This article says it best when it states that the opinion of the author being on drugs says more about the people making that claim than about the author:

A lot of people speculate that Lewis Carrol was a drug addict, but there is no evidence to support that:

I love it! Alice has been my favorite book for a long time and I knew once I saw the preview of Johnny as the Mad Hatter that is was going to be amazing. I mean the book was written during an opium high, it only makes sense that someone as awesomely twisted as Tim Burton would make this movie. I also love that he didn't go the traditional book route, instead it's what happened after she left wonderland. The only thing I didn't like was going to see it opening night and dressing up and being made fun of.

I was so excited to see this movie when it came out because it had always been my favorite Disney movie, plus I was a big fan of the books, so to see it through the eyes of Burton (especially in 3D) was a thrill. I liked how he managed to combine Alice in Wonderland with Through The Looking Glass and some of the characters were hilarious. Loved The March Hare, I wanted to take him home ("Spoon!" lol), and of course The Cheshire cat and the Hatter were great. It kind of dragged here and there, but overall, a really good film, I was pleased.

I just rented it and I've got mixed feelings about it. It's definitely got Tim Burton written all over it, but I thought too much of the film focused on the battle scenes. I think I need to see it again. I couldn't stop laughing at HBC's huge head.

I was so excited for this movie and then circumstances made it so I couldn't see it in theaters I was sooo angry. I finally saw it a few weeks ago and LOVE it. I love the costumes and the whole set. Johnny depp is amazing as usual as the mad hatter The chesire cat also rocks my socks and helena bonham carter as the queen of hearts was spectacular!!!

favourite parts: the end where she turns down the guy and the tea party

characters: Mad Hatter, Chesire Cat and Red Queen
