Movie Info

The temptations of Hollywood living test the foundation of a young couple's blossoming relationship in this heartfelt romantic drama from director Matt Cooper. Just two months before graduating from a Midwestern college, law school student Drew (Martin Henderson) falls hopelessly in love with captivating coed Julia (Piper Perabo). Though Julia agrees to follow Drew to Los Angeles following graduation and the couple quickly makes friends with their collection of lovably quirky neighbors, their relationship hits a rocky patch when Julia begins to notice Drew's increasing infatuation with the wild and risqué Hollywood nightlife. As the passion of newfound love begins to give way to the realities and compromises of a long-lasting relationship, Drew and Julia strive to understand one another and use their experiences to build the foundation for a lasting love.

Superior to the rancid When Harry Met Sally, this is a relationship film with wonderful characters, persuasive acting, and scene after scene that rings completely true (though the feel-good ending is admittedly a bit of a cop-out).

Audience Reviews for Perfect Opposites

** (out of four) Fair romantic comedy/drama that might be good enough to pass a little time, but doesn't have enough charm or insight to leave much of a lasting impression. Martin Henderson and Piper Perabo are a couple who move from a small town to Los Angeles, where he will go to school to become a lawyer. Once in L.A. he gets caught up in the wild life of partying and meets many new shady friends, while she misses the small town world. The film is okay and the cast tries hard, but it is filled with cliches and stereotypes.

This movie also has another title, "a peice of me" I caught this one & liked the idea of the young couple from the mid-west moving to the city together to try & make the perfect life. I also liked how Henderson narrorated through it, stopping at some areas to explain why & what he would have done differently. Shows the ups & downs in relationships, which is easy to relate to. Cute love story with an ending that will leave you wondering. Not a must-see, but will entertain you enough to finish it thru.

Likeable romantic comedy, with a good cast, especially the supporting players. It's nothing out of the ordinary, but it is light and entertaining plus it doesn't outstay it's welcome.
