Psychological thriller worth admission price

Nothing is as it seems, and the truth can be made up of lies. "Perfect Stranger" is a myriad of complex lies, secrets and the constant changing of identities. How far do people really go to protect themselves, their pasts, and their futures?

Rowena Price (Halle Berry) goes undercover to investigate Harrison Hill (Bruce Willis), in relation to her friend's murder. Miles Hailey (Giovanni Ribisi, "Gone in 60 Seconds") plays Rowena's Guy Friday, and he lends his support, friendship and technical savvy - along with some creepy sexual innuendo.

Macy, "Thank You For Smoking") are four guys, in the throes of middle-aged mediocrity, who set out on the open road with only the wind at their backs. Only two things stand in their way: a highway patrolman (John C.

Top 3 Museums in Fort Worth

Whether you are an art major or just an art enthusiast, Fort Worth is a city teeming with culture. It has been described by many as the art capitol of the Southwest. To prove that point, there are three nationally renowned museums within a few square blocks of each other.

My best advice would be to take a day, park somewhere close and visit all three.
