Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"John Travolta continues his wearisome trek through America's fleeting enthusiasms, though this time he arrives a day late (wasn't aerobics over a couple of years before this?) and a few dollars short."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"Perfect is too superficially knowing to be a camp classic, but it's an unintentionally hilarious mixture of muddled moralizing and all-too-contemporary self-promotion."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"A vanity project that went nowhere."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"Reveals the health club fad to be a hall of mirrors filled with self-absorbed individuals."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Pic is guilty of the sins it condemns - superficiality, manipulation and smugness."
