The reviews are in:

- Todd McCarthy, Variety

"A thriller-diller from start to finish: scary, monstrously funny and melodically thrilling. And Depp is simply stupendous."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

All in all it's very a very well put together soundtrack and includes much of the dialogue just as the Original Broadway recording did."
