i thing the movie is great, funny and all the actors are fantastic....Congratulation! *I am a big fan of johnny Depp, i love him soooo much*
Great deapth. You'll laugh, cry and wonder why. But you'll not wonder why you saw this movie.
this is the best movie its soo funny cute/sad. i love it. also, it was filmed in my hometown... spokane washington woohoo.
I DON'T REALLY THINK THAT JOON WAS REALLY SLOW MORE LONGS OF THE WORDS BORDLINE LIKE MYSELF AND SAM WHO WAS PLAYED BY JOHNNY DEEP REALLY LOVED AND CARED FOR HER SO MUCH YES THIS MOVIE HAS A GOOD PLOT A NOT SO SMART GIRL CAN BE WELL UNIQUIE AND SPEND TIME WITH A CHACTER NAMED SAM OH AND JOHNNY DEEP WAS SO CUTE IN THIS MOVIE WAY CUTE!!!!
I love this movie. It's funny with all its neurotic tendancies. The best part is peanut butter and Captain Crunch in a blender. B & J is a funny look at mental illness in love.
This is the greatest movie ever made. Johnny Depp is unbelievable. He is the best actor of our time. Excellent performances also given by Aidan and Mary. This movie is gorgeous, innovative, and hilarious. I fell in love with Sam (Depp) immediately. He is incredible. I recommend this movie to anyone.
This is a great movie. Funny, serious, and just an entertaining film. For any Depp fan this is a must. He does such a good job being Sam. Amazing!
This movie is great. The acting was wonderful (and might I add that Johnny Depp was at his best). It made me laugh harder than I have in a long time! This movie is the big screen at its best!
i love jonny!! talk about a hottie with a body and a cutie with a bootie he is ssssoooooooo talented
Johnny Depp is sooo amazing in this film! This film is filled with things that will make you laugh, it is sure to lift you spirits (if just the sight of Johnny Depp doesn't already do that. People of all ages are sure to love this film. Johnny Depp and the rest of the cast give amazing performances.
i am absolutely in LOVE with this movie. it really beautiful and i just want to watch it over and over again. and johnny depp is sooo gorgeouss
Brilliant! One of my absolute fovorite movies! The only complaint I have is that they did not show enough of Johnny Depp!
I must admit that I, like almost any other teenage girl, only rented this movie to see Johnny Depp...and let me tell you, I wasn't disappointed. But the movie turned out to be a truly great film in addition to the Depp-factor. If you like good music, a nice story, and loads of laughs, this is a movie for you. I would recommend it to anyone. (*Oh, and you'll really get a kick out of Depp's horror movie impersonations... Don't know what I'm talking about? Watch it, and you will!*) Check it out!
Benny & Joon should be among everyone's DVD collection. A charming tale of love overcoming adversity, physical and mental. Johnny Depp once again shows his amazing range of takent, quietly drifting from whimsical to adorable with the minimum of effort. All the actors do a great job, solid performances all round. Perfect for a cosy night in with a box of chocolates and a good bottle of wine. An absolute must-see!!!
I've watched Benny and Joon 1012 times, and counting. I'm not entirely obsessed, although I hugged the DVD while driving in the car. Haha. My only wish in my life before I die is to meet someone like Johnny Depp. All his movies are amazing. Did I mention my room has pictures/poseters of him from his movies. Like Cry Baby, Edward Scissorhands, all that stuff. Which I have all those movies. Who wouldn't? :)
This movie is hilarious...I would recommend it to all...(Especially if you love Johnny Depp)...The entire cast is brilliant though...
this was perfect, 4th favorite movie (after nightmare before christmas, sleepy hollow, and secret window).rocks the house
I love this movie, it just makes you feel so good. It makes you really think about love under any circumstance. Sam is brilliant, even though he cannot read. You will find yourself falling madly inlove with him just like Joon Pearl does.
this movie... is the best movie... ever. if you want to watch a movie with a girlfriend or boyfriend, this is the movie to get. if you want to watch a movie alone eating popcorn and chocolate this is the movie to get. it'll make you laugh, cry, and pine for the sexiest man alive... johnny depp. his hair, his skin tone, his voice... beautiful. it's witty with a naive romanticism... you won't regret you bought it!
This is my personal favourite movie! I love the innocence of Sam and Joon's relationship. The entire movie is well acted. Definetly worth owning and watching many times in a row. (laughs, thinks about how many times I've seen it)
Johnny Depp has always looked for quirky roles, and his turn as a Charlie Chaplin/Buster Keaton-esque street performer makes this charming tale one to watch again and again. From his expressive eyes to his dead-on rendition of Chaplin's classic bread dance from "The Gold Rush," Depp creates a character of depth and humanity out of what could have been a very cartoonish role. Aidan Quinn and Mary Stuart Masterson round out the solid cast, and don't forget to look for a young Julianne Moore as a diner waitress!
