Matthew Perry was discovered dead on Saturday night, with his death declared as a drowning. He was 54 years old.
While many fans of Perry will no doubt point to “Friends” as the biggest achievement of a career that spanned four decades, social media is also remembering “Fools Rush In”.
“Fools Rush In” was Perry’s most notable starring role in a film after Friends took off in 1997. It also starred another breakout star in Selma Hayek. Obviously both would go on to be successful for a long time.
Its a charming romantic comedy. I remember when Perry did the press tour for the movie. On Leno he did nothing but praise Hayek during the entire interview.
Let’s go to the Social Media traffic..
Fools Rush In is one of the greatest, underrated romcoms ever.

So heartbreaking to hear about Matthew Perry. Most are justifiably remembering him as one of the best sitcom characters ever, but I have to shout out his performance in this lil 90s romcom, Fools Rush In. It's always been a family fave. Rest in peace, sir. 💞 pic.twitter.com/3EfqKvWqtM

R.I.P. Matthew Perry aka Chandler Bing. "Fools Rush In" was my movie with Salma Hayek growing up. pic.twitter.com/xg1JSBpZTW

Fools Rush In is full of cliched stereotypes that most writers stay away from now.
But my mom is Mexican and my Dad was white..
And we laughed our asses off because it felt real.#MatthewPerry was THE perfect foil in that film.

Dude Matthew Perry died?!? How awful. I’ve always loved him but maybe never more than in Fools Rush In with Salma Hayek. Just a really great comedic performances that’s also touching. Very very sad loss and far too soon. pic.twitter.com/yXinf9nPqL

I loved him in Friends obviously, but Fools Rush In…classic. Definitely sad.

I’m especially sad about this. Perry was awesome in Fools Rush In, too. I read his recent book, which was so poignant.
