[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.

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

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.

Insubstantial and oversweet, it still refreshes as a midsummer brain cooler.

Aniston comes across like an imitation of a movie star instead of the real thing. She gets less attractive as the film goes on.

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

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.

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