Goofs

During the mess hall scene where they bring Pete a hamburger, he pushes it away saying he doesn't eat meat. One of the soldiers then takes a few bites. Nobody touches it again after that, and yet the hamburger repeatedly changes from untouched, to bitten, and then mostly gone. See more »

The girl that played Maxine is incredible!
24 October 2004 | by (York, England) – See all my reviews

Wasn't too jazzed with this movie at all, and felt cheated after terrible performances and mediocre writing, however the little girl, Maxine (Candice Love), was absolutely adorable and I hope to see her in future performances. There is real talent there for this cutie. Does anyone know where she's from or if she's done anything else? I hope to see her untapped talent in years to come! Her performance made the whole thing worth watching, and she had but a short part. Does she perhaps have a website? The director has gone on to do some worthwhile screenplays but as far as 'Ripe' is concerned, I hope she will not be directing ever again. This movie gets 2 very enthusiastic thumbs down down.
