Perfect Stranger is far from Hitchcock, and Berry, although she gets an A for effort, can't do much with the half-baked characterizations.
58
Cliched, mostly routine and never especially satisfying.

Chicago Tribune
It lacks the rutting nuttiness of "Basic Instinct," even as it recycles much of that film's kiss-or-kill premise.
50
It is an acceptable enough thriller, neither the worst you've seen nor the opposite.

Village Voice
Perfect Stranger derives some novelty value from its colorblind casting and from being the most ludicrously silly Hollywood f----fest since the Willis-starring "Color of Night" (minus that movie's comic self-awareness). But as a thriller, it's so by-the-numbers that it's hardly worth keeping count.
38
A movie so inane that it fails to rise to the level of "good trash."
30
Just another thriller, utterly disposable.
30
Variety
A disorienting cocktail of illogic and hysteria that requires an 11th-hour soliloquy just to explain what's happened.
25
A crappy thriller gussied up with a chrome-plated veneer.
20
A twist-burdened techno-thriller that would be by-the-numbers if it could count.
