"OUTRAGEOUSLY ENTERTAINING. DEPP IS TERRIFIC!"
From Tim Burton, acclaimed director of Big Fish, Edward Scissorhands and Batman and producer of The Nightmare Before Christmas, comes the hilarious, true-life story of the wackiest filmmaker in Hollywood history - Ed Wood! Johnny Depp (Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl, Chocolat, Edward Scissorhands) stars as the high-spirited movieman who refuses to let unfinished scenes, terrible reviews or hostile studio executives derail his big-screen dreams. With an oddball collection of shobiz misfits, Ed takes the art of bad moviemaking to an all-time low!
The all-star cast features funnyman Bill Murray (Lost In Translation, The Royal Tenenbaums), sexy Sarah Jessica Parker (TV's Sex And The City), beautiful Patricia Arquette (Stigmata, Little Nicky) and an Academy Award-winning performance by Martin Landau as Bela Lugosi! Hailed by critics everywhere, this touching comedy hit is sure to entertain everyone!
As much as I love Johnny Depp and Tim Burton, this film was maybe just a little too quirky even for me. Still the tone of the film is very fitting for its subject and the performances are all good.
Rated R (MPAA)
