Ripley's movie review

(Kieran) Culkin is good, Goldblum is less annoying than usual, Pullman (in a small role) is very good, and Sarandon has this character down to a science. I have to wonder though... doesn't she ever get tired of dying of cancer?

The story is just ok, but maybe I don't have much patience for self-centred teenagers. I wouldn't rush out and rent it but if it's on, it's watchable.
