Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 37%

Critic Consensus: “In Time’s intriguing premise and appealing cast is easily overpowered by the stilted filmmaking, which takes a blunt, heavy-handed approach to storytelling”

RT Freshness: 81%

Critic Consensus: “It isn’t deep or groundbreaking, but what it lacks in profundity, Puss in Boots more than makes up for with an abundance of wit, visual sparkle, and effervescent charm”

Critic Consensus: “It’s colorful and amiable enough, and Depp’s heart is clearly in the right place, but The Rum Diary fails to add sufficient focus to its rambling source material”
