5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it., December 27, 2011
This review is from: The Rum Diary [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
This movie is good. I've read the book several times, and yes, there were changes made, but I still loved it. When transferring book to film, changes are always made. It's the awful truth, I know. People want to compare this film to Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Guess what? It's not. AND, it's not supposed to be. I'm a Thompson fan, through and through. I've read his work for years. I think the characters were spot on. This movie isn't for people who just want to see Johnny Depp on screen, or those who want another film in the likes of Vegas. Ribisi was AMAZING to watch in this movie. I really loved it, can't wait to get my copy and add it to my collection.

I agree with you, but I have to write in addition that the book just is way, way better than the movie. (Which is usually unavoidable)
