This movie was put in Average Movies because it is more appealing to the druggie crowd than other people, but not worthy of the Best Overall Movie category.
Fear and Loathing is based on a book by the famous writer Hunter S. Thompson, who instead of reporting on a motorcycle race in Nevada, spoke of his psychedelic drug experience and the mood of different places in Las Vegas.
He became famous for exposing this secret and profound scene of drug users in waking public.
The movie is also funny because of the insanity of some of the actions by the two main characters, "Raoul Duke" and his attorney, "Dr. Gonzo," including Gonzo carving "just a little x" on Duke's forehead.
Definitely a good movie but prepare for lots of drug use and lingo.
