Hardly an Original Story, but Aniston is a Pleasure in her Metre

PICTURE PERFECT is truly a bit of fluff, a story that has been posed many times before in other successful date movies, a movie that would easily be dismissed were it not for the reminder that Jennifer Aniston has a finely honed sense of comic timing that keeps her in the top of the league for actresses in this metre today.

Aniston plays a career conscious young woman who hires a wedding photographer to pose as her boyfriend in order to test the interest of a man who has caught her eye and demonstrate to her company her degree of commitment to her job. It all backfires: the poser is the one she falls for and her priorities are reset. The cast includes the under-used Jay Mohr, a wasted role for Kevin Bacon, and only slight nods to the talents of actors such as Olympia Dukakis and Illeana Douglas. But Aniston is a joy to watch, even with a flimsy script and despite a series of 'costumes' that detract from her very natural beauty. The story is so derivative that it may offend the senses, but if an evening of fluff is salve for your tired brain, this excursion will fill the bill. Grady Harp, February 06
