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.

Loved It!
3 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched Picture Perfect today. I was expecting an okay movie, nothing special. But the movie I watched wasn't okay. It was GREAT. I'm one of those people that usually stops a movie midway because I'm bored of it. I didn't even want to get up because I was so into the movie.

The movie is basically about Kate who works for a advertising company. Her boss basically says to her that she can't get this promotion because she doesn't have a husband. So Kate and her friend created this crazy plan to pretend that Kate is engaged to a guy she actually barely knows. What happens after that is very exciting and you'll have to watch the movie to find out.

Now I have heard a lot of people say that this movie was predictable. During the entire movie, I had no idea what was going to happen. I guess some people are just good at figuring out that kind of stuff? Well this movie was very good. I recommend it to anyone. It's a great Saturday night film. =)
