Mortdecai is a scattershot comedy caper film ... destined to fall into that rotation of films you always see on cable networks and wonder if anyone is actually watching them.

It was misguided at every junction.

It was a low-rent Wes Anderson movie.

As I said earlier, it isn't good enough or bad enough to even get a real reaction.

Mortdecai is an okay film that will struggle to find a U.S. audience. A character is given a silly mustache to set the tone right away, and the tone in entirety is just that- silly.

Depp's exaggerated mannerisms and affected speech are sure to infuriate his detractors and please those who enjoy his long line of goofy character creations.

It doesn't take an expert in fine art to see that this is a cold, soulless knockoff of a true masterpiece.

It tries way too hard, getting very few laughs out of a usually pretty reliable cast.

Most caper comedies understand the need to pepper their expository scenes with sight gags. Nothing brings what should be a fun heist flick to a dead halt like two poorly lit actors sitting opposite each other reading out the plot scenario.

I feel "Mortdecai" went into production on the sole premise of "Johnny Depp wears a silly moustache," and people thought the poster would look funny, and at some point someone realized they needed a script.

Mortdecai is just simply horrible
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
July 10, 2016
The rarest kind of awful comedy, where even the characters themselves tangibly hate the movie they're in.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/10

The movie is a worthy warning to Hollywood at large: if you're going to make a comedy, hire some damn comedians.

There's nothing worse than a film that's laughing at itself while the auditorium is silent, and while Mortdecai inspires a few chuckles, it never fully delivers.

He's a character of a bygone age of literature and film plopped down into this time and place but with no realization that anything is different. All in all, you could certainly do a lot worse for a January release.

I have seen worse films, but I'm not sure I've seen a worse performance. And that's really saying something.

A grueling, embarrassing vanity vehicle...
May 30, 2015
This mannered spoof of art-heist caper comedies is one layer of spoof too many, as precious and simpering as its antihero (where does Depp come up with these accents?).

The clothes are grand enough and so are the mansions and castles where it has been filmed. It is a pity then that it also has to be so boring.

The film simmers but never really sizzles.
