One of my favorite Johnny Depp movies. Awesome story line and brilliantly cast. This film is truly touching and has a brilliant sense of humor, as Depp's character is modeled by Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin. No one can get into a role as Depp can and he proves it with his usual elegance and poise in this one. There's nothing I'd change about it. Beautiful film!

This is a great movie. There's a lot of funny parts, a lot of heart-wrenching parts, and I love the fact that they made many references to old movies and old actors, particularly Buster Keaton.

Funny, endearing, romantic. Depp is adorable and the relationship he creates with Masterson's character is touching. A great chick flick.
