Picture Perfect

Genre: Romance, Comedy; Starring: Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Bacon, Jay Mohr; Director: Glenn Gordon Caron; Author: Glenn Gordon Caron, Paul Slansky, Arleen Sorkin; Runtime (in minutes): 105; MPAA Rating: PG-13; Distributor: 20th Century Fox Film Corporation

This feature-length vehicle for Jennifer Aniston, the perky Friends star, truly seems to belong on the small screen. For one thing, Picture Perfect’s premise—contrived by director-cowriter Glenn Gordon Caron, the creator of Moonlighting—is a ready-for-prime-time confection: To advance her career and entice an office lothario (Kevin Bacon), Aniston?s Kate claims to be engaged to an out-of-towner she hardly knows, a wedding videographer played with quiet sweetness by Jay Mohr. From there, this warm and cozy, predictable tale goes down as easily as tapioca pudding. Just as with a 22-minute sitcom, Caron seems to say, all?s well because the end?s swell. But that picture of life is just a little too perfect. B-
