Before even watching the movie, I knew it was going to be cheesy. I'm all for cheesy funny movies, but some parts of the film were cringe-worthy cheesy. It also had it's funny moments. I liked Johnny Depp's character and Helena Bonham Carter's character, but the the rest of the acting was so-so. One character that was a main player in the beginning, was sort of left out during the remainder of the movie, which was weird. The story line throughout the movie was predictable with a twist at the end that was just unnecessary. The ending was left open for a sequel.
I give it 2.5 out of 5 thumbs.
* If anyone knows how to make a thumbs up sign on a mac, LMK! :)
