The Perfect Getaway tells the story of newlyweds Cliff and Cydney who go to the tropical islands of Hawaii for their honeymoon.There they meet Kale and Cleo, two disgruntled hitchhikers and Nick and Gina, two wild but well-meaning spirits who help guide them through the lush jungles.Everything takes a turn for the worst when Cliff and Cydney learn of a grisly murder that occurred nearby.The local police is looking for a couple and Cliff and Cydney new acquaintances happen to fit the description of the killers. The perfect getaway is a little thriller that serves its purpose; it entertains but if you're expecting more then that you're going to be disappointed.There's a big twist that adds originality to this genre which is usually full of clichés, but honestly, I saw it coming. If you're an avid movie goer you'll probably figure it out,if not, chances are you'll be surprised.Having said that the script is very well written and well thought.The locations are beautiful and the acting is great by all parts,specially Steve Zahn who has been getting better and better roles lately.As I said, The Perfect Getaway is an entertaining little thriller but its far from being a great movie. Just manage your expectations and watch it for what it is.
