Perl::Critic is very, very useful if you want to enforce coding standards, or want to start refactoring some "bad" coding practices out of a project.

That said, it's really only going to catch syntactic and stylistic problems, though. It won't help you find forgotten filehandles, silly program logic, terrible variable names, or other problems inherent in bad legacy code.
