Ripley's movie review

It wasn't nearly as bad as I'd been led to believe. It wasn't good by any means but it's not even close to the worst movie I've ever seen.

Affleck can't act so he tries to compensate by making his character as annoying as possible. Lopez struts around in short skirts and attempts to be shocking but many of her scenes are pointless. Pacino has a single scene where he gets to make a big speech with lots of shouting. Pretty much the same role he's been playing in all of his movies lately. Walken also has a single scene where he acts weird for no apparent reason. I liked Bartha a lot (he actually got to me) and I didn't mind Venito but they weren't enough to save the movie. Skip it.
