Another review by a jaded reviewer. The truth is that you can't take your eyes off of the screen. The actors do their jobs (although Roger Ebert complained that Johnny Depp was no Cary Grant the latter of course only 20% of movie goers remember) and the script stays smart in a way that befits the movie.
