Movie Info

Friends star Jennifer Aniston made her debut as the leading lady of a feature film in this romantic comedy. Kate (Aniston) is an art director with an advertising agency whose personal and professional life is stuck in neutral; while her work is good, her boss Mr. Mercer (Kevin Dunn) won't give her a promotion, and while Kate is attracted to co-worker Sam (Kevin Bacon), he's not interested in her. Kate learns that Mercer is loath to promote single people, because without permanent attachments they're free to leave whenever they wish. Kate's friend Darcy (Illeana Douglas) comes up with a possible solution: use a photo of Kate with handsome stranger Nick (Jay Mohr) to convince Mercer that she's engaged to be married. The ruse works -- Kate gets her promotion, and Sam, who's attracted to women who are already spoken for, starts showing her some attention. But soon Mercer wants to meet Kate's husband-to-be; Kate tracks down Nick and persuades him to pose as her intended for an evening, but Nick decides at the end of the night that he's in love with her. Picture Perfect was written and directed by Glenn Gordon Caron, who created the TV series Moonlighting. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    It was cute, but not great. I love Aniston, Bacon, and Dukakis, but the movie itself was kinda just blah.

    Saddeningly this is the only Quality Jennifer Aniston film. It was alot better than I expected with Touching Romance and Heartbreaking comedy! A suprising "Three out of Four" Stars. A Slight Reccomendation.

    jay mohr was the best here (starting to come across him in a few films lately. proficient actor if nothing else) and jennifer aniston (first time i've seen her in anything other than friends) was good enough in it too. i just can't give it more than a 2 because there was nothing special about it and hollywood churn these type of movies out like they're going out of fashion. unfortunately this is not the case! kevin bacon looks like a tosser
