    The best romantic comedies intoxicate like vintage champagne. Picture Perfect, on the other hand, is like a wine spritzer. Insubstantial and oversweet, it still refreshes as a midsummer brain cooler. [1 August 1997, p. 3D]

    Unfortunately, Picture Perfect uses embarrassing contrivances to sabotage what should have been a pleasant excursion down a familiar road.
  3. Another romantic comedy about a career woman who has everything except a man, is Jennifer Aniston's attempt to break out of her TV role. But she doesn't have the magic on the big screen to make us forget where she came from.

    It's a shame the plot is so contrived, because parts of this movie are really pretty good.

    A well-upholstered but hopelessly contrived romantic comedy, Picture Perfect is too ineffectual to tickle either the funnybone or the heartstrings.
  6. 40
    What Picture Perfect sells as romance is a junior high school health class morality lecture we all got years ago. And it was a crock then, too.

    Aniston deports herself competently, here showing us nothing she hasn't on Friends, and Bacon is pretty much on autopilot as the company stud but it is Mohr who actually shines, skilfully giving an underwritten role a genuinely deft sense of nobility and charm.

    A strong debut for Jennifer Aniston in a leading role. Picture Perfect is a delightful precursor to the career ahead of her. Nonetheless,A strong debut for Jennifer Aniston in a leading role.
