A Perfect Getaway

Adventure . Mystery . Thriller

For their honeymoon, newlyweds Cliff and Cydney head to the tropical islands of Hawaii. While journeying through the paradisaical countryside the couple encounters Kale and Cleo, two disgruntled hitchhikers and Nick and Gina, two wild but well-meaning spirits who help guide them through the lush jungles. The picturesque waterfalls and scenic mountainsides quickly give way to terror when Cliff and Cydney learn of a grisly murder that occurred nearby and realize that they're being followed by chance acquaintances that suspiciously fit the description of the killers.

More Info:
  • Manohla Dargis

    A B-movie-style throwback that’s consistently diverting and blissfully free of morals and messages, A Perfect Getaway is just the thing for the summertime movie blahs: it’s a genuinely satisfying cheap thrill.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • 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.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    A clever, heart-pounding thriller, and a welcome return to form for the director.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Stephen Cole

    Benefits from one standout performance: Timothy Olyphant ( Deadwood ) plays the part of Nick with ingratiating comic relish.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • M. E. Russell

    If you're willing to have your patience tested, Twohy and his cast reward it.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    A Perfect Getaway is never great, but Twohy isn't aspiring for greatness--he's after gritty and lively and weird. And that's good enough.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Glenn Whipp

    To Twohy's credit, he does a decent job of keeping you guessing -- and interested -- until almost the very end.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Dennis Harvey

    A big-reveal thriller with surprises that really do surprise -- and are worth waiting for through an audaciously long buildup -- A Perfect Getaway finds writer-director David Twohy in popcorn form with a muscularity not seen since 2000's "Pitch Black."

    Variety Full Review
  • John Anderson

    While A Perfect Getaway, like "The Sixth Sense," recaps itself, to indicate to the audience what they may have missed (and when), there seems to be plot holes large enough that one could paddle through them in an outrigger canoe.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Cliff Doerksen

    Writer-director David Twohy (Pitch Black) serves up mechanical thrills culminating in a bogus twist ending.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    Steve Zahn makes full use of the many varieties of hyper in his acting arsenal, while Timothy Olyphant has a heckuva good time telegraphing macho mania.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Even if you know what’s coming, it’s a neat bit of meta-thriller filmmaking, as much about the mechanics of storytelling as a reasonably satisfying example of it.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    When the story’s twist arrives, you half-expect Twohy to throw in a couple of reels from "Dead Again," plus outtakes from "The Usual Suspects." It’s a lulu; I'm just not sure if it's the sort of lulu that will lead to great word-of-mouth.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    For a low-brow, psycho-on-the-loose-in-paradise thriller, A Perfect Getaway is surprisingly entertaining.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Twohy serves up a hard-to-swallow second-act twist and an unconvincing back story, but the slightly overlong A Perfect Getaway recovers with a pulse-pounding climax.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    For a thriller of its kind, it's a lively and slick summer escape.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    A Perfect Getaway may not play fair by the audience but at least it cheats honestly. These days that's something.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Just a run-of-the-mill slasher/thriller.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    It's still a gimmicky, tricked-out tale that is all too self-aware. But the film does keep you guessing and probably guessing wrong.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Kevin C. Johnson

    More scenic than scary.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    A Perfect Getaway is, in its own delightfully silly and manipulative way, one of the most effective paranoid thrillers of the new millennium. That doesn't make it a great movie by a long shot.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    The result isn't deadly dull, but it does turn what should have been a most dangerous game into a basic scenery-chewing contest.
