Storyline

Kate is working on a career at Mercer Advertising but is passed up for promotion because she's 'not stable enough', still being single and having no ties to the company. A story is made up about her being engaged to Nick, a guy whom she just met at a friend's wedding, and all seems to work out well for Kate. She even gets the attention of a colleague she had always wanted, but events soon take a dramatic turn, forcing her to 'present' her alleged fiance to her boss.

Almost Perfect!
14 September 2001 | by (London/England) – See all my reviews

Picture Perfect is my favourite Jennifer Aniston movie. Of course, we all know her as "Rachel from Friends" and that's probably the way it will always be. The same with the rest of the Friends cast. (There's absolutely nothing wrong with that though. Friends is the BEST.) I guess, that's why she's been type-casted for the last few years and why most of her films are of a romantic-comedy nature. Still, even though not many of them do very well on release, (That will change soon though.) she still does a good job in all of them, including this one.

Picture Perfect is about Kate, (Jennifer Aniston.) a woman who really can't find love. She does fancy her work colleague Sam, (Kevin Bacon.) but he doesn't really seem interested in her, as she is with him. One day Kate is at a friends wedding and she meets Nick (Jay Mohr.) who is there to film the wedding. They have a chat, have there picture taken together and that's about it. Until, one day at work, Kate's friend Darcy, (Illeana Douglas.) tells everyone that Kate is engaged to Nick, so Kate can get promoted at her work. Everyone obviously believes it, so now it's up to Kate to ask Nick, if he can pretend to be her fiance, for a while and then later on in the 'relationship' they will have a break up in front of everyone . Nick agrees to do this. The only thing is Nick ends up falling for Kate and whilst Kate is 'seeing him,' she ends up sleeping with the guy she fancied in the first place, Sam. He seems to want her now, she's with someone.

The story in the movie is a little unbelievable, but so what, it's a just a movie and it's a very enjoyable one too. It has one of those stories, where you can guess what's going to happen at the end straight away. Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Bacon and Jay Mohr are all great here too. So, if you fancy seeing a romantic comedy (If you've already seen, classic movies like, Sleepless In Seattle and You've Got Mail, etc.) then Picture Picture is the one for you. I rate Picture Perfect an 8/10.
