Its a sweet, romantic comedy which is made even better with Johnny Depp. At times it has its weird moments, but that's what makes it unique.
A cute yet quirky movie that is highly enjoyable, a film for everyone..

" The pair couldn't be any cuter but the barriers to their love make it a compelling romance. A mixture of witticism and lurking mental health problems craft this eccentric love story. "
