Ripley's movie review

Dillon looked like he belonged in that time period. The hair, the clothes, everything really suited him. The music was pretty cool, the craps games were fun, and the acting was alright. I liked David Marshall Grant, Dern was annoying, Tommy Lee always plays this part well, and, if the acting thing hadn't turned out so well for Diane Lane, she could have been a stripper. Wow.
