Tired '90s romcom filled with deception, sexual innuendo.

[Aniston] has the rare gift of getting you to root for her in the most trying of circumstances, a quality that will stand her in good stead when she progresses to better material.

Sure, the movie follows a basic romantic comedy formula, but it has a freshness about it, mainly because Aniston and Mohr make a sweet match.

The characters are one-dimensional and surprisingly shallow, the film is unpleasantly predictable, and the realism factor here is You've gotta be kidding.

[Aniston] at her best can recall young Barbra Streisand in her What's Up, Doc? days.

The main thing that makes it watchable are the performances of Jennifer Aniston, Jay Mohr and Kevin Bacon. The three make an interesting romantic triangle, despite numerous plot problems, such as the story is basically unbelievable.

Not quite bad enough to call rancid, and that's the best I can say for it.

The comedy side of the formula gets short shrift here, partly because the camera spends so much time lingering on Ms. Aniston's ineffable cuteness.

The script has interesting comments to make about the expectations people place on love, marriage and commitment, but it fails to follow through; its structure disintegrates just at the point when it should take off...

Glenn Gordon Caron directs this romantic comedy with a light touch that brings to the surface its breezy observations on sexual politics.

Aniston doesn't need dialogue to catch Kate's quicksilver moods. It's the sitcom lines, at the service of a contrived plot, that choke her.

Movies like this one just sort of float around for a few weeks like a thin cloud, then slowly dissipate. Most people probably won't even remember it was in theaters when it shows up on the video rack three months from now.

There are times when a bad ending doesn't seriously damage a motion picture. This is not one of those.

What Picture Perfect sells as romance is a junior high school health class morality lecture we all got years ago. And it was a crock then, too.

It's a shame the plot is so contrived, because parts of this movie are really pretty good.

The film is an appealing and inconsequential effort that goes down as smoothly as a margarita on a Mexican beach. You may not remember anything when it is all over, but you'll swear you had a good time.

There's not much to like in Picture Perfect. Jennifer Aniston, in her first starring role, comes across as whiny, mean and cruel.

One of those films with a toe-tapping contempo soundtrack that is pretty to look at and mindlessly enjoyable to watch, but falls short of anything more.
