Opening in theatres last week was Screen Gems’ new thriller The Perfect Guy. Focusing on a woman who “gets involved with a man who seems almost too good to be true,” the film sports a very watchable cast (Michael Ealy, Morris Chestnut and Sanaa Lathan) and an intriguing story that while not entirely original, is executed well enough to be worth a watch.
Aside from taking in a decent haul at the box office, The Perfect Guy is also finding favor with critics. In fact, our very own Isaac Feldberg enjoyed it quite a bit, saying the following in his review:
This devilishly entertaining, slickly executed and surprisingly thought-provoking film tries much harder than it needed to – and is all the better for it.
A few weeks back, we had the chance to catch up with both Ealy and Chestnut at The Perfect Guy press day. In good spirits and eager to talk about their new film, the stars discussed what it was like working with each other, filming an awkward love scene, the comparisons between Ealy’s character here and on The Following and much more.
Check out what they had to say in the video above, and be sure to catch The Perfect Guy as it’s now playing in theatres.
