Definitely one of the worst movies I've ever seen. If your idea of entertainment is looking at a bunch of dirty, sweaty people in the slums of Puerto Rico - with NOTHING happening - then you will be in hog heaven!

This is an absolutely terrible movie - and I like Johnny Depp. Since Blow and Donny Blasco, he has never done a worthwhile movie. After this movie, I would have to question ANY movie he does. THis movie was disjointed, slow, underacted in some areas and overacted in others, making it just stupid. My husband and I left about 3/4's through it - could have cared less about the ending.

I couldn't wait to see this movie! Johnny Depp is brilliant in everything he's in but this was a total let down. The previews made it look funny...it wasn't. Of course it had its shots of brief comedy but only in between monstrous lulls. This was not a movie made to enjoy, just a film made just to be made.

It was okay but the side kick was terrible, he didn't work well at all wth Mr. Depp. He should take an acting class because he just doesn't get it. The scenery was interesting, unfortunately the cast hurt the film.

The moive was just okay, not great, but not bad. I would definatley suggest to wait and see it on DVD. Jonny Depp has had better performances.

Spain conquered, enslaved and killed the inhabitants of Puerto Rico in 1493. For 400 years Spain brought slaves from Africa to Puerto Rico to work as slaves for the wealthy Spanish plantation owners. Johnny Depp would lead you to believe that it was The United States that killed the inhabitants of Puerto Rico in 1493 but that is not true. Johny Depp states in this movie that The United Kingdom of Great Britain slaughtered the natives of Puerto Rico, that statement is false and a lie. The United Kingdom did not invade Puerto Rico, it was Spain and Spain alone. Spain as well controlled the Slave trade from Africa to the rest of the world. This movie is a lie and attempts to change history, Johnny Depp seems to have issues with the fact that Spain killed the natives of Puerto Rico and instead blames the UK.

pueto rico baby del toro directing depp getting back into the character. I am so happy I used to do shrooms and acid while watching fear and loathing. Hunter is and always will be the most influential man to ever walk this earth. Read the book couple months ago with the thought of there might be a movie based on the book now Im so happy. never read a book based on a movie that was being prepared to released before. Each and every word, location its all in my mind, now I wonder weather or not my vision of how the book is going to translate to film. Really interesting.

MY life was changed the first time I ever watched the movie FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS. Staring the most facinating two characters I had ever seen put to film. This was my first exposure to Gonzo Journalism and it stuck viciously. Thompson has become an addiction since then. THE RUM DIARIES should prove to be a worthy successor in this genre. It would seem that the good Doctor has found his champion in Depp. Since Thompsons suicide I have wondered about the future of Gonzo Jounalism, and I am relieved that there are others who have Bought their tickets and intend to to ride this monster out to the end.

i think that this movie will be successful. not only because of depps fame, but the fact that he is going to be reunited with some of the cast from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

...This movie is going to be crazy fun, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is one of my favorite films of all time and to have Depp and Del Torro on another Hunter S. Thompson adventure is pure ecstacy. Playing Thompson has got to be one of Depps most amazing roles, showing his versatility and creativity, for all those who haven't seen Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, go watch it, you're in for a treat and also a preview of what The Rum Diaries will be.

The movie is not out yet, but i read the book, and you can bet that if Johnny Depp will be playing in this movie as journalist Paul Kemp (TOMPSON) then i will see it the first day it comes into theaters. may i suggest that you read the book before you see that movie it is <br>THE RUM DIARY by: HUNTER S THOMPSON
