John Totersohn is tormented by nightmares that are frighteningly real. After seeking help from a psychologist, Dr. Susan Weiss, he pursues a relationship with Sarah Woods, who is vulnerable to John's good looks and boyish ... more »charm. When Sarah gets pregnant unexpectedly, John flies into a rage. Pulling himself together, he proposes to Sarah, but an impending marriage and baby is too much for John. He tightens his hold on Sarah, embarrassing her with her friends, degrading her in front of her parents, and humiliating her sexually. Finally, Sarah gives up. She breaks up with John and confesses she aborted their unborn child. John snaps. Completely paranoid, John becomes convinced that Sarah and Dr. Weiss are involved in a twisted conspiracy against him. Ultimately it is painfully clear that, although we may think we know our partners well when we choose them, our histories define us..."for better or worse." DVD Features:
"Like a good book that you can't put down, A Perfect Fit kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the entire movie. The story is compelling and entertaining. The superb acting by Adrian Grenier and Leila Arcieri made me want to see how their relationship was going to develop, or not, at every turn. Suspenseful, thought provoking, tender, frightening... so much wrapped up in a PERFECT movie. A Perfect Fit is PERFECTLY directed blending PERFECT casting with a PERFECT screenply.
See it today!"
A very enjoyable film

"How refreshing! I just loved the movie, and in particular it was really fun seeing Adrian Grenier in this role. I religiously watch Entourage and Adrian is actually probably my least favorite character in the show. It gave me a renewed respect for him to see the range that he actually has. I think that I will enjoy him a bit more in the TV show now. Back to A Perfect Fit, I think that this movie was paced very well, and I was never bored. I often fall asleep when I watch a film at home, but I did not get the least bit tired during this one. The story kept me interested throughout, and by the end, I was wired. I used to work in a computer store, and I had a coworker who reminded me of that long haired kid who played the part of Ernie. I thought that he was terrific, and I wished that I could have seen more of him in the movie. Leila Arcieri was incredible as Sarah. She could be the sexiest actress I have seen all year. I found her to be very natural, and I believed that she lived such a picture perfect life with her parents, in that pastoral setting with the pool, that it would not occur to her that she could find herself caught in a web of romantic horror. She was born to trust the ones that she loved. LOL I am sounding like a shrink... I don't want to say much more, but see this movie, and if you like an extremely beautiful, sexy sweet hottie, by all means buy this movie."

"Both main characters let you in on how they are feeling. You want so badly for them to find love. John seems innocent in love, but so tormented by his former life it destroys what he wants. You have to see it, I do not want to spoil it for you."

"Have you ever been in a relationship that ended badly? Have you ever decided to overlook some of the icky things in a guy because he was charming and gorgeous, only to regret your decison later? Have you ever been out of control in your relationships? If so, then you should check out this film.
A Perfect Fit is a gem of a movie. It tells the story of John (an excellent performance by the charismatic and gorgeous Adrian Grenier), who suffered tremendous abuse as a child, and is barely holding it together as an adult. The audience can see that he's trouble, but Sarah (played by the gifted beauty Leila Arcieri) can't seem to see beyond his charming exterior. She falls for him, even though there are plenty of warning signs (if you fault her for this, ask yourself if you've ever fallen for the wrong guy!). As things get heavier, John starts to crack which leads to horrible consequences for him, for Sarah, and for the relationship.
I had to force my boyfriend to watch this film, because he didn't think he would like it. But he loves Entourage and so I convinced him. Well, he loved it too! Adrian Grenier is so different in this movie than in Entourage. It's great to see that he has a wide range of abilities and tremendous depth as an actor. Leila Arcieri is great too ... my boyfriend is now obsessed with her.
A Perfect Fit will make you be more cautious when you are heading into a relationship. Or, if you're like me, it will make you appreciate what you have. Congratulations to the filmmakers for making an enjoyable film that, while it makes you uncomfortable, will ring true for a lot of women (and men) out there."
I loved this true to life movie

"What I liked so much about A Perfect Fit is that it made me feel so much. The film is clearly a sad story about two people who desperately want to find the love that they feel will complete their lives. Ultimately, it is a sad story, but along the way, there are some great laughs, some moments of suspense, and it is all done in a way that made me not want the movie to end. The actors are beautiful to look at, and they seem like real people. I haven't seen them act before, but I am going to look for them in the future. This is a movie that I found myself thinking about long after it ended."
