Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that A Perfect Story is a lighthearted romantic comedy that takes place in Spain and focuses on two people in their late 20s who meet after respective breakups and develop a plan to make their exes jealous. Based on the book by Elisabet Benavent, the comedy has a good amount of social drinking, moderate language, and some sexy stuff (kissing, lingerie, vague talk about sex, innuendo). Moderate use of language includes "hell," "hella," "a--hole," "bulls--t," a couple of f-bombs. In Spanish, available with subtitles and dubbing.
Is It Any Good?
Appetizing and upbeat, this show will prove especially bingeable for romantics who crave a European holiday. A Perfect Story arrives with fully realized characters -- and an ensemble of actors up to the task of helping this romantic comedy zip along at a bubbly tempo. Reminiscent of boy-meets-girl goodies like Say Anything, there are good moral lessons woven thoughtfully into this show.
Parents will be reminded of the epic romantic comedies they enjoyed as teens. Mid-teens will like the flirty fun that takes place in Madrid and Athens. Some sexy stuff to watch out for, but it's not going to rock the boat too much in an anything-goes reality-show era. Try watching it in the original Spanish with subtitles for even more spritz.
