They're so perfect they seem fake. It's like they're in technicolor or something. I don't know their names so I just call them the Browns.

Zoe Kazan and Jake Johnson are stunning in this film!
A quirky gem in the vein of Safety Not Guaranteed, Ruby Sparks, Drinking Buddies, Enough Said and The Spectacular Now. Although the storyline may be a bit out there, it is very believable and enjoyable.
There are some poignant moments that are beautifully portrayed and you can relate to many of the characters in some way.
The Perfect One is worth the watch.
p.s. I loved the wardrobe they used in this film, think Girls meets Pretty Little Liars. I was upset there weren't more special features on the DVD!
