He's never off and never not there 100%. Even his acceptance speech at the idiotic "Scream" awards was hilarious.
and...this Letterman clip...fast forward to 6:15 when he starts talking about hosting SNL...
His delivery of "Oh, God....lot of ways" was the funniest thing I've seen in a long time.
"It's all a big Nothing. What makes you think you're so special?"

YMMV on Wes Anderson, but Rushmore and Steve Zissou do not work with any other actor and he is imo the most interesting character in Royal Tenenbaums (especially impressive since his role is pretty small). Broken Flowers breaks my heart every time I watch it. There's nothing else that can be written about Lost in Translation.
Add on his earlier stuff like Scrooged, Groundhog Day (especially Groundhog Day), Kingpin, Ghostbusters, Mad Dog and Glory, What About Bob? (he's great, the movie not so much), Ed Wood...and on and on...and it's not even close in my mind.
Depp's great, Bill's the best.
