"A Perfect Getaway" arrives in theaters at a fortuitous time. Summer has transitioned from effervescent delight to overheated slog, and as the temperature (and the humidity) have risen, so too has our desire for a snappy and refreshing cinematic experience. In many ways -- "Getaway," a product of veteran Hollywood filmmaker David Twohy -- provides that experience. It's breezy and exciting, not to mention brisk, at just a hair over 90 minutes.
