...an ideal film for suspense audiences.

I'm surprised that the red herring isn't extinct yet. It's almost as if the makers of this film fished them all out of the sea and put them in this film

Hear ye, hear ye. Films don't always have to be revolutionary slice-of-life cinematic art. Sometimes they can just be cheesy, nonsensical fun. Like Perfect Stranger.

Even when the plot spins its wheels while waiting to reveal itself, there's still plenty of atmosphere and a fairly decent performance from Berry.

For those who are interested in Berry as both an actress and screen presence, this is one of the most satisfying films she has ever made. It capitalizes on her strengths and she owns the picture, from start to finish.

Evincing a style that might best be described as deliciously retarded, it's sort of like discovering that an old friend has placed you on a spam mailing list.

The only problem is that there just isn't enough sex. Oh, there's plenty of Halle Berry... but there isn't enough Halle Berry, if you get my drift.

Considering the twirliness of the story, this is a fairly straightforward film that knows where it's going and how to get there. And there's much to be admired in that.

While the story becomes dauntingly complex as it goes, the finale resolves its multiple mysteries seamlessly. Perfect Stranger is the kind of polished diversion that the big studios should deliver twice a month, but don't.

Complex and convoluted, to say the least.

The ridiculously convoluted plot is even fairly good fun to follow, right up to the genuinely surprising finale.

A chat 'n cheat Internet thriller about the potential fatal cyber-attraction of online flirting, the film is more sordid than suspenseful when it comes to messy human relations filtered through the World Wide Web.

...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.
