Benny & Joon wears its sensitivity on its sleeve and though it's a little hard to take at times, these actors make it all passable.

Depp is affably endearing and offers some hilarious, seemingly impromptu tributes to Chaplin and Keaton.

The movie suggests that love and magic can overcome madness, and for at least the length of the film I was prepared to accept that. Much of the credit for that goes to Depp...
