Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Tonto’s Bird Hat Memorial Edition


As discussed in yesterday’s MS-QOTD, 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.  Since we covered the D-Man’s bestest work yesterday (unless you cheated and got all negative before it was time), today it’s time to consider what might NOT have worked, which leads us to today’s (probably mean-spirited) query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) may never forgive the Deppster for what he did to Roald Dahl (and Gene Wilder) with his uber-creepy Willy Wonka, asking: What role do YOU feel is Johnny Depp’s least work?
