1.0 out of 5 stars Grainy, pan and scan June 30, 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Columbia is notorious for choosing full frame (pan and scan) over letterbox or anamorphic widescreen formats. Not only is Perfect NOT perfect because it's pan and scan, but the picture quality is awful--lots of grain, despite the claims about a digitally restored pic on the jacket.
Why spend your $$$ on this sloppy reissue when Amazon has thousands more to choose from....

4.0 out of 5 stars PERFECT April 27, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
How could this movie go wrong, it stars two of my favorite actors. I thought a couple of the scenes were a little over the top. One of the story lines that impressed me was the integrity of John's character in keeping his sources confidential but also being such a sleeze when it came to getting a story. The other story line was the obsession that people have about their bodies as if their appearance was all that mattered and their heads could be full of fluff. I would recommend this movie to anyone for just pure entertainment also. If I wanted totally intellectual movies or programs then I would go and immerse myself in deep thoughts like the scarecrow. If you want a movie that's easy on the eyes and brain that still carries an inner message then this is the one for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars PERFECT 80's MOVIE !!! July 10, 2010
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
First off, If you did not live through the 80's you can't truly understand the concept behind this film. The 80's was all about fitness and aerobics! Gyms were opening up everywhere and the health craze was taking over. It was the beginning of making your workout a social event !! I was only 14 when I saw this movie (FOLLOWING FRIGHT NIGHT AT A DRIVE INN) and for some reason it struck a happy cord, even though at the time I may have not truly understood the meaning behind it all. Maybe the infectious 80's music did it? Maybe being only 14 and seeing all those HOT bodies shaking to the rhythm ? I had my Dad get me the soundtrack after. It's not like it's a horrible plot, there are worse 80's movies out there. This is John Travolta playing a reporter out to get a story on the GYM CRAZE and the relationships that develop behind it. What's so tacky about that? His acting is good. Jamie Lee Curtis looks awesome and her acting is great too! These two are GREAT together !!All I know is that this movie has stayed with me as one of my favorite 80's feel good movies. When I think of PERFECT it brings up nothing but positive feelings. Ohh the 80's !!!

I was rather excited when I found this 80's trash classic on DVD.. Unfortunately it's in the horrid & worthless pan & scan format.... You know, had this been a 1.85:1 film & it was "full Screen", I could have worked with that and adjusted my HDTV to make it 1.85:1, but this is not the case with this film & most of the DVD's that Sony now releases in the 1.33 ratio... I don't think this film ever had a widescreen version on DVD, which is disappointing.

The fact that any company, this late in the home entertainment game, would release a 2.35:1 film in a lousy 1:33 ratio is not only insulting and reckless, it shows incompetent individuals are making key decisions at the studios and they deserve to lose money.. This is yet another DVD from Sony which is worthless, and anyone who cares about movies, and this film, should avoid this version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Replacing my John Travolta Collection August 13, 2009
By vonnieg
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie is one of the movies I lost in the storm. Jamie Lee Curtis worked her you know what off as an Aerobics Instructor! Glad you guys had one available for me. I don't need to say much about the chin dimpled one...he is awsome!

5.0 out of 5 stars great movie September 1, 2008
Format:VHS Tape
I have read many substandard and insulting reviews about this movie and I have to say "GROW UP" It is amazing how many people take a movie and dismiss it as total garbage. It doesn't matter what it is, It could have been a blockbuster motion picture that sold billions of dollars yet some poor sap will find anything to write that is insulting about any movie. Perfect, was by no means a blockbuster hit nor the greatest movie I have seen, yet it was fun, entertaining and had a good plot. If those people who are paid to criticize movies would take a closer look at the caliber of the movie and it's title and say "oh yeah, now I get it" The word perfect is used quite frequently in the film to generalize a situation or make a sound statement, as does the fit bodies featured in the film. Take a look at this film with an open mind, dismiss it however you choose. I thought it was a good movie. It has all the aspects of human nature we all want to portray but sometimes can't, looks, personality and popularity. It seems those that do the reviews for movies have none of the above.
