Of course, WTBR was based not only on "Fear and Lothing in L.V." but on "Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail" as well, so comparisons only go so far...
I wholeheartedly disagree. WTBR was a complete disaster. I couldn't sit through it. Del Toro's "Dr. Gonzo" was hilarious a la..."You have commited a breach of faith."...and Depp was spot on as Raoul Duke. Murray was funny, but the script was ****. The late HST wrote about it in one of his books.
