Movie Skip - Donnie Brasco

I don't care if it's ranked highly, 7.7 out of 10 stars, on IMDB....I thought the film was pretty weak. As a *Mob* flick, I found the dialogue and plot cheesy and incredible compared to, well, shows like The Sopranos or even compared to *personally knowing* a few Italian waste management consultants in Philly and NY/NJ.

It's no small feat to botch a true story!

And I never did think much of Johnny Depp as an actor. Why exactly is he so *critically acclaimed*?

I do wonder if there were any movies that turned out better than the original books...
