Here's what critics are saying;

"While its title suggests a narrower focus, "The Perfect Match" is largely an ensemble rom-com, and a pretty enjoyable one." New York Times.

"As if to make up for the predictable main plot, The Perfect Match is bogged down with a slew of uninteresting B-stories." Entertainment Weekly.

"Woodruff, a music-video specialist with a filmography full of retreads ... has mostly made another one here." Variety.

"Why is it that supposedly mature characters in romantic comedies are constantly making asinine bets about their love lives? That hoary contrivance fuels the plot of The Perfect Match, a film so generic that its bland title is its most original feature."  The Hollywood Reporter.

"This might have been an interesting strategy if the movie transformed into something more than a hollow imitation of a genre it doesn’t know how to fully inhabit. Instead, it coasts nowhere." A.V Club.


"Doggedly follows the well-worn rom-com path, down to saving all the personality and occasional laughs - very, very occasional ones - for the supporting cast."
The Wrap.

"The Perfect Match" is a romantic comedy by default, and mostly everyone involved is asleep at the wheel." Detroit News.
