    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    A dull, dumb and unforgivably dated thriller, free of thrills and any kind of perfection. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    To see Perfect Stranger is to wish for a more sophisticated vehicle for a film actress this good, but actors -- and audiences -- take what they can get. This is better than most. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    Superficial and lurid, Perfect Stranger is the cinematic equivalent of spam and should, like those trashy messages, be avoided. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    Life is full of choices, and Halle Berry has made another bad one with Perfect Stranger, a perfectly off-putting thriller. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    Perfect Stranger is the Egg MacGuffin of whodunits, a cheesy affair that casts so many baited lures that they tangle each other and don't hook you. show more

    Ken Fox TV Guide

    Todd Komarnicki's screenplay relies heavily on red herrings and a host of suspects (there are more murderers swanning around Hill's sleek offices than there were aboard the Orient Express) to keep audiences distracted from what, in retrospect, is really pretty obvious. show more

    Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune

    It lacks the rutting nuttiness of "Basic Instinct," even as it recycles much of that film's kiss-or-kill premise. show more

    Miami Herald

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

    Put simply, I wore my vhs copy out. The only thing that disappointed me was that there wasn't a full-length video for the song "Watermark", which I believe is one of the most beautiful instumentals ever recorded.
