This movie is hilarious...I would recommend it to all...(Especially if you love Johnny Depp)...The entire cast is brilliant though...
Brilliant! One of my absolute fovorite movies! The only complaint I have is that they did not show enough of Johnny Depp!
amazing storyline and plot. the cast is brilliant. great soundtrack, too
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.
Johnny Depp's character, Sam, would be enough reason to see this movie, but the rest of the cast and the plot are good enought to make this one of my favorite movies. The routines done by Depp are hilarious and worth taking a look at.
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.
after renting this movie one weekend i liked it so much that i watched it 4 times! johnny depp's character is so lovable and charming that its impossible not to like this movie and everyone should see it
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*
i LOVED Benny and Joon! Johnny is the BEST in that movie! theres just not enough of him!:)
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!
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 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 absolutely loved this movie. I only watched it because Johnny Depp is gorgeous, but this movie is wonderful even if you hate him. He looks adorable, the physical comedy is amazing, the story is fun.
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.
i love jonny!! talk about a hottie with a body and a cutie with a bootie he is ssssoooooooo talented
Great deapth. You'll laugh, cry and wonder why. But you'll not wonder why you saw this movie.
I loved this movie. One minute I was laughing and the next I was crying. You never knew what was going to happen next. And Johnny Depp, who is always amazing, shines in this movie.
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)
it is in fact my sixth favorite movie after the other johnny depp movies listed below. it was entertaining, a bit sad, but being one of the few pg johnny depp movies, it makes a great family film. it was my first mary stuart masterson movie, (i don't think i've seen others), but she had a great performance.
it's a romantic but fun movie in which Johnny Depp demostrates his talent and versatility as an actor. It's one of his best movies.
this is the best movie its soo funny cute/sad. i love it. also, it was filmed in my hometown... spokane washington woohoo.
