I've watched Benny and Joon 1012 times, and counting. I'm not entirely obsessed, although I hugged the DVD while driving in the car. Haha. My only wish in my life before I die is to meet someone like Johnny Depp. All his movies are amazing. Did I mention my room has pictures/poseters of him from his movies. Like Cry Baby, Edward Scissorhands, all that stuff. Which I have all those movies. Who wouldn't? :)

it's a romantic but fun movie in which Johnny Depp demostrates his talent and versatility as an actor. It's one of his best movies.

it is in fact my sixth favorite movie after the other johnny depp movies listed below. it was entertaining, a bit sad, but being one of the few pg johnny depp movies, it makes a great family film. it was my first mary stuart masterson movie, (i don't think i've seen others), but she had a great performance.

this movie... is the best movie... ever. if you want to watch a movie with a girlfriend or boyfriend, this is the movie to get. if you want to watch a movie alone eating popcorn and chocolate this is the movie to get. it'll make you laugh, cry, and pine for the sexiest man alive... johnny depp. his hair, his skin tone, his voice... beautiful. it's witty with a naive romanticism... you won't regret you bought it!

Johnny Depp's character, Sam, would be enough reason to see this movie, but the rest of the cast and the plot are good enought to make this one of my favorite movies. The routines done by Depp are hilarious and worth taking a look at.

This is a great movie. Funny, serious, and just an entertaining film. For any Depp fan this is a must. He does such a good job being Sam. Amazing!

This movie is great. The acting was wonderful (and might I add that Johnny Depp was at his best). It made me laugh harder than I have in a long time! This movie is the big screen at its best!

I absolutely loved this movie. I only watched it because Johnny Depp is gorgeous, but this movie is wonderful even if you hate him. He looks adorable, the physical comedy is amazing, the story is fun.

I must admit that I, like almost any other teenage girl, only rented this movie to see Johnny Depp...and let me tell you, I wasn't disappointed. But the movie turned out to be a truly great film in addition to the Depp-factor. If you like good music, a nice story, and loads of laughs, this is a movie for you. I would recommend it to anyone. (*Oh, and you'll really get a kick out of Depp's horror movie impersonations... Don't know what I'm talking about? Watch it, and you will!*) Check it out!

This is my personal favourite movie! I love the innocence of Sam and Joon's relationship. The entire movie is well acted. Definetly worth owning and watching many times in a row. (laughs, thinks about how many times I've seen it)

I love this movie, it just makes you feel so good. It makes you really think about love under any circumstance. Sam is brilliant, even though he cannot read. You will find yourself falling madly inlove with him just like Joon Pearl does.
