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.

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 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 !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars are you kidding me? December 11, 2010
anyone who watched this for plot and charecter development please, either get over yourself or simply step in front of the next bus you see. i like john travolta as an actor, well i have liked him for the last 15 years or so, i think he can play a bad guy with the best of them, but i have been ruined since seeing jamie running around in spandex for the entire movie. her in a unitard sweating and gyrating around is reason enough to buy 20 copies of this movie just to make sure you have one to replace when you wear out the first copy. the only thing even close to this as sexy is her striptease in "true lies" and even then its a far 2nd. i am a sexist and i am ok with that label women as "perfect" as JLC deserve the admiration that only a sexist can supply
JLC if you read these, you single handedly made spandex and lycra a verb noun and adjective all at once and areobics a form of foreplay
i thank you

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 Perfect 80's flash back movie! January 11, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I happened across this movie when my sister bought me the sound track on vinyl at the local Goodwill. I didnt remember the movie but she insists she remembered it. We decided to see if Amazon had it available. It did and so we gave it a shot. This movie is the epitome of 80's nonsense! Leotards at the gym, bad hair, short shorts... The story line is actually pretty good and it kept my ( and my sister - both close to 40 in age) attention all the way through. John Travolta and Jamie Lee Curtis both young and beautiful! There is so much gratuitous gyrating and grinding that it is almost embarrassing - but still very fun and funny and definitely worth the price... although I doubt I will watch it again. If you grew up in the 80's and want a good laugh, Buy it! Watch it! Enjoy it!

It is one of the worst movies ever made and it is all the better for it. Jann Wenner's cameo must be seen to be believed.
