I saw that pirate movie Tuesday night, something I'd thought to avoid, but rather enjoyed watching Johnny Depp flip-flop about. He really is hilarious, though they could have cut out all the rest of the scenes, so far as I was concerned. Or they might simply have written him into each. That would have been alright with me and my bladder which, after two hours, was hardly content to abide the next twenty-five.
I think if I were Keira Knightley, I would have intentionally botched the big kiss scene over and over again, so that many many more takes would be required. Johnny Depp with kohl blackened eyes, a drunk gay affectation, gold teeth and dirty fingernails, is still Johnny Depp. Maybe even more alluring to get the shades of goofball when he's usually so unswervingly cool. As my previous (and straight, btw) roommate David once wrote, "He is the sexiest fucker alive; there is no female equivalent. He makes my gay nerve twitch."
