Juggling angry Russians, the British Mi5, and an international terrorist, debonair art dealer and part-time rogue Charlie Mortdecai races to recover a stolen painting rumored to contain a code that leads to lost gold.
Hard-drinking journalist Paul Kemp takes a job at a besieged newspaper in San Juan, Puerto Rico. His volatile editor, Lotterman, assigns him to tourist pieces and horoscopes, but promises more. Paul rooms with Sala, an aging and equally alcoholic reporter, in a rundown flat. Sanderson, a wealthy entrepreneur, hires Paul to flack for a group of investors who plan to buy an island near the capital and build a resort. Sanderson's girl-friend, the beguiling Chenault, bats her eyes at Paul. His loyalties face challenges when he and Sala get in trouble with locals, when a Carnival dance enrages Sanderson, and when the paper hits the skids. Is the solution always alcohol?Written by
When Kemp prepares to get breakfast with Hal Sanderson, he puts on his glasses. In the next shot, the glasses are gone. He stands up and picks up them up from the table. See more »
The only upside with Nixon is he ain't gonna win.
He's got the grin.
He ain't gonna win. Irish guy's gonna win. But don't ever let him live.
Well how do you know that?
I do horoscopes.

After all the bad reviews, I thought long and hard about watching this, but then respect for Bruce Robinson, and Johhny Depp took over, and I had to watch it. The movie turned out to be really great, the acting was very good, from everybody, the less colorful actor in this was probably Depp, but in relative terms of course, its just, he didn't bring anything new to the table, but all the other actors were a blast, Michael Rispoli was awesome, a great friend in the movie, just one of these roles that you watch it and want to go chill and drink few rums with him. Giovanni Ribisi is just great as a drunk journalist, lately, every role with him I saw, its just pure magic. His role is a bit controversial, or at least as Johhny said in one of his European interviews defending this film, few aspects of the film are not made for the American audience, I guess you have to watch the film and judge for yourself on this one. What else can I say, I was surprised, very underrated movie, don't go in expecting Withnail & I or Fear and Loathing because those movies are masterpieces in their own right, and its very hard to make something similar to them (especially Fear and Loathing) but this film definitely comes close in its atmosphere, pacing, and friendly feeling to Withnail & I, so don't go in expecting it to be Fear or Withnail, but keep in mind the charm is there. Give it a try and you will not regret it. "_"
