Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The made-for-TV Perfect People is an engaging rehash of a plot device that has been surefire since the 1925 Charley Chase two-reeler Mighty Like a Moose. After several years of marriage, Perry King and Lauren Hutton have turned into plump, boring middle-agers. With their sex life in shambles, the couple decides to turn their lives around with dieting, exercise, plastic surgery and "tummy tucks." In recapturing their youth, King and Hutton very nearly lose each other. The makeup artists in Perfect People do such a remarkable job in turning the dazzling Lauren Hutton and Perry King into baggy old frumps that, once the characters return to their "normal" selves, interest in the story lags and the film loses its comic momentum.
