    I hesitated to watch this movie because of all the bad reviews, but I actually thought it was great. One reviewer had said that he knew it was a movie he would live to hate just from the trailer and shouldn’t have been surprised. So based on that, I watched the trailer and since it looked like just the movie for me, I watched it. I’ll add that I love a lot of the old mad cap capers, but there are rarely interesting women in them. This one has wit, absurdity, AND interesting women, all held together with a bit of mystery hijynx. I laughed out loud. Through the whole thing. But if you don’t think the trailer is funny, it is probably not for you.

    I am a fickle Johnny Depp fan. Loved him in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Also, The Lone Ranger, Dark Shadows and Transcendence. Some of his other movies, not so much. Mortdecai portrays a snobbish, aristocratic Englishman (Johnny Depp), his beautiful wife (Gwyneth Paltrow) and his man-servant (Paul Bettany). The movie shows Mortdecai being solicited by the British Government to recover a stolen, priceless painting. Mortdecai is recruited due to his history of nefarious business dealings in the art world and that he is financially, legally and morally bankrupt. Most of the movie involves the trio chasing down the painting and, almost, evading the bad guys. The movie is probably more silly than funny but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I did purchase this movie and recommend it.

    I am absolutely mystified by the bad reviews. I can only assume they were written by people who are not fans of British comedy. British humor is understated, dry, based on character, and occasionally loopy. It is a recognizable genre, or used to be apparently. If you enjoy P.G. Wodehouse novels, you should enjoy this.

    This is a very entertaining movie with excellent performances all round, especially from Depp, who gives a brilliant comic performance, for which he deserves an Oscar. It’s a master class in comedy.
