Any ideas for a review site, like Amazon?

Does anyone know what program I could use to create a simple "review" site like Amazon, where I can let users log in and write their own reviews, perhaps with the star rating system? I've messed around with doing this with Wordpress but after a new user logs in it's a bit unwieldy to poke through the menus to find the "Write" box and so on. Be nice to have it simpler.

Well to start off the Amazon review feature is anything but simple. I'll try to find something that you could use though...

I was working on a group project that needed a review script and came up with these:
http://www.rental-script.com/review/index.php?
about $100.00

http://www.randommouse.com/cgi-bin/rms/product/about/about_product.cgi?sku=REDQN
about $400.

One of the guys in the group heard that you can use an open source Content Management System (CMS) you can take a look at those here:

We ended up going with the "rental-script" - I wasn't in charge of that part of the project but I know the woman that was had to go back and forth with support to get it running. It took her a few days but eventually she did and it served our purpose for visitor reviews.

Hope that helps,
