Friends star Jennifer Aniston made her debut as the leading lady of a feature film in this romantic comedy. Kate (Aniston) is an art director with an advertising agency whose personal and professional life is stuck in neutral; while her work is good, her boss Mr. Mercer (Kevin Dunn) won't give her a promotion, and while Kate is attracted to co-worker Sam (Kevin Bacon), he's not interested in her. Kate learns that Mercer is loath to promote single people, because without permanent attachments they're free to leave whenever they wish. Kate's friend Darcy (Illeana Douglas) comes up with a possible solution: use a photo of Kate with handsome stranger Nick (Jay Mohr) to convince Mercer that she's engaged to be married. The ruse works -- Kate gets her promotion, and Sam, who's attracted to women who are already spoken for, starts showing her some attention. But soon Mercer wants to meet Kate's husband-to-be; Kate tracks down Nick and persuades him to pose as her intended for an evening, but Nick decides at the end of the night that he's in love with her. Picture Perfect was written and directed by Glenn Gordon Caron, who created the TV series Moonlighting.

Picture Perfect stars Jennifer Aniston as an ambitious advertising employee named Kate who is growing professionally in her career and manages to strengthen her talent due to immense dedication to her job. One of the major problems; On the plus side, she is in little danger of being fired by her boss Mr. Mercer (Kevin Dunn) but getting the projects and/or lucrative assignments seems out of reach for Kate due to her boss’s preference for promoting employees who are in relationships. In Mr. Mercer’s defense, he at least avoids further undermining Kate’s self-confidence and/or professional standing by strategically explaining why he is reluctant to assign her the more lucrative/high-profile projects/assignments with her currently being single. From my modest perspective, the perspective of her being judged due to being single is not that far-fetched because it is common knowledge (even in the year 2015) that many women (even here in the U.S.) are still seen as less than a whole person if they choose to focus more on improving their economic/professional lives while being child-free even for responsible reasons (i.e. they know that it would be too risky and unfair to the potential child(children) due to being self-aware that they are facing at least 15-20 years of repaying their student loans and figuring out legal ways to move up from minimum wage status in the private sector to further build up their savings cushion). Please know that I have nothing against mothers and children, especially because my late adoptive mother legally took me as her own daughter even though she did not give birth to me. It is just that there is proof in what I say because the character of Kate’s mom Rita Moseley (Olympia Dukakis who I’m aware was only doing her job) is shown (in the film) making it clear that one of the reasons why she is eager for Kate to partner up soon is because she dreams of grandchildren from the daughter she loves dearly. Kate demonstrates her talent when she pitches content for Gulden mustard. She experiences the epiphany needed to strengthen the brand of Gulden mustard when she explains how they can make the connection between model Cindy Crawford’s success, her biochemistry major in college, and her original background of coming from outside of Hollywood. Kate’s friend Sela (Anne Twomey) is happy for Kate’s professional contributions and even playfully teases her about her crush on fellow advertising employee Sam Mayfair (Kevin Bacon). However, Sela, well-intentioned as she is, also ends up indirectly leaving Kate to brush up on her skills as a storyteller when she manages to link Nick (Jay Mohr) and Kate as a couple. On the plus side, Sela indirectly helps Kate to get the more lucrative projects that she has been after for some time. However, Kate has to come up with a plan/scheme quick because she only met videographer Nick briefly at a wedding and has not seen him in person since. The song Say What You Want by Texas plays in snippets briefly during the movie and then in entirety after the end of the Picture Perfect movie.
