The Rum Diary
This was a "GO" for me from the get-go! I am a huge fan of all things in the quirky-Johnny Depp "genre" and, given the cult-following of Hunter S. Thompson, I loved the tie-in there, as well.
Seemed to be a well-acted, character-driven movie, although the female lead, while beautiful, was probably the most poorly portrayed. Of course, eye-candy is always a necessity but her role seemed to be all over the place and left me cold. LOVED Giovanni Ribisi's character and he's always been an interesting actor to me from waaaay back to occasional "Friends" episodes!!
An acquired taste, but if you're a fan, this is worth seeing!
