Perfect Stranger

I was expecting Balki and cousin Larry, but instead I got Halle Berry and Bruce Willis. Actually now that I think about it, that's a pretty good trade.

This Perfect Stranger is about a woman (Halle Berry) trying to bring down Bruce Willis for a murder of one of her friends. She will do anything to bring him to justice. Her role is convincing. Bruce, however, played the same character that he always plays. Now, the movie kept my interest and I knew I had it all figured out...until the end.

Let me tell you, when a movie uses the Scooby-Doo method of solving the case, it is a bad movie. At the end one of the main characters runs through what actually happened, but watching the movie would not have provided you any clues. That totally defeats the purpose of a good mystery. Trust me, I was pretty ticked off at this point.

Unfortunately for Halle Berry, her good looks could not sway me. I give this movie 1 star. If not for the "oh, this is how it happened" speech at the end, I would have given this 3 stars. The only thing that would have made it worse is if Scrappy-Doo jumped out and said, "Let me at 'em, uncle Scooby!"

Um... sorry, but nothing beats the Dance of Joy. Bad trade... bad trade
