Trivia

This film was the first time costume designer Ruth Myers had worked with star Johnny Depp. She said: "I pray it won't be the last time, because I absolutely adore him. Johnny's incredibly responsive and he gives you an enormous amount to work with. The first time I met with him, I'd found this wonderful old English tweed coat that we both just loved. I'm not sure we even used it in the film but it was a touchstone for his look." In Myers' imagination, Charlie Mortdecai is not just an eccentric; he is also a fashion plate. She said: "Mortdecai loves his clothes. He's a peacock, fluttering around with his tail feathers in the air. He never looks anything but exquisitely turned out and right for the occasion. We put Johnny in perfectly tailored clothes and added all these wonderful, colorful details, like cuff-links that match every suit, and silk ties coordinated for every outfit. Even his socks match! We got the shoes from Church's, the iconic English shoe company. He always has a waistcoat and braces, which gives him a slightly old-fashioned look." See more »

Goofs

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...

Thoroughly Enjoyable
11 May 2015 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

After a long time I saw a comedy movie in which I actually laughed. I fail to understand the issue some of the people have with this film. Probably because these are the sort of people who enjoy spoofs and think only those films are comedy.

The movie was hilarious. The casting brilliant. The acting spot on. Not every movies story line needs to be the great American comedy. But this does pretty well. Some comedies can linger on the scenes making it boring. But the timing in this film was great and it had me laughing throughout.

Not a particularly great fan of Jhonny Depps outside the pirates of the Caribbean franchise. So when I saw how he played Mortdecai's character, I enjoyed it to no end.
