Critics Consensus: The Perfect Guy threatens to tip into enjoyably depraved territory, but ultimately settles for timid thriller clichés.

Predictable thriller wastes strong cast; some sex, violence.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Perfect Guy is a standard-issue thriller about a woman (Sanaa Lathan) who's pursued and threatened by her psycho ex-boyfriend until she's forced to fight back. The movie has a general air of menace, and attacks involve weapons (knife, shotgun) and victims being thrown around rooms/down stairs. There are also a few sex scenes (kissing, moaning, moving, but no graphic graphic nudity) and some drinking and swearing (mostly variations of "s--t," plus a memorable use of "f--k").
