    I have to admit I was reluctant to watch this movie because I have a relative going through the last stages of a terminal cancer, so the synopsis didn't appeal to me at first. However, since I'm a fan of independent movies and the trailer seemed interesting enough, I decided to give it a go. I laughed, I cried, and I had an overall good time. The movie has its (many) silly moments, but it also has a strong emotional load that is, in my opinion, even better than the comedy. I enjoyed seeing Depp in a role a little more serious than his latest movies, without weird make up on his face. He gives a truly good performance that is a clear reminder that underneath his eccentric appearance, he is an amazing actor (Black Mass being the most recent example of this). His character, I feel, is not purposely made as unlikeable and loathsome, but you can't help but feel sorry for him and by the end of the movie his many seemingly annoying traits become his most endearing qualities. As for the supporting cast, I particularly enjoyed Zoey Deutch as Claire and Danny Huston as Peter; even though they're relegated to a secondary place, they live up to their roles and deliver good performances. The cinematography and various locations were beautiful. A heads up, though; the movie can be hard to watch at points because of his illness- it did heighten the emotional load for me. And there's a lot of swearing, drinking and sexual situations, so kids should probably skip it.

  • I love this movie ! 5/6/2019 12:00:00 AM by greggtravis 10

    I have watched this movie 6 times in the last 24hr's and I am watching as I type.I randomly chose it but I could tell that it was going to be one of Depp's great performances. I was right. The story line also hits home because my mother was diagnosed with advanced stage 4 breast cancer but she accepted treatment, her diagnosis was three years ago.
