This movie was different then my normal movies I watch, tho I watched it because I'm a huge fan of Jennifer. She is such a good actress :). A few scenes grossed me out but telling ya about them will ruin the movie- which is a pretty good movie. Just going to say the Ozarks area is a bit like the mafia or something like that. Alright so I give this movie 3 stars- not the worse but not her best! :) not her fault its the movie!
