PERFECT COUPLES “Perfect Crime” Review

PERFECT COUPLES "Perfect Crime" Epsiode 6 – This week on Perfect Couples, Dave feels like less of a man because Julia does not need him, while Vance is horrified that Amy promised Leigh that she could be their wedding planner. Meanwhile, Rex wants to start up a prank war, but no one is game.

When I read the description for this week’s episode, I thought for sure that the bulk of the show would center around the prank war, but it turned out to focus more on gender role reversal and Leigh’s terrible cooking. I actually liked both plots. As for the gender roles, I liked that they were divided even within the men. First, you had Rex who was ready to go kill a possum and then relive his younger lacrosse days by watching old videos. Next, you had Dave you wanted to protect Julia from the gangbangers (or high school students) in their yard, but Julia took care of it before he could even get his clothes on. Finally, you had Vance who was just as freaked out as Amy. Did they even tell us what was actually "attacking" them? I am not sure which scene was funnier, when Dave tried to be more of man by breaking the computer so he could fix it, not knowing the whole thing was being recorded by the web cam or the scene where the three guys try to dispose of the dead, but smiling, possum. I loved when Amy told Julia that she thought Dave was trying to be more like a man and Julia simply responded, "Oh, honey" in a pathetic voice. My other favorite scene had to be Dave spotting the dead grinning possum on the skylight in an almost Psycho moment. Read More...
