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.
