Depp does have a restraining order on him due to domestic abuse allegations, so I can understand people not liking him. Obviously beating your wife is much more acceptable than feeling up a stranger so his career has not been affected.

He did it in a comedy Keef voice though, so that's ok.

Not hatred - they are just bad actors in bad movies. There’s nothing new in that.

Neither one of them is a bad actor.

I think this is known as Chris Brown syndrome

I'd agree with that.

I’ll agree when he remakes “ I was a Male War Bride” & not a minute before.

The Truman Show is ace, and Man on the Moon and Eternal Sunshine are pretty good, especially given his lack of serious acting chops.

Be that as it may, DF -

my problem is on an instinctive level. I can't watch him.

I usually can't watch him either, but on The Truman Show he had a director (Peter Weir), who managed to keep him in check, and he gave an excellent restrained performance.

I like him overall. I grew up with crappy Jerry Lewis movies so that "Ace Ventura" type stuff is right up my alley. I think his dramatic turns are quite good - I especially like "Eternal Sunshine.."

I think the hard part with him is when he brings more to the task than is required (I'm thinking "Liar Liar"). I really like him when he goes overboard and the material seems to withstand this.

Also, he's become something of an outspoken hippy of sorts lately. He even shaved off that stupid beard. I like him.

Yeah I like him to, and quite a few of his movies.
I was worried he was heading down a Robin Williams route there for a while.
