For their honeymoon, newlyweds Cliff and Cydney head to the tropical islands of Hawaii. While journeying through the paradisaical countryside the couple encounters Kale and Cleo, two disgruntled hitchhikers and Nick and Gina, two wild but well-meaning spirits who help guide them through the lush jungles. The picturesque waterfalls and scenic mountainsides quickly give way to terror when Cliff and Cydney learn of a grisly murder that occurred nearby and realize that they're being followed by chance acquaintances that suspiciously fit the description of the killers.

Minutes 30-32: Nick talks to Cliff about a dictator's palace with a lock-box full of 'Avengers' memorabilia including 'Iron Man'. Timothy Olyphant was considered for the role of Iron Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe/Avengers series, which stars Chris Hemsworth (Kale) as Thor. See more »
Near the end of the movie, Gina receives a phone call from a supposed AT&T rep asking "about her long distance". 1) In the US, the cell phone carrier either provides or arranges the long distance. The customer has no choice. 2) Doing business in the US, AT&T is required by federal law to subscribe to a frequently updated list of numbers assigned to cell phones. The same law severely restricts who they can make telemarketing calls to. In short, AT&T's long distance division would never call her cell phone asking about long distance. See more »

A Perfect Getaway was nowhere near a perfect film, but it was certainly a good film. The trailers made it out to be a much more non-stop, action thriller than it really was, showing the last 20 minutes. The majority of the film centers around paranoia. It is true though that the plot twist can be seen coming from a mile away, but how it is delivered is where it succeeds. While I personally wasn't surprised, how the twist was presented was quite original and chill-inducing. I'll leave it at that. Where this film really succeeds is in the cinematography and acting, both of which are superb. The locale is beautiful, all the colors are vibrantly displayed and everything looks crisp. There are some scenes with intriguing camera work that works well to add intensity and be intuitive. All the actors really give it their best and create believable characters. Milla was good as usual, but Zahn really surprised me. I never really gave him credit for how good of an actor he is until about now. Overall, it's worth the watch and is ultimately very entertaining with wonderful characters.
