Consensus: Despite the presence of Halle Berry and Bruce Willis, Perfect Stranger is too convoluted to work, and features a twist ending that's irritating and superfluous. It's a techno-thriller without thrills.

This one's DOA.

TIME Magazine

The movie would perhaps like to say something serious about the ease with which modern communications allows us to be multiple personalities, but that effort is lost in ineptitude.

The movie shows that the only thing worse than a generically screwy thriller is one with a selective narrator -- and one that doesn't give viewers a fair chance to play along.

Time Out

Some films are marred by absurd endings; this dire journo-thriller is like one big mar.

Columbia seems to be on a one-studio mission to revive that very '90s of film genres, the erotic thriller--or are they determined to kill it off for good, considering such poor efforts as this listless Halle Berry vehicle?

Dallas Morning News

A rarely suspenseful thriller with a twist ending of the worst kind: It takes too much explanation.

A tangled mess.

A big cheat because virtually nothing of what happens in the first 100 minutes would ever really have happened if the truth that's exposed in the final few minutes was true.

The twist was great but I didn't liked the story. Not my taste I guess.

Why is it some scripts result in predictable, cheesy, made-for-tv hokum. Whilst something like Perfect Stranger, manages to attract big name stars to take down… More

Great thriller! Definitely didn't expect the ending and had me intrigued all the way through. A great film! A must see!

Sometimes a movie tries so hard to twist and turn that it comes out straight as an arrow. Convoluted, overwrought with contrived moments of tension, this movie… More
