Trivia

The iconic Goya painting intrinsic to the story-line, was created specifically for the film. "We referenced a lot of real Goyas in order to create our own," said Production Designer James Merifield who added: "An extraordinary (portrait artist) painter, named Sally Dray, was given complete artistic freedom to make it. She painted two, because we needed doubles of everything, in case one was damaged during shooting." See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Mortdecai: As you may well know, I am many things. An arts dealer, an accomplished fencer, fair shot with most weapons. I am loved and respected by all who know me - slightly. But I have always felt as if there's something missing, you see. Some final piece of my personal puzzle. I needed something bold, distinctive.
[his cocktail arrives]
Mortdecai: Ah, thank you. The work of art with which I could declare to the heavens, I am Lord Charlie Mortdecai. And this is a little bit of magic is my mustache...

Not marvelous but an amusing film
16 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

Despite beginning in a boring way (I didn't laugh for more or less the first ten minutes), when you realize what is the film about, it improves a lot. From this point to the end, you laugh many times. Plot is a bit absurd, but it is what you expect about it, as it is a comedy, a parody of another films. Johnny Depp plays a role which is very similar to what we've seen before in another films, but that doesn't impede you to laugh with him. I would like to highlight the role Paul Bettany plays. He is the center of most of the funny situations of the film, with some quotes you will repeat even after the end of the film. As a summary, I have to say that it's not an incredible film, but you'll have a fantastic time in the cinema if you chooses it.
