Movie Reviewer Andy McKinney: "The Rum Diary not quite good enough."

Stellar cast and fine director cannot save "The Rum Diary", according to Andy McKinney

Andy says,  "It is possible to have a horrible person and a destructive alcoholic be a sympathetic character.  Jeff Bridges recently show us how in Crazy Heart.  The Rum Diary is not remotely in this league.  It can muster only a sub-par two and a half saw blades for the two hour, R rated effort.  Somehow they used up $45 million to make this not quite good enough film.  It has brought in $21 million so far and might a profit eventually.  I had hoped for better, and so did Johnny Depp, one of the producers."
