Grainy, pan and scan

"Columbia is notorious for choosing full frame (pan and scan) over letterbox or anamorphic widescreen formats. Not only is Perfect NOT perfect because it's pan and scan, but the picture quality is awful--lots of grain, despite the claims about a digitally restored pic on the jacket.Why spend your $$$ on this sloppy reissue when Amazon has thousands more to choose from...."

"I'm so glad 'Perfect' has been released on DVD. I'm sure my video tape is grateful after numerious viewings of this film. I don't see how some people don't like this film, I think it's quiet good. And for all the John Travolta fans out there, you will love the work out sessions in this film."

"How could this movie go wrong, it stars two of my favorite actors. I thought a couple of the scenes were a little over the top. One of the story lines that impressed me was the integrity of John's character in keeping his sources confidential but also being such a sleeze when it came to getting a story. The other story line was the obsession that people have about their bodies as if their appearance was all that mattered and their heads could be full of fluff. I would recommend this movie to anyone for just pure entertainment also. If I wanted totally intellectual movies or programs then I would go and immerse myself in deep thoughts like the scarecrow. If you want a movie that's easy on the eyes and brain that still carries an inner message then this is the one for you."

"I have read many substandard and insulting reviews about this movie and I have to say "GROW UP" It is amazing how many people take a movie and dismiss it as total garbage. It doesn't matter what it is, It could have been a blockbuster motion picture that sold billions of dollars yet some poor sap will find anything to write that is insulting about any movie. Perfect, was by no means a blockbuster hit nor the greatest movie I have seen, yet it was fun, entertaining and had a good plot. If those people who are paid to criticize movies would take a closer look at the caliber of the movie and it's title and say "oh yeah, now I get it" The word perfect is used quite frequently in the film to generalize a situation or make a sound statement, as does the fit bodies featured in the film. Take a look at this film with an open mind, dismiss it however you choose. I thought it was a good movie. It has all the aspects of human nature we all want to portray but sometimes can't, looks, personality and popularity. It seems those that do the reviews for movies have none of the above."
