    One of those movies where you will laugh your ass off at parts, but want to cry at others. Overall very good. Depp, as usual when playing a drugged out crazy guy, delivers an excellent performance.

  1. The real problem is that there's nothing to George but the movie's props.
  2. Only Depp and Ray Liotta (as Jung's father) manage to animate this tired formula.

    When George’s fortunes start to go from bad to worse, so does the movie.
