After Richard (Johnny Depp), a well-presented and well-respected college professor discovers he has terminal cancer, he launches himself back into life with a new penchant for rulebreaking, alcohol and drugs. His wife Veronica (Rosemarie DeWitt) and Harry (Ron Livingston), the college chancellor, are horrified by his new character and rebellions, though his students love his law-defying ways. Written and directed by Wayne Roberts.~Clare Perez-Izaguirre Lopez
Johnny Depp really does a great job in this movie playing a conservative liberal arts college English professor whom has contracted terminal cancer. He decides, Johnny Depp's character, that he can let go of everything and live the last chapter in his life the way he has always wanted too. It is really not for young people below the age of 16, but then again what would you do if you had terminal cancer and maybe six to twelve months to live ???
Johnny Depp is a Professor...I was walking past this movie at Best Buy, never heard of it, but I had to buy it. It is a fun movie. Nothing more, nothing less. I enjoyed the 1.5 hours and you might too.
The Professor from the And 1 tours doesn't have anything on this professor. It's Johnny Depp, Edward Scissor Hands in the flesh. Hey Gilbert tell Charlie and the Chocolate factory I'm fear and loathing Best Buy because they are all out of my professors special elixir. Say where's Arnie!!!
I had no problem finding this movie online at Best Buy. The movie came in excellent condition and much sooner than expected. I’ve never been disappointed with this store, they always back their merchandise.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rating 5 out of 5 stars with 1 review
Johnny Depp at his best!!!
Owned for 3 weeks when reviewed.
What would generally be a heartbreaking and depressing story is turned into a comedic lesson on dealing with life and death. The entire cast is amazing in this thought provoking movie. Definitely a must see!
