Ripley's movie review

Great cast playing quirky characters which ranged from funny to annoying. Forster's character was by far the most compelling and made the entire movie worthwhile. I liked it. I didn't think I was going to at the beginning but I did. And I loved the argument over Steven Seagal. It was priceless.

The movie is based on a play by David Mamet so it's all talk and the language is very strong. If that offends you, skip it. If not, it's worth watching.
