All Critics (42) | Top Critics (12)

A reasonably engaging thriller with some topical overtones.

Scene after scene exists only to deliver facts for later: Carter's family background; the location of Leah's spare housekey; the presence of a mildly nosy neighbor and a clumsily introduced pet cat.

I love Sanaa Lathan, except when she has to play dumb. And, boy, does The Perfect Guy need her to be dumb.

Audience Reviews for The Perfect Guy

A glossy, cliché-laden revenge thriller about the perils of meeting Mr. Too Good To Be True. You've seen it a thousand times before.

A great build up of suspense to a massively satisfying conclusion. The Perfect Guy stars Michael Ealy as a psychopath, a very convincing and threatening one, who goes to great lengths to get back at the girl who dumped him. The concept of the film is not unique, but the execution is definitely worthy of praise as a very enjoyable thriller.

This movie was so lame. Not only was it not original, as soon as the action started the movie ended. And it was so predictable.
