The Perfect Stranger, DVD
I love the charectures, and the set up of the movie. How love and compassion was showed and it was easy to get the message thru.

I've been meaning to watch this movie as I had it saved on my DVR from a time ago; it was on JCTV for those who are curious. Anyway, I liked Jefferson Moore in the movie Clancy, and I heard good things about this movie too. The Perfect Stranger I couldn't help, but find to be a curious idea as it sort of reminded me of the concept behind The Encounter only a different actor playing Jesus and only one person was talking to him.
The Perfect Stranger is about a stressed out lawyer named Nikki. She comes into work and sees on her desk an invitation to have dinner with Jesus Christ. At first she's creeped out thinking it was "one of her crazy Christian neighbors", but laughs it off thinking it was her husband inviting on a date her due to the fight they had earlier in the morning. She figures "why not?" since her daughter'll be at a sleepover and she loves the food at Pepino's Restaurant. When she gets there though, her husband isn't there and it is as the invitation said "a Dinner with Jesus Christ".
I thought this was pretty good, though I would say The Encounter was better about using this "if you could have dinner with Jesus Christ what would you ask him?" concept, even though The Perfect Stranger is based on the original book by David Gregory. I think Jefferson Moore is a very good actor in this film as well and the woman who plays Nikki is decent at times too. The camera work isn't the best, but then again this is a low-budget film and the concept for the film isn't supposed to have anything worth using CGI's for so what do you expect right lol? I liked most of what was talked about during their dinner conversation, some might find it controversial Jesus was drinking wine *gasp*, I thought a few of the questions could have gone a little better in that they didn't talk about Evolution much, but maybe they did that for the sequel Another Perfect Stranger, I'll have to find out. Overall this was a pretty decent movie, though I'd say this is definitely for the adults as the kids might find this to be boring.

This is a most see movie!
I couldn't pull myself away from this one! What would I ask or say if I sat down with Jesus? I enjoyed this movie so much that I immediately went to my computer to order it. I'm going to use it as a witness tool for my family and friends.

I loved this movie. The ending was wonderful and a lot of questions that you might be asking yourself about Jesus and God are answered.
Everyone with an enquiring mind will probably enjoy this movie as it is well acted but younger children I think will
be bored with it (not enough action). Mature teenagers will probably enjoy it. I am sure all adults will enjoy it.
