January 23, 2015
A whirlwind of horrible British accents, too much gagging and not enough good gags, and weak dialogue that, while not exactly terrible, is terribly boring.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

The leaden story is by-the-numbers stuff.
Full Review | Original Score: 5.4/10
March 27, 2015
An abysmal would-be comedy that sees the quickly falling star delivering a performance that's as hammy and unfunny as it is dull and embarrassing.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
January 22, 2015
Though the books are brilliant, Depp's attempt to make his own Terry-Thomas movie feels tired and more than a little tortured.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
January 23, 2015
Shrill, stupid and often sexist, Mortdecai sinks due to an embarrassingly overwrought turn from Johnny Depp.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

Mortdecai is just simply horrible
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
January 23, 2015
What looked funny in small, trailer-sized doses turns into an interminable death march when applied to an almost two-hour run time.

Go if you're a raging Anglophile with an afternoon to burn or you just love Depp, even at his hammiest. Otherwise, don't point this thing at you.

January 23, 2015
A sh-tshow from start to finish, a theoretically whimsical comedy wherein the actors physically begin to shrink as it goes along, as if they realized what they had gotten into just a beat too late to possibly escape.
Full Review | Original Score: D

Depp's performance is insipid, scraping the bottom of his wardrobe of over-the-top weirdo personae.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
January 28, 2015
What should be a three-minute SNL sketch unfurls into a feature-length snooze.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.7/10
January 22, 2015
Depp massively overplays it in this embarrassing and shockingly unfunny self-produced farce.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
January 23, 2015
Mortdecai lacks the wit and charm that would've been necessary for this farcical pastiche to work, resulting in another disappointment from Johnny Depp.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

Mortdecai is a completely misguided attempt at bringing Kyril Bonfiglioli's beloved cult characters to the screen, utilizing unfunny jokes that are repeated ad nauseum, and featuring a downright embarrassing performance from Johnny Depp.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
January 23, 2015
Mortdecai is content to stroll casually and unassuredly through its paces, taking long, long intermissions for Depp to whimper and giggle.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
January 23, 2015
A spectacular mess, and the only real shock comes from the number of A-List talent involved on both sides of the camera.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

This wilfully terrible film marks a significant juncture in Johnny Depp's peculiar career. It is, to him, as the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand was to the Balkan League.

Energetic but obstinately unfunny, David Koepp's throwback farce is a showcase for Johnny Depp at his most self-amused.
February 4, 2015
Depp's Charlie Mortdecai, a conglomeration of grunts, bleats, facial tics and a moustache that becomes a subplot by itself, is a hoot, but highly unlikely to join Capt. Jack Sparrow, Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood or Willy Wonka in his hall of fame.

January 27, 2015
There's a chasm between grounded character comedy, touched by impeccable timing, and a kook gurning for the camera.
