How should I do (and document) effective semi-formal code review?by radiantmatrix (Parson)

radiantmatrix has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I think of myself as a moderately good developer. I have a reasonable amount of experience, I know about common patterns, I reuse code when possible, I try to follow good development practice.
I use test-driven development, I religiously use a revision control systsem. I use Devel::Cover to check that my tests cover 100% of the code I write. Likewise, I ensure that I have good Pod::Coverage.
I've done informal code reviews before -- at many of my clients, my co-workers disdained code review, so I found ways to do it "on the sly": "Hey, I'm not sure about this module, would you look at it with me?"
Now, though, I have an opportunity to do more structured and formal code review. I don't want to bury the process in formality and paperwork, but it is important that I can point a manager at documentation and say "yep, I really did code reviews, here's the proof".
Can the members of the Monestary suggest:
I'd certainly benefit from the experience of my esteemed brothers and sisters.
