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.

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.

There are times when a bad ending doesn't seriously damage a motion picture. This is not one of those.
January 1, 2000
Aniston comes across like an imitation of a movie star instead of the real thing. She gets less attractive as the film goes on.

With her terrific looks, her happy and vivacious demeanor and her tenacity, Aniston gives a compelling performance as a hyperactive career woman, while making Kate an incredibly likable character.

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

The premise, admittedly, is not particularly fresh, but Caron's script is full of little gems of comedy that forgive covering this familiar territory.

The results should not surprise you. It's cute, fairly amusing, overly contrived and underwhelming.
January 1, 2000
It's a cute enough little picture, but it strains that thin premise to its limits.
January 1, 2000
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.
January 1, 2000
It is hard to watch other women when Aniston is onscreen. This is an actress with a future in features as well as in fashion statements.
January 1, 2000
It's one of those uninvolving films where the good bits are great, but who cares? -- there aren't enough of them to make us forget about the dross.
January 1, 2000
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.
January 1, 2000
A vacuous feel-good movie that leaves you feeling nothing at all.
January 1, 2000
It's a shame the plot is so contrived, because parts of this movie are really pretty good.
