It was funny for the first fifteen minutes. By half-way, I was dead bored. I like mindfuck type of movies, but not this type...
This movie is highly overrated in my opinion, yes the first few minutes were funny with a great performance by Johnny Depp. But the rest of the movie is just aimless, it goes nowhere and it doesn't have much story to tell.
Maybe you'd have to do drugs yourself to relate to. I don't know. If I where you, I wouldn't watch it in a cinema, watch it somewhere where you can fast forward and/or skip the movie entirely.
To be honest, I hated it. It had no plot or character development, just two people tripping out. Johnny Depp's performance was excellent though.
