Ripley's movie review

Talk about your bad weeks. Sheesh. The story is ok but the flashback sequences are done in a really annoying way. Gilbert seems to channel Mary Tyler Moore at times and Duke overacts, sometimes bizarrely. Shatner is the most understated actor in the cast. How scary is that? Skip it.
