Riley, bet him that if he sticks to one woman for one month, he's bound to get attached. Charlie denies this until he crosses paths with the beautiful and mysterious Eva, played by singer/actress Cassie. They may agree to a casual affair, but eventually Charlie is questioning whether he may actually want more.

You Can Leave Your Brain at the Door

You can leave your brain at the door before viewing this very glossy and superficial rom-com. It does have some dialogue from time to time that is not completely shallow, and there are some comedic elements that work, especially towards the end of the movie. There's also explicit and raw language throughout and several sex scenes. Paula Patton, in a supporting role, "lights up the screen" and enhances the film whenever she appears on screen. Overall, if you're looking for any sense of reality in a movie then this is probably not your best choice, but if you just want to numb those brain cells for an hour and half and enter a glitzy and glamorous fantasy world, then this one may be more to your liking.

I loved it

Call me nuts all you want but I am living this exact same situation in my present life and this movie opened my eyes a LOT and it is basically telling me to not look for this guy because he will come to me when he's ready for me. In the meantime... here I am...watching more movies and reviewing them. If only I could get paid for it. I loved the cast, the script, the flow but most importantly, the Queen herself was involved in it. QL can do NO wrong in my eyes. If it wasn't because I stayed at a hotel last week, I wouldn't have seen it. I thank the radio station that drove me to that hotel that night and led me to a very comfy room to rest and watch movies. My favorite thing to do aside from listening to music.

I know some people will really enjoy this but as for me it was a movie I have seen a million times and didn't really stand out

"No strings that's what we said. You knew what we were getting into." Charlie (Jenkins) is living his single life. He can do what he wants, be with who he wants and lives by his unbending rules. When his friends call him on his lifestyle choices he sets out to prove he can be anything he wants. When Eva (Ventura) enters the picture he decides to accept a bet that he can have an actual relationship for a few weeks, Charlie didn't realize what would happen. This is not a bad movie, but almost a little too generic to be good. There are a few twists in this to make it a little different, but really 10 minutes into the movie you can predict what is going to happen and you will be about 90% correct. The acting is OK and the writing is OK, but that's the big problem with the movie. It is just OK. Nothing all that exciting and entertaining and I found myself daydreaming a few times and wasn't paying attention to some scenes, but because of the generic aspect I didn't feel like I missed anything. Overall, I know some people will really enjoy this but as for me it was a movie I have seen a million times and didn't really add enough to make it stand out. I give this a C.

Not perfect in anyway

The movie tries hard not to be your typical Romantic comedy. It's a little too up beat and hip and does not focus on the romance or the comedy as much as it should Charlie is the archetype alpha male with the fly job the fly crib and a odd hang up about settling down that makes him vastly different than his two married friends, and gives us a bunch of scenes of them sitting around drinking lattes or working out where they can debate about this. Than he meets that chick who changes his mind about it. I got to admit, that I did like how the situation develop, it was an interesting twist. But Charlie does follow the formula for the rom-com lead to the tea, making it hard for Terrence J to shine his charm through the staleness of it. I did enjoy seeing him try, however. Paula Patton's role as Charlie's sister is way too short for it to be such a key note that it was. It's almost like they added it afterwards in order to make the movie make more sense than it would have without. I wished it was funnier than it was, too. Not even Donald Faison whose job it was to be funny as Charlie's best friend, was making me laugh. Maybe I should not say anything about French Montana's over dressed cameo appearance. He was not in the movie cause he can act, but man, could they not find someone better on camera for this? Even the hot love scenes were kinda bland after awhile. Overall, I did like how the story played out, not enough to make it worthy of my cash at the box office. Catch it when it comes on cable late at night.

Not worth your time

I am a movie goer reviewer so there will not be an in-depth a analysis of production or the like. Advertising for this movie was quite misleading. By giving it the title 'The Perfect Match' and showing clips with Cassie and Terrence J engaging in romantic encounters, they give the impression that the focus of the movie will be them and the evolution of their relationship. However, the audience hears more about the wedding plans of supporting characters are we are supposed to believe that Cassie and Terrence J's characters actually fall in love. Let's see...they had sex in a public bathroom, also in his home, made out in a pool and he photographed her. That's about it. Now how is that he fell in love with her and was heartbroken to the point that he said damaging things to those he loved? This movie seemed like an excuse to cast 2 good looking people to make out - and one of them lacks any type of acting skills. I cannot recommend this move to anyone who desires to be entertained.
