Fun tidbit: Johnny Depp wore contact lenses which served as sunglasses so he wouldn't be squinting in the sun all the time.
What reviewers say: "Maybe the best Disney movie that is not a cartoon. Johnny Depp is fantastic in this film, he was actually nominated for an Oscar for it. The story is so simple and the characters are great." -Clinnel
