Perfect Reviews:

A legendary flop and a legendarily terrible movie, this mess is part three in a career-killing trilogy of Travolta's that also contains "Staying Alive" and "Two of a Kind". It took him a long time to bounce back. It also stalled Curtis's career for a while until "A Fish Named Wanda" rescued her. The story, such as it is, concerns Travolta, a Rolling Stone magazine reporter, looking for a storyline angle within a large gymnasium at the height of the aerobics and fitness craze. He's already working on other more necessary story, but wants this as a back-up in situation an all-important interview falls through. He zeroes in on high-profile aerobics instructor Curtis who has a large following (which often kisses her on the mouth following one of her workouts!) Unfortunately, she's had a major disaster with a reporter in the past and resists being interviewed for his story. In order for there to be a movie, he gotta wear her down and receive her assistance even though there are 90 another instructors at this mega-gym. The movie is very unfocused and disjointed throughout. It tries to be too many things: a reflection of investigative journalism, an ethics drama, an examination of self-esteem issues, a melody video crash-course in Jazzercise and, most obviously, a jiggle film with emphasis on lycra-clad spread legs and tight behinds. The script is so crass and stupid with ludicrous lines like, "You're a sphincter muscle..." (this one is repeated often!) and unnecessary subplots which lead nowhere. Travolta is awful. He speaks his lines with his mouth almost open, stares blankly with no skill at conveying what's on his mind and, in the movies most celebratedly horrendous scene, gyrates his bulging crotch at the camera advertisement nauseam while sweat trickles down his pale, clammy face and body. Curtis looks very new and pretty most of the movie (if a bit sexually ambiguous) eschewing the large hair and massive make-up of the times. Her hero is a tiny too self-righteous, but her acting is better than anyone else around. Wenner, a non-actor, provides a jarring presence whenever he appears because he (along with few another "real" folks cast in the film) hasn't got the polish to really sell his role even though it reflects his position in true life (as the founder of Rolling Stone!) Most of the another actors in the movie either overact horrendously or flat-line. More importantly, the audience does not care about anyone in the movie and so does not care when different happenings and revelations come about. There is some inherent camp value in revisiting the hilarious workout clothes of the 80's and in hearing the bouncy, tacky melody of the era, but the film is method too long for it's topics matter and the melody montages wear out their welcome very quickly. And for all the sweating and gyration, there are no sex scenes in the film. Look out for pansexual Burt Reynolds look-alike (and alleged Travolta bed partner) Barresi in the cast as a gym rat eager to present off his body.


Really, "Perfect" is not the tactical warhead everyone seems to be implying. This is not on the same lvl as 80s catastrophes like "Megaforce", "Grease 2", "Howard the Duck", or (heaven support us) "Staying Alive". "Perfect" is nothing more than tragic misfire from extremely talented director James Bridges ("The Paper Chase", "Urban Cowboy") that makes the dire mistake of treating the aerobics, health club fad of the mid-80s as a serious cultural phenomenon (ugh).It also helped to derail John Travolta's career for the better part of a decade - sad, because all one has to do is take a look at his outstanding performances in "Blow Out" and "Urban Cowboy" and realize that his acting in "Perfect" was just fine (if a bit weak key). It's a shame, he should have made a lot of nice films while he was stuck in dreck like "The Experts" and strange late 80s Altman theatre pieces like Pinter's "The Dumb Waiter" (with Tom Conti!).Travolta plays a Rolling Stone journalist hot on the trail of a large storyline about how health clubs are the fresh pick-up joints, replacing singles bars. He meets "The Pied Piper of aerobics teachers" Jamie Lee Curtis, a former Olymic swimmer who was once burned by a journalist over a piece about how she was having an affair with her coach. Of course, she and Travolta hook up and Travolta meets some another people who frequent the gym, who are like helping characters in a David Lynch film (I'm unsure if the director intended to portray them as weird as they come off).Real-life Rolling Stone editor Jann Wenner shows up to essentially enjoy himself (not very well) and, in the film's most laughable detail, Travolta writes a ver of his storyline portraying health clubs as Emersonian watering holes of the future (or something like that).It's all type of bloated and weird, but really not that bad. Travolta's now cute good. Jamie Lee Curtis looks nice but comes off as slightly grouchy, but she was probably directed that way.Don't miss Travolta's notorious pelvic thrust sequence (you can't miss it).


This movie was definitely the final nail in Travolta's metaphorical coffin having been preceded by 'Staying Alive' and 'Two of a Kind'. Upon first viewing of the film, I was dumbstruck to search what I thought was Travolta acting poorly and the storyline seemed to be absolutely forgettable and pointless! But after persevering with the film a couple of times more, I enjoyed it. I even changed my mind on Travolta's performance and realised what he now tried to do-a mixture of anger, frustration, fatigue, mild charm-all of which are attributed to a workaholic Rolling Stone journalist such as his hero Adam. The melody has a pulsating beat although I do admit some songs on the film's soundtrack are better than others but the melody does seem to carry this movie along. Curtis is dazzling in her role as the 'Aerobics Pied Piper.'(Her sexy body and nice legs are a plus for this movie.) Jann Wenner deserves unique mention even though he's probably testing himself considering he was then the editor and actually owner of Rolling Stone Magazine. This is a true 80s movie, and a strange theme involving both journalism and aerobics somehow merging together. Travolta and Curtis both do a nice job in their roles bringing a contrast of characters in their relationship. I didn't however like the beginning or ending credits at all. The beginning was just primary and static-a list of credits vs a plain background. The ending wasn't nice either--Berlin's 'Masquerade' song (which is, in my opinion, a low url in the film's soundtrack), plays on while ALL of the key characters do aerobics...Is that realistic? Bizarre. I rather liked it when Curtis meets Travolta at the end and they drive off. There, is when it could have ended. But I guess all in all, an entertaining mid-80s movie.
