At best diverting, at worst drearily conventional, The Rum Diary is pre-gonzo Thompson, before the fusion of fact and trippy fantasy that flowered into a brilliant delirium. show more
Jazzy and colorful, full of men and women in swell clothes driving cool cars, The Rum Diary has a bit of a seedily exotic Graham Greene vibe, and Robinson moves things along at a nice, casual clip, even in the film's more overheated moments. show more
The Rum Diary remains a relatively mild diversion, not at all unpleasant but neither compelling nor convulsive. show more
Pretty good movie. We enjoyed it. As usual Johnny Depp is great. The view into the 60s Puerto Rico underbelly was very interesting.
it was an ok movie not having read the rum diary at first i thought the main character was suppose to be hunter s thompson then i realized it was just a character he created the story really didn\'t have much of a plot the movie felt like it wasn\'t going anywhere and when it ended i was like \"ummmm so what was this movie about???\" there were some funny parts in the movie but over all i would give it a D+ and i would suggest if you have nothing better to do rent it for a $1 at redbox.
Worse Movie ever
