This is a very sweet romantic comedy that stars Jennifer Aniston. She portrays an ad agency copywriter that is involved with fellow costar Kevin Bacon. He is the company bad boy, and she is just too good for him. When she gets involved with Jay Mohr, she finds herself falling for him. I was surprised to find I liked Jay Mohr's character. I have never liked him in anything I have seen him in, but this is definitely the exception. This movie is enjoyable, but very predictable.

I loved this movie. After renting a string of movies while recovering from surgery I liked this one so much I went out and bought it. Jennifer Anniston is very good in the comedic role, the same sort of roll as on Friends, but she is much less of an airhead character in this movie. But, my favorite in the movie is Jay Mohr. He spends much of the movie with "Puppy Dog Eyes" for Jennifer but holds his ground. Excellent change from his role in Jerry McGuire.
Basic story is Girl (Kate) wants Boy (Sam) and job recognition, girl isn't getting either. Girl's friend leads people to believe that she is engaged to another boy (Jay playing Nick) who she has only met once at a wedding. Nick gets famous and Kate's life gets complicated. She tries to get Nick to come play the part (for money, which he refuses) and he agrees to "come to dinner". Meanwhile Nick is falling hard for Kate but she doesn't want it. Or does she? As with many real life situations she doesn't realize what she is missing until it is to late (or is it?). Also thrown in is some really interesting information about teh dog-eat-dog world of promotions general and specifically the advertising business.
If you want a light hearted "chick flick" (as my husband would call it) get some popcorn and definately rent this one!
One side interesting fact. One of my other favorite "feel good movies" is the Cutting Edge where Moira Kelly plays Kate Mosley the skater. Picture Perfect has Jennifer Anniston playing Kate Mosley the Creative Director for an Ad Agency.

PICTURE PERFECT is a fun romantic comedy starring Jennifer Aniston. She's having an office romance with Sam (Kevin Bacon) who likes to have no string affairs. She wants to advance in her advertising job, and to do so her friend lies and says she is engaged to this guy who she met at a wedding and got photographed with. His name is Nick (Jay Mohr). When her boss wants to meet him she has to find him and get him to play with the ruse. She becomes very manipulative and there's a few twists and turns along the way. Aniston was really good in this movie. A nice romantic comedy.

Jennifer Aniston used her best acting ability. She was just as good in this film as she was on the Friends T.V.show. She showed much of her personality in this film. She can be strong and assertive but at the same time, she could be humorous and fun to be with. If you don't want to buy the movie at least rent it.

Four CONSPIRATORIAL Stars. This is an enjoyable romantic comedy about an advertising junior executive on the rise through the ranks when she hits the "glass ceiling". Her career is stalled and she learns it is because she needs more permanent responsibility in her personal life, like her co-workers, so she decides to fake it but her plans unravel. Late in the movie, the 'gathering' scene is a hoot. Starring Jennifer Aniston while she was co-starring on the "Friends" TV show; actor, comedian and Fox Sports radio host Jay Mohr who is outstanding; as are the trio of Kevin Bacon, Illeana Douglas, and Olympia Dukakis. Directed by Glenn Caron. Very Definitely Recommended. Four CONNIVING Stars! (20th Century Fox. Rated PG-13. Color. CC. Time-1:42.)

I love romantic comedies, and this is one of my favorites. Jennifer is delightful and gorgeous in this film. The problem with the DVD is it was released in 2003 and has black bars on the sides of the image. It is not anamorphic/enhanced for 16x9 as more recent dvds are. For some reason Fox has not produced a new anamorphic version or blu-ray. Maybe someday. Also be aware that the "Picture Perfect" dvd that comes in The Jennifer Aniston Collection is the same as this one.
Terrific movie, but in this old dvd version, not "picture perfect."

This is more predictable Hollywood romance, with a dash of semi-realism. While it is noteworthy to point out the strong female character that Jennifer Aniston plays, the script eventually falls into the classic mold of misconstrued circumstances leading (hopefully) to outright laughter. While the laughs never really come, the romance between Mrs. Aniston and Jay Mohr is charged with some believable chemistry. These two people really like each other, and not just platonically. Some of the potential laughs are forced, like every scene involving Olympia Dukakis and her loud over-acting. Kevin Bacon really doesn't come across as a believable love-interest, either. It would have been better had he been a complete slimeball. There are no characters to either love nor hate, and only the lead female character to admire; and for all the heterosexual men in the world, only Jay Mohr's character to envy. Jennifer Aniston eventually has to carry this film until Jay Mohr shows up, so the first 30 minutes are laborious. But once the chemistry begins and the embers start to glow, the movie reveals a kind of honesty that is refreshing. This is a solid rental; or if you are a hopeless/hopeful romantic, this just might be your cup of coffee.
