The Rum Diaries vs. Wichita

For the Hunter S Thompson fans this is a must see. For the droids who can’t understan good writing see the below;

WICHITA –The Wichita-Johnny Depp feud continues to get attention.
The Atlantic Wire, an online news aggregating branch of the Atlantic magazine, reports on the battle over how intelligent Wichita moviegoers are with a story headlined “Johnny Depp Thinks He’s Too Smart for Wichita.”
It all started with a Sunday story in the Guardian newspaper in Britain in which Depp, trying to defend the lackluster performance of his movie “The Rum Diary,” blames Midwest audiences such as those in Wichita for not appreciating smart movies.
After Have You Heard? reported Wichitans’ reactions to Depp’s comments, the Guardian did a follow-up report on its front page on Thursday.”

It’s not hard to see why the audience in Wichita didn’t go to see this.
