Storyline Heading
Juggling some angry Russians, the British Mi5, his impossibly leggy wife and an international terrorist, debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie Mortdecai must traverse the globe armed only with his good looks and special charm in a race to recover a stolen painting rumored to contain the code to a lost bank account filled with Nazi gold.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Comedy - While this appears to be star Johnny Depp's usually PG-13-level silliness, the film has an R rating due to a suggestive-to-raunchy streak in its humor, so parents be warned. Language and violence is moderate. All of the known stars have fairly substantial roles except for Jeff Goldblum, who essentially has only a cameo.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Poor ...absolutely bewildering waste of time, talent, energy and money. The thing about bad movies is that in most cases, their badness is fairly self-explanatory in that you can quickly grasp what went wrong with them. "Mortdecai," on the other hand, is one of those rare birds that is so off-putting in so many ways that all I could do for the most part was wonder how so many presumably intelligent people could be persuaded to sign on to produce and appear in something that could not have possibly seemed like anything other than a total mess from its earliest stages.

USA Today Full Review
Below Average Depp's mustached 'Mortdecai' is a piece of low art. ...a whirlwind of horrible British accents, too much gagging, not enough good gags and weak dialogue that, while not exactly terrible, is terribly boring.

NY Post Full Review
Very Poor "Mortdecai" is mortdifying, a mortdal sin of a movie that's headed for the cinematic mortduary. Director David Koepp evidently has such confidence in the comedy that he considers the haphazard plot to be incidental, but the two elements are both so boring in their incoherence that they amplify each other's stultifying effects.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 34 moviegoers:
OK, I'll agree that "Mortdecai" is definitely not one of Depp's better movies, but it's certainly not as bad as the critics would have you believe.
TEENS: The one male and two females all loved "Mortdecai."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: None
ADULTS: These reviews show that about half of both the males and females enjoyed "Mortdecai" very much. Another 40% felt it was an "average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable). What is very unusual is that almost no one rated it above "Very Good" and about 15% indicated that they hated it. So, "Mortdecai" is a bit of a gamble so a lower priced Matinee may be the way to go.
