Ripley's movie review

Pfeiffer was great and gave her character intelligence and strength while letting just enough of her dangerous dark side show through. Lohman was also great and gave her character an innocence that wasn't really innocence. There weren't any obvious bad guys in this movie; just messed up people. It's good and worth watching.
