Audience Reviews for Ripe

"Ripe"?...more like ROTTEN, this movie was boring. The acting was very mediocre and you never really care for any of the main characters. They did a horrible job in character development with these two. 2/5 or 4/10, feel free to skip this movie.

I liked this movie for the most part. The characters r fairly well developed and the story line interesting enough to keep me watching. But unless u are a fan of this genre I wouldn't suggest u see it. It's a bit slow and casting isn't very well done. The story could have been told much better...I wish it had been cuz, I liked the story line.

very forgettable. not something i'd watch again even if someone offered me free sparkling apple cider.
