Johnny Depp in the Caribbean Sea? We like the sound of that. And it’s not what you’re thinking, this has nothing to do with ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ …

Finally a movie where we can oh-and-ah at Johnny Depp without him covered in rags or scissors! Johnny plays a tormented journalist, Paul Kemp who leaves the chaos of NYC for the palm trees — and rum — of Puerto Rico.

Based on a the book written by Hunter S. Thompson, Rum Diary is full of adventure. It’s nice to see him play a character that’s relatable rather than someone who exists in another world. And his romance with Chenault (Amber Heard) is exciting and enjoyable to watch.

Hollywoodlife.com attended the NYC Rum Diary premiere hosted by Playboy, and promises you won’t be disappointed! Grab your guy and take him to this movie this weekend, which is out in theaters tonight, Oct. 28th!
