Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Below Average Perfect Stranger is the kind of movie that makes you want to rush home and watch something by Hitchcock to be reminded that the term 'thriller' does not have to be synonymous with 'addlepated.'

USA Today Full Review
Poor Superficial and lurid, Perfect Stranger is the cinematic equivalent of spam and should, like those trashy messages, be avoided.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 135 moviegoers:
TEENS:Not very good opinions. Not recommended.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:The males enjoyed "Perfect Stranger" very much. The female opinions are a little lower but still decent. About half enjoyed it very much. Most of the remaining opinions are average (Good) to below average (Poor). Recommended, but not strongly.
ADULTS:The first thing I noticed is the relatively few "Fantastic" opinions and the high percentage of "Very Good" and "Good" opinions, or lower. This tells me that most will feel that "Perfect Stranger" is a good movie, but not a great movie. Nearly half of you may be somewhat disappointed but you will likely enjoy it, at least to some degree.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
This is a movie about secrets. Those we have. Those we share. And those we'll do anything to protect.

Rowena Price (HALLE BERRY) is an investigative reporter who has perfected the art of exposing other people's secrets. So when childhood friend Grace Clayton, who was having an affair with married advertising executive Harrison Hill (BRUCE WILLIS), turns up murdered, Rowena is determined to find the truth. Thanks to her associate, tech-savvy Miles Haley (GIOVANNI RIBISI), Rowena gains access to Grace's e-mail and learns that Grace was threatening to go to Hill's wife. Armed with that knowledge, Rowena goes undercover and becomes the perfect stranger – first as a temp, Katherine, in Hill's advertising agency, and then as Rocketgirl aka Veronica, another one of his online paramours. She watches the unsuspecting Hill from all sides, taking note of his wife doing the same. This is a man with an appetite for power, a weakness for women, and a wife on alert.

But in exposing Hill's secrets Ro unwittingly discovers a connection between Grace and two significant people in her life; her boyfriend, Cameron (GARY DOURDAN) and her best friend, Miles, leaving her feeling confused, betrayed, and with no one to trust on this journey.

The closer Ro gets to the truth, the more we begin to ask: What was this secret Grace had? And why would someone kill to protect it?
