The best movie I have ever seen!!!
17 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have never seen a better movie in my entire life, and believe me I have seen a lot!!! You can't put it in words. Just the best of the best. Flawless, Perfect! This has to be one of the top ten best movies ever made (in my opinion). There are very few films that can keep me watching over and over again. I just love this movie. INCREDIBLE is the best word I can use for this movie. Everything in it is perfect. All the actors perform brilliantly, the direction deserved an Emmy and the editing is superb. Basically it's a movie you have to see, over and over again. This movie has everything you could want: compelling acting, brilliant direction, stunning cinematography, and a riveting script. Jaclyn Smith is extremely hot with her bare back. The Users is one of the most important movies of all time. Don't miss this one!
