Perfect Stranger (2007)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic 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.

Posing as Katherine, a temp at Hill's agency, and Veronica, a girl Hill flirts with online, Rowena surrounds her prey from all sides, only to discover that she isn't the only one changing identities. The closer Rowena gets to finding the truth, the more we see how far people will go to protect it.

This one's DOA.

Top Critic

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
Top Critic

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

Top Critic

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.

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

Audience Reviews for Perfect Stranger

I watched this movie once when it first came out, bought a copy, stuck it on the shelf and forgot about it. And there it stayed for the better part of a decade. Had my mother over for a movie night, and she chose it. Swear I could not remember a thing about it. I am not a fan of either Bruce Willis or Halle Berry, and honestly I was pretty bored through most of it and wondering what the hell was I thinking buying it. Then the big reveal at the end. As I couldn't remember the movie, it was a total shock and then l understood why I'd liked it. I don't think there will be a third watch, but yes, it was just about worth sticking with.

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