5.0 out of 5 stars It's quirky and it's fun
I really don't understand why some people don't rate this movie at all. It takes all sorts, I suppose. For me, The Rum Diary is an often hilarious drama and something a bit different for Johnny Depp who plays the role of Paul Kemp, an American journalist who goes to work for a small and struggling newspaper in the America owned island of Puerto Rico during the 1960s...

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay, but a little disappointing compared to 'Fear and Loathing...'
I have to say that this Johnny Depp ‘vehicle’ is not as good as the brilliant adaptation of Hunter S Thompson’s other book ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas’ in which Depp also starred. It was nice to see Giovanni Ribisi (Pheobe’s brother in Friends) as an alcholic waster character, but it wasn’t a big part. The lovely Amber Heard...

Watch this film for a love of 1950s cars and fashion, Rum and of course Johnny Depp in his upturned shades.

2.0 out of 5 stars hmmmmm nothing like the trailer shows, 13 Feb 2012
This review is from: The Rum Diary [DVD] (2011) (DVD)
I am a big fan of Johnny Depp and especially fear and loathing. However this just doesn't hit the mark in the slightest. It has some hilarious moments in it which is why the 2 stars, but it is slow and really fragmented. The ending just fizzles out and leaves you really dissapointed.

Wouldn't recommend

This review is from: The Rum Diary [DVD] (2011) (DVD)
I am a huge johnny fan and have brought all his films and was really excited about this film. as i am with all johnny films so i cant belive what im going to write rum diary takes time to get into it starts really slow as it goes on you do find yourself getting drawn into it but johnny seems to know what his fans like and can turn a bad film into a hit and cause he is so talented and georgous you forgive him and after a few times of watchin it its a brilliant film . A great watch for any johnny depp fan. Now im excited about his next project.
