Editorial Reviews

Drew (Martin Henderson), a charming law school student, falls in love with Julia (Piper Perabo) a strong-willed and beautiful co-ed, just two months before their graduation. Not wanting to part ways, Drew impulsively asks Julia, his first real love, to move with him to Los Angeles. Enamored, Julia agrees. Drew quickly adapts to LA living and the two form friendships with their quirky neighbors (Jennifer Tilly and Artie Lange) and a host of outrageous LA characters. But trouble soon finds its way into the couple’s lives. Drew becomes infatuated with his new job – and the Hollywood scene and Julia begins to notice her boyfriend’s wandering eye. With their relationship at the breaking point the two come to understand that living together has bitter and sweet moments but love is strengthened by experiencing both. An honest, romantic comedy with both hysterical and tender moments, Drew and Julia reaffirm that Perfect Opposites not only attract, but they stick when true love is the glue.

Fun, kind of predictable chick flick to be enjoyed when you need a feel good kind of show. I enjoyed it and will watch it again when I feel the need to just lay back and enjoy a movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars a mixed bag but a bit better than expected February 7, 2005

In "Perfect Opposites," Drew and Julia, two college grads from "a school in the Midwest," decide to head to L.A. to start life together as a committed couple (not much of a move, as it turns out, since the college scenes were actually filmed at USC). However, in no time at all, the pressures of trying to establish their careers, combined with Drew's innate fear of commitment, end up putting a serious strain on the relationship.

"Perfect Opposites" is a fairly conventional romantic comedy that does at least offer a few flashes of insight into the complexities of man/woman relationships, even though the motivations for some of the characters' actions are strangely arbitrary and inscrutable at times. Nevertheless, as the complications arise, we find ourselves identifying with the two main characters more than we expect to at the beginning of the story. Unfortunately, the film insists on parading a bunch of cutesy L.A. stereotypes before the camera, severely undercutting the sense of reality it establishes in the scenes between Julia and Drew. There is one very funny scene in which Drew's old college roommate lays out his theory about where men and women fit in the evolutionary scheme of things, but the film doesn't achieve that level of comic cleverness very often.

As Drew and Julia, Martin Henderson and Piper Perabo make an attractive, likable couple, and the secondary performers do what they can with the characters they've been handed.

"Perfect Opposites" is a hard film to call because it feels both artificial and realistic in roughly equal measure. It takes a slightly more mature view of the world than most films of its type, building to a final scene that is a tad more thoughtful than what we are accustomed to in a romantic comedy. For that reason alone it deserves some recognition.

3.0 out of 5 stars Another somebody done somebody wrong story April 3, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is another love story that is just OK. I can't really decide what went wrong for me, but I know that the stars of this movie are much better actors than this. Piper moves across country with her boyfriend (Artie Lange). She gave up family, a job, etc., for him. What happens? He decides to leave her and Piper is left heart broken. Piper moves on and marries someone else. Artie is crushed that Piper has married because the longer he is away from her, he realizes that he really can't live without her. Piper divorces 3 years later and their friendship rekindles. Will the 2nd time around be better than the first time around?

3.0 out of 5 stars mediocre May 5, 2010
Perfect Opposites shows a romantic comedy that focuses on just how lousy, inconsiderate, and dishonest some men can be. It's also a film that doesn't really have *any* good storytelling qualities whatsoever. Even the laughs are few and far between.

The character who portrays the man of the relationship is shown as a complete moron most of the time. It's amazing just how clueless and moronic he is whenever he's around his girlfriend. He doesn't *deserve* to be in a relationship. Anyone who's that clueless honestly doesn't deserve such a hot girlfriend.

At least his girlfriend is able to read between the lines and see every single one of his blunders. After all, anyone who goes out of his way to impress a girl, ultimately dragging her into a situation she doesn't belong in nor WANTS to be a part of absolutely *deserves* what happens at the end of the film.

Other than that, the storytelling throughout the movie is basically pointless because it's so dull. Who cares what the point is? Most of the characters are boring, including all the main ones. The storyline tries to focus on the man and woman living together and starting a life together like any other normal people, but it's not particularly interesting either.

I'm only giving Perfect Opposites 3 stars out of 5 instead of a big zero because it did try to actually go somewhere some of the time, and of course, for the unintentionally cluelessness on the part of the boyfriend. Avoid.

4.0 out of 5 stars Realistic and refreshing romantic comedy August 1, 2006
This movie is a must-see for all teenagers with a romanticized view of relationships. Perfect Opposites is funny as well as realistic in its portrayal of the ups and downs of intimate relationships. But if you like feel-good, cliche' fairy tales, you might not like this one. It's similar to The Break-Up. Piper Perabo and Martin Henderson are adorable as the lead characters of the film. The rest of the cast is great too.

1.0 out of 5 stars They're both clueless November 20, 2011
It tries to be innovative, but starting the movie 1/4 of the way through and then going back to the beginning has been done to death. So has the voice-over. So to me, this movie had two strikes against it from the very start.

I was still willing to give it a try and hope it would get better. It didn't.

There was no passion or excitement. There was no outside or situational interference. It was just two shallow people so wrapped up in their own wants and needs that they couldn't give a fig about each other.

So to me Perfect Opposites wasn't a Romance OR a Comedy. It was a long, dreary mess about 2 people who refused to accept any responsibility for their trail of broken relationships, and just kept blaming the other person.
