Ripley's movie review

It was funny at times but the most fascinating thing about this was how much it felt like a real TV show. Right down to the bits that come before and after commercials. Of course, a lot of it was absurd but then again, so are most reality shows.

I wouldn't rent it but if it turns up on cable, give it a shot. Heh.
