The Rum Diary(2011)

I wanted to like this movie more. Jonny Depp + Hunter S thompson worked before with Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. This movie on paper has so much going for it (great actors, great setting, interesting characters), but the sum of its parts doesn't build a satisfing movie. Although after its done you'll shrug it off it does have some memorable moments to warrant a mediocre review.
