    Jennifer Aniston is a friend in need of a movie script that will really let her talent blossom. Picture Perfect is too TV-ish and timid a romantic farce to do the trick. show more

    Ruthe Stein San Francisco Chronicle

    Another romantic comedy about a career woman who has everything except a man, is Jennifer Aniston's attempt to break out of her TV role. But she doesn't have the magic on the big screen to make us forget where she came from. show more

    The best romantic comedies intoxicate like vintage champagne. Picture Perfect, on the other hand, is like a wine spritzer. Insubstantial and oversweet, it still refreshes as a midsummer brain cooler. [1 August 1997, p. 3D] show more

    Unfortunately, Picture Perfect uses embarrassing contrivances to sabotage what should have been a pleasant excursion down a familiar road. show more

    It's a shame the plot is so contrived, because parts of this movie are really pretty good. show more

    Adam Smith Empire

    Aniston deports herself competently, here showing us nothing she hasn't on Friends, and Bacon is pretty much on autopilot as the company stud but it is Mohr who actually shines, skilfully giving an underwritten role a genuinely deft sense of nobility and charm. show more

    Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle

    The result is a vacuous feel-good movie that leaves you feeling nothing at all. show more

    Lisa Schwarzbaum Entertainment Weekly

    Another contemporary story about a woman with a successful career punished with a lousy personal life. show more

    Keith Phipps The A.V. Club

    Though "extremely mediocre" may seem like an oxymoron, no phrase better defines Picture Perfect. Aside from wearing, with visual discomfort, a series of absurdly revealing dresses, Aniston does little to distance herself from her "Friends" persona with this slightly less likable character. show more
