Perfect Stranger ★★½ 2007 (R)

Efficient, if routine, thriller. Rowena (Berry) is an investigative reporter whose childhood friend Grace (Aycox) is murdered shortly after admitting to an affair with married corporate hotshot Harrison Hill (Willis). She goes undercover at Hill's ad firm, with the help of sorta creepy/geeky tech whiz Miles (Ribisi), to get to the truth and double-plays Hill by also posing as an online tart (which is how Grace met him). Rowena is unethical, Hill is smug, but at least director Foley won't leave viewers frustrated. 109m/C DVD, Blu-ray Disc . US Halle Berry, Bruce Willis, Giovanni Ribisi, Richard Portnow, Nicki Aycox, Gary Dourdan, Kathleen Chalfant, Florencia Lozano; D: James Foley; W: Todd Komarnicki; C: Anastas Michos; M: Antonio Pinto.
