I need to see this again before I comment. I don't really remember it that well.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Sweet-natured film about put-upon auto mechanic Quinn, who tries to look after his mentally ill sister. Almost accidentally he stumbles onto the perfect companion for her: a male misfit who sees himself as a reincarnation of Buster Keaton. Endearing performances put over this fable, which otherwise would strain all credibility. Depp is impressive as he re-creates silent-comedy routines by Chaplin, Keaton, et al.
