November 19, 2015
The Perfect Guy is a lazy retread from the Fatal Attraction department of stalker movies.

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.

The unsure tone screams that this is a director embarrassed by the film he's making.

A reasonably engaging thriller with some topical overtones.

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

A glossy, clich-laden revenge thriller about the perils of meeting Mr. Too Good To Be True.

Decent trash that could have been delicious trash with a little more daring.

Next to child-in-jeopardy thrillers, women-in-jeopardy thrillers are about as easy to construct as films get, and this one makes no effort to break any molds. Too bad.

The Perfect Guy escalates quite nicely, leading to a satisfyingly white-knuckled finale.

It's a lazy, by-the-numbers bore. It almost jumps through hoops to not be different in any way. In fact, you could sleep through the movie and still recite what happened.

David M. Rosenthal's Internet-age thriller falls head over heels for cheesy cliches.

"The Perfect Guy" - which was, it must be pointed out, deliberately not screened for critics prior to release - is a perfect example of how lame, lazy material strands good actors, resulting in a movie that looks great and feels less so.

Nobody goes to these Fatal Attraction retreads anymore for serious drama. But this one is a movie torn - too grim and self-important to go truly nuts, but too silly and slipshod to work on a more somber level.
