adam e' un giornalista sempre in cerca di un buon "scoop" per la rivista "rolling stone" per cui lavora. mentre e' lanciato sulla pista di un uomo d'affari di assai dubbia reputazione - joe mckenzie - al quale riesce a strappare una esclusiva ed esplosiva intervista (con tanto di nastri registrati), il suo direttore lo invia in california per vedere che articolo si puo' fare in materia di aerobica. cosi' adam, messi al sicuro i nastri relativi al primo e ben piu' impegnativo argomento, si da' un gran da fare negli ambienti del culturismo alla moda. egli scopre un mondo in buona parte inesplorato, molto meno sportivo e pulito del credibile; contatta un'istruttrice dello "sports connections", una palestra dove si fanno allenamenti massacranti (ma anche proficui e disinvolti incontri), si innamora di lei e ne e' ricambiato, ma deve prometterle, comunque, che nel futuro servizio lei non comparira' ne' con dichiarazioni, ne' in fotografia. jessie, infatti, la bionda docente, gia' in passato ebbe a fare spiacevoli esperienze per indiscrezioni giornalistiche. e adam le fa una promessa formale. tuttavia, proprio mentre all'udienza della corte contro mckenzie, adam, rifiutandosi di esibire i nastri (che fanno gola anche al servizio segreto), viene incriminato, la "rolling stone" ha la spregiudicata idea di pubblicare il suo servizio californiano, in un testo manipolato, deformato e, soprattutto, lesivo della sfortunata jessie, la quale si ritrova tradita una seconda volta dalla stampa. ma la coerenza e correttezza palesate da adam nel processo, la convincono che il giornalista e' stato vittima di una macchinazione. assolto mckenzie e rimesso adam in liberta', i due si ritroveranno ai cancelli della prigione, piu' sicuri l'uno dell'altro e piu' innamorati che mai.

A journalist (John Travolta) for Rolling Stone magazine works on two stories simultaneously. One, the case of a businessman (Kenneth Welsh) busted for drugs by the federal government and two, on the Los Angeles health club phenomenon which have turned into the singles bars of the 1980s. Based on an actual series of articles from Rolling Stone, PERFECT was much maligned when released and not undeservedly so, I doubt if anyone who has not lived through the L.A. gymrat obsession of turning working out into a social life in their quest for the body beautiful, will appreciate the film's ironies and wit (which granted, are few and far between). The film is weakened by splitting its focus into the two plot lines, both suffering and adding an already unnecessary length to the film. There's an amusing sequence with Travolta and Jamie Lee Curtis (in sensational shape) as an aerobic instructor simulating sex while working out but the sequence goes on for far too long eventually wearing out its welcome. A little goes a long way. Directed by James Bridges (THE CHINA SYNDROME) and with Laraine Newman (who steals the film), Marilu Henner, Anne De Salvo, Jann Wenner, Lauren Hutton and Mathew Reed.

Fortunately, unlike its pan and scan U.S. counterpart, the British Sony DVD is in the proper anamorphic wide screen (2.35) ratio and a solid transfer.

Oh how I miss the eighties! a light-hearted, easy going, fun film with a few serious moments thrown in. It's an enjoyable blast from the past. Jaime Lee Curtis is just breathtakingly gorgeous and if you find the film a little cheesy, then the music should keep you entertained and in good spirits. '(Closest Thing To) perfect' by Jermaine Stewart, 'I Sweat (Going Through The Motions)' by Nona Hendryx and 'Hot Lips' by Lou Reed are just a few of the tracks on offer. You may even enjoy this film better if you watch whilst using that rowing machine or treadmill you bought a number of years ago. You know the ones gathering dust unused in the garage at the moment! A pleasent, enjoyable film. Enjoy.

I'm a huge fan of all things 1980s so with that in mind I rented this classic for pure retro enjoyment. I didn't really do any research on the film prior to watching so I was a little suprised that it was somewhat 'meatier' than I'd initially envisaged in so far as the plot is more multi-stranded than first imagined. The film's premise is that Rolling Stone Magazine journalist Adam Lawrence (Travolta) is involved in a complex case featuring drugs and a wealthy businessman, during this difficult case he happens upon the 80s trend for the body beautiful and with this in mind travels to LA where he bases his article around the 'health club being the singles bar of the 80s'. He bases himself in 'The Sport Collection' health club which employs star aerobics instructor and former would-be Olympian swimmer Jessie (Jamie Lee Curtis).

Obviously, this being Hollywood Adam and Jessie become involved but with a two hour running time there are lots of twists and turns along the way. The soundtrack features some rather natty synth pop tunes by the likes of Jermaine Stewart and The Thompson Twins, which is always good. I also liked the thought that Eric Prydz's 'Call on Me' video was definately inspired by this film, which is something I must mention to my husband....
