It's a thriller void of thrills, wasting the time of the cast and the audience.
August 22, 2018
A Perfect Guy plays it all too straight and to the point of insipid functionality.
April 12, 2017
All of the structural, if superficial aspects of the story are in place, but the film fails to dig deeper, giving talented veteran actors very little to work with.

The Perfect Guy - a poor cross between Basic Instinct and Fatal Attraction - is the latest obsessive-relationship thriller that promises an exciting ride, but just doesn't have the tools to deliver the goods.
March 27, 2016
Glossy but blandly directed stalker thriller The Perfect Guy fails to do anything interesting with its stock set-up and there's no erotic frisson between the characters. Sadly, a misted shower door is as steamy as things get here.

So very earnest in its incompetence that it's kind of sweet.
November 22, 2015
The B-movie riffs are efficiently executed, but the biggest mystery is why this supporting feature should be troubling our cinema screens when its target audience is firmly nestled on the sofa.
November 20, 2015
Lathan, Ealy and Chestnut do their best with the poorly-written script but even their experienced acting chops fail to save the copycat thriller.
November 19, 2015
Little more than an NRA promotional video targeted at African-Americans.
November 19, 2015
The Perfect Guy is a lazy retread from the Fatal Attraction department of stalker movies.
November 19, 2015
A checklist of 90s thriller cliches (so tired you can almost see the cast yawning) get trotted out with a multitude of gloss yet zero creativity, in this disappointingly strait-laced Fatal Attraction knockoff.
November 19, 2015
The beats of the character are as follows: lovely, lovely, lovely, satanic, satanic, satanic.
November 18, 2015
The Perfect Guy manages to deliver a handful of tawdry thrills and remains solidly watchable thanks to its classy cast, but it lacks the ambition to rise above generic thriller box-ticking.
November 18, 2015
An enragingly stupid and obvious 'thriller' jammed with dull genre clichs, wild hypocrisy, and just a hint of victim blaming.
September 24, 2015
Only Lathan's earnestness holds the film together -- she's so good while being given so little to work with, it's a crime that she isn't headlining better films than this one.
September 23, 2015
The unsure tone screams that this is a director embarrassed by the film he's making.
September 18, 2015
Derivatively written, [and] has a laughable villain, but its success still needs to be celebrated.
September 18, 2015
Predictable thriller wastes strong cast; some sex, violence.
September 17, 2015
I can't say with absolute authority that The Perfect Guy is the most unimaginative stalker-boyfriend movie in recent years (I've got a lot of Lifetime movies taking up space on my DVR), but man, it sure feels that way.
September 17, 2015
Halfway through, The Perfect Guy flips from bland romance to a weak woman-in-peril suspenser.
