Just proves that Disney can only make cringeworthily lame stuff if left to the execs.

"Pirates" at Cannes. Like a Prius at the Indy 500.

"epp, 47, who spent the first two decades of his career in quirky little movies that rarely found much critical support"

What? I thought film critics liked almost all Depp movies prior to the Pirates crap. Some of those movies were really cool, and Depp was good in all of them.

Depp has hit upon a good comic character, but you can wear out ANYTHING after awhile. Too many sequels !

I suppose it pays the rent however.

At least Depp keeps himself busy in an impressively large variety of roles - not one of those 'one note' actors. I'd say he's the "most versatile" actor out there right now and he isn't afraid of "weird stuff" or films that might not earn a lot of money.
