie Lee Curtis, it sounded like a promise fun spectacular.
