Abridged Movie Review: Cursed

This is not going to be a very big review, just the impression this movie left me with.

Starring: Christina Ricci, Jesse Eisenberg, Joshua Jackson

I don't even know what to say on this one. It seemed like a very subpar attempt by pretty much everyone involved. The story was uninspired and very transparent, the script feeble for the most part, and for talent we know this group is capable of the acting was unsatisfactory.

I would bet you that had this movie not had the big names (Christina Ricci, Joshua Jackson, Shannon Elizabeth) it would have never made it into the theater, at best it would have been one of those quietly released on DVD titles.

My suggestion, wait for this one to pop up on Showtime or HBO in the middle of the night in a few months.

-Just a little aside note, even though I really didn't like this movie much at all I did enjoy Christina Ricci in it, I don't feel she gets enough credit for some of the stuff she does. This is by no means anywhere near her best work but she still shines above pretty much everyone else here.
