...resembles one of those made-for-Lifetime thrillers that seem to crop up on a weekly basis...

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?

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.

While Perfect Stranger had its moments and wisely made its characters less than perfect, it was a pedestrian yarn better suited for the small screen than the silver one.

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.

While it begins dully enough for an investigative thriller, Perfect Stranger quickly skids off into abject foolishness.

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

Un thriller más bien mediocre, inverosímil y rebuscado que pretende sorprender al espectador con una vuelta de tuerca final... igualmente mediocre, inverosímil y rebuscada.

Although the movie makes a case for its ending, taking you by the hand and walking you through the stink of all its red herrings, the effort is wasted. Ro sounds like roe for a reason, and the logic behind this film was fishy from the start.

Even Berry's bodacious bod (the woman is blessed with some really good genes) isn't distraction enough to make Perfect Stranger palatable.

It's a movie that exists to showcase an actor more than it exists to be a movie.

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.

Loses its point about balancing different identities through the increasingly ludicrous twists and intense overacting

A B movie with a bland title, histrionic acting and a ridiculous twist ending.

Amid all the dreck that has come out in the last few years, it's hard to think of a title that approaches the audience with more cinematic bad faith. For shame!
