A hallucinogenic road movie based on gonzo jounralist Hunter S. Thompson's semi-autobiographical 1971 novel.
Whacked-out journalist Raoul Duke and attorney pal Oscar Zeta Acosta groove from L.A. to Vegas to cover a motor cycle race. Along the way they pick up Lucy, a teenage runaway who joins the pair on their madcap weekend.
One of the most hilarious and asinine movies ever produced. My gut still hurts from laughing. Thank science for acid! As usual, Johnny demontrates that he can play any kind of character he sets his mind on since he doesn't care to become type-cast- with possibly the exception of his playing Capt. Jack Sparrow (although that franchise is probably ending soon). Because Johnny's character and the movie's plot are so bissare and over the top, I highly recommend watching it.
Wow. Don`t drink and watch this movie at the same time. Or better yet do. Depp`s acting is top-notch.
