We gave it an B

Ashton Kutcher, ?Michelle Pfeiffer, and Kathy Bates are pretty high-wattage names ? for what’s basically a straight-to-DVD drama, Personal Effects. So it must stink, right? Actually, Kutcher is a pleasant surprise as a quiet, awkward college wrestler looking for justice after his sister is brutally murdered. He doesn’t find it, but he does find sympathy in the arms of an equally damaged Pfeiffer. Apparently the guy has a way with older women. A piddly making-of doc is the lone EXTRA. B
