Juggling some angry Russians, the British Mi5, his impossibly leggy wife and an international terrorist, debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie Mortdecai (Johnny Depp) 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.
Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
Daffy, dated, and precisely as intended.Amy Nicholson, L.A. Weekly, 01.24.2015
Every time Depp gave a phlegmy little stammer and jauntily uttered lines like, "I say, old bean," I wanted to bop him on the same with a rotten tangerine.David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture, 01.23.2015
It's exactly the sort of oddball trifle, like Hudson Hawk, that tends to attract the ire of baffled audiences and grumpy critics. It's also the sort of oddball trifle that, like Hudson Hawk, will put certain aficionados of silliness in a pretty good mood.Jesse Hassenger, AV Club, 01.23.2015
"Don't be tiresome," Paltrow tells Depp at one point. Or did I forget myself and yell that at the screen myself?Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger, 01.23.2015
