  • Johnny Depp has done so much for us. Let us now return the favor and pretend Mortdecai, a disastrously misjudged career low, never existed. show more

  • Mortdecai is an anachronistic mess that never succeeds in re-creating the breezy tone or snappy rhythm of the classic caper movies that it aims to pastiche. show more

  • Mortdecai is by no means a disaster — the occasional joke lands, and there’s at least some fun to be found in the frenetic farce of all the conspiracies and the running-around... Still, I spent most of the movie waiting for it to find its rhythms and set a witty pace for itself that would allow the humor to build and the outrageous situations to pay off grandly. show more

    Depp mumbles too much; incoherent. Poorly written comedy; why?

    Normally I love Johnny Depp....but this was really dumb. He is so above a movie like this. Very disappointing. I laughed a couple times....but mostly because of the absurdity. Ugh

    It wasn't as bad as the critics made it out to be. It wasn't the best film either. There were some parts that were funny. But it was a long movie just watching Johnny Depp. There was little other character building.
