Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: 21 Jump Street Memorial Edition

by

I was fascinated this week to read an analysis of ‘The Lone Ranger’ which discussed whether or not its failure was entirely due to the presence of Johnny Depp in a key role.  The basic premise was simple: Johnny Depp is best taken in small doses, and when he’s the focus of the story, as in ‘Charlie and The Chocolate Factory’, audiences are cold, whereas his similar turn in ‘Alice In Wonderland’ was better received.  It’s an interesting theory, but for my part, Depp is usually more palatable with his frequent collaborator Tim Burton, and then only about 3 movies out of 5, leading to today’s (hopefully not TOO mean-spirited) query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) will probably always and forever vote for ‘Edward Scissorhands’ as JD’s crowning glory, asking: What role do YOU feel is Johnny Depp’s best work?
