I quite enjoyed this movie for many reasons. I have love Evan Rachel Wood ever since seeing her in Thirteen, dark comedies are always interesting, it was very unpredictable, and the many twists kept me guessing. Some of the scenes were contrived, but other than that Pretty Persuasion is an alright movie.

Critics hated this movie for some reason, but I found it really enjoyable. Sure, it tried too hard to please but that's what I appreciate about it. What came out of it was a darkly comic movie about vengeance mixed with commentaries about the media. Evan Rachel Wood is perfect playing a cold hard bitch.

Ron Livingston (Swingers, Little Black Book), James Woods (Vampires, The Virgin Suicides), Jane Krakowski (Elfie), Selma Blair (Cruel Intentions, Hellboy), Jamie King (Sin City, Bulletproof Monk). Followed by a number of various other familiar faces within the supporting roles as well.

James Woods performance stands out as the over-the-top; in your face comic relief. I never initially saw him much as a comedic actor; but this man pulls it off incredibly well. If you want …
