Jamie Lee Curtis,
What did the picture's "Perfect" title mean to star Jamie Lee Curtis? She said: "There is no such thing as being perfect "but I think that perfection is the right that people have to be whatever they want to be. That's what's perfect in my eyes. And the fact that people are entitled to that right is what [my character] Jessie stands up for in the movie. Defending one's right to be whatever you want to be is what Jessie Wilson is all about".

Carly Simon throws her drink in Adam's face over a piece he wrote about her. He later tells his boss at Rolling Stone he has a deal with Simon & Schuster. Simon & Schuster was co-founded by Carly's father. Given Carly's obvious disdain for Adam, it's highly unlikely Simon & Schuster would publish him. See more »

Being that I was in my early 20s I remember very well the 80s, which was I need to be perfect decade. Smarts took a back-seat to buff & tan. Everyone was pumping iron, getting tan, blow-drying their hair, checking their look in the mirror, and flaunting their bods. Gosh! Darn! It sounds exactly like South Beach today!! Nothing has changed!
What is a shock is how badly John Travola and Jaime Lee Curtis have aged. They were both so "perfect" in 1985. There's no excuse for a "sex-Symbol" like Johnny T. to have gotten so bloated and out-of-shape. Hey, don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan of Travolta. However his best work(aside from Pulp Fiction) was made in the late 70s and early 80s-Carrie, Saturday Night Fever, Grease, Urban Cowboy, and even for its time, Perfect.
And Jaime Lee was so beautiful, so well-built, and so sexy. Oh well, thank goodness for videos.
Funny how today's generation thinks the out-fits in this film were so strange. I look at the out-fits today and I think they are really "stranger" than anything we wore in the 80s.
