Everyone should expect that in a film called 'Perfectly Normal' no one actually is, and sure enough, the dull routine of everyman Michael Riley is upended by an amiable, overweight con artist (Robbie Coltrane), who before long is coaxing Riley out of his sociopathic shell and into a dress to sing an aria from Bellini's 'Norma' at an opera-themed restaurant. The film obviously wants to be eccentric and unpredictable, but the effort only makes it look strained, although director Yves Simoneau tries hard to juice up the scenario with enough camera tricks to make even Spike Lee dizzy. There's an irrelevant romantic subplot, and the restaurant scheme is just plain silly, but any movie mixing opera and ice hockey can't be all bad. Simoneau shows some genuine affection for his characters (Riley and Coltrane together resemble a New Wave Laurel and Hardy), but in the end the film delivers exactly what the title promises: an offbeat but unexceptional comedy.
