Perfect Plan (2010) Movie Review - Emily Rose & Lucas Bryant

Perfect Plan (2010) Movie Review - Emily Rose & Lucas Bryant
Perfect Plan is not in my normal genre of movies to watch, but surprisingly I liked this thriller mystery movie. It was fairly predictable, but that was mostly because of the written movie description. It revealed too much of the plot in my opinion. When it comes to a mystery movie, I prefer that the "mystery" be left to be discovered when watching, not in the movie description that should be labeled spoiler alert.  Nevertheless, the actors still make the movie worth watching.

Some of you may already be familiar with the actress, Emily Rose.  This was the first movie I have ever seen her star in and it made me look her up to see her other tv films.  I did see several TV films listed that I plan to watch soon.  Frankly, I liked her better than many of the current day major movie actresses in Hollywood.  

The Perfect Plan Movie Plot

The movie opens with two campers being murdered one night.  Their identities are not revealed until later in the film when their brother starts searching for them.  Within minutes of the first scenes, we are moved from the Appalachian Trail to Chicago city where we meet Lauren Baker.

Check Price
Lauren (Emily Rose) is co-owner of In the Loop Realtors.  She and her best friend, Maddie, are struggling to keep the company open in the depressed real estate market.  When Lauren lists a mansion in an exclusive area, they see an opportunity for things to financially turn around for them.  

The mansion is owned by a brother and sister who inherited it when their parents died in a car accident.  Since neither of the siblings live there, they want to sell fast.  When Lauren quickly finds a cash buyer, everyone is happy.  At least, they are happy until they see the newspaper article about the bodies of Sean and Rebecca Crawford being found on the Appalachian Trail in PA.   

Perfect Plan Movie Rating and Recommendation

Personally, I thought the movie was pretty good.  I appreciated the plot twists and lack of grotesque murder scenes.  However, this movie is for mature audiences only due to adult scenes and content.

While it may not be an "edge of the seat" thriller mystery, it is well worth watching. 

Perfect Plan is available on Amazon and is included for free with Prime Membership.

  1. Being a fan of the mystery genre in both books and movies, the Perfect Plan sounds like a movie I would enjoy. Thanks for your review, Sylvestermouse, without which I might have missed this movie.

    1. Yes, I know we have several mystery fans here on Review This! In large part due to the contributors here, I have found that I do enjoy a good mystery myself as long as it doesn't get too violent and/or grotesque.

  2. This sounds like a movie I would enjoy. I will check it out on Amazon. Thanks for the review...I find it hard to pick out movies on Amazon and appreciate the recommen.

    1. I do to Mary Beth! I have started seeing a lot more foreign films that require subtitles for me to watch because they are in a different language too. Since I rarely watch a movie to read, that doesn't appeal to me and the search has to start again. When I am looking for something that both my husband and I can watch together, I often spend close to an hour just searching. That seems like such a waste of time! I'm not sure how Amazon could make the search easier, but I really do wish there was a better way to find good shows to watch.

  3. Sounds like a movie for me. I do like a good thriller mystery, my problem is watching them with Fran because she always figures everything out before it is revealed. I'll have to look for this one. Thanks for the great review.

  4. I agree with the others about appreciating recommendations. I always enjoy a good mystery. Glad to know there aren't grotesque murder scenes, which I can do without. I've added this one to my watch list.

  5. I love twists so I'll have to watch out for this one.

  6. I'm always looking for movies that are "worth watching", so many that are churned out these days lack in everything except sex, and that is not what I'm looking for. This sounds like a movie I would enjoy! Thanks for a great review, I won't read the synopsis before I start to watch.

  7. Cynthia, the Perfect Plan sounds like a good movie for a lazy Saturday afternoon. Based on your review, I know I'd enjoy it.
