What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Theresa Smith B-grade slasher flick, with a twist
Kirk Honeycutt Well... the scenery was good
Sara Schieron David Twohy’s programmatic vacation thriller A Perfect Getaway is silly and fun and while it has its annoyingly meta moments it certainly won’t leave you bored.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert The plot will require some discussion after the film is over. Is it misleading? Yes. Does it cheat? I think not. It only seems to cheat. That’s part of the effect. All’s fair in love and war, and the plots of thrillers.
Adam Nyman Lean, shapely and unafraid to follow through when the time comes, this is terrifically assured filmmaking from start to finish. And, I might add: what a finish.
C. Fuchs A Perfect Getaway rates as a 5 out of 10 as a viewed-in-the-theater experience, but could drop a point or so once it arrives on home video without the accompanying and appreciative viewing audience.
Tomatometer While smarter than the average slasher film, A Perfect Getaway eventually devolves into a standard, predictable, excessively violent thriller.
