Trivia

A number of subtle criticisms were made throughout the film towards Scotland Yard by the screenplay writers. The most notable was that the cheque written by Pierce was actually made out to: "Seven hundred and forty four million pounds" and was therefore worthless, however, Chief Inspector Jones was too inept to realise. Chrisopher McQuarrie reportedly confessed in an interview, "I wanted to make them (the Yard) appear as stupid as they truly are. When my baby poodle was stolen as a child, they didn't lift a finger to locate her despite all the letters I sent. By the time we recovered Fifi's head, I had lost all respect for the police."

Goofs

When Frank is walking on the roofs of Venice, he sees Elise at the other side of the Grand Canal, near the market, but a few moments later he is on that same side of the Grand Canal and jumps from the market building upon a market stall. See more »

Quotes

Reginald Shaw: [to his men about Pearce] You know he will be with her. They'll be staying at one of the grand hotels. The Gritti, the Regina, the Danieli. I want you to keep a watch on all of them. You can kill the girl, but you can't kill him. Not until I have my money that is.

Director von Donnersmarck needs to be Donnersmacked
10 December 2010 | by TheMovieMarkSee all my reviews

Considering the fact that Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie are two of the biggest stars in the world, you may have at one time flippantly claimed, "I'd pay $10 just to watch them read the phone book!" Well, if you decide to ignore my advice then you'll have the chance to put the equivalent of that theory to the test if you lay down your hard-earned dinero to see The Tourist.

Displaying the focus of an attention deficit schizophrenic, The Tourist weaves its way through an odd mixture of romantic, comedic, and mysterious elements. I have no problem with a film that embraces multiple genres, as long as it can do so effectively. The problem with this film is I was never sure what type of reaction the film wanted to evoke. The romantic orchestra soars one moment, we're treated to a few slapstick shenanigans the next, and then comes the brooding minor key to remind us that there's a mysteriously mysterious mystery afoot! I would not have been shocked had Rowan Atkinson made an appearance.

Plus, the "climactic" twist isn't as clever as it thinks. I suppose one might be forgiven if he or she finds it cutesy, but even if you do fall for it, by the time it arrives your interest will be too detached to care.

Eliciting little more than a few chuckles and a whole lot of apathy, The Tourist makes its mark as one of this year's most pointless and useless films. I can't single anything out as being truly awful, but neither can I think of a single reason why you should consider spending $10 a pop on a film that offers absolutely nothing new to the cinematic universe. The Italian backdrop is nice to look at, and Jolie and Depp are adequate, if not dynamic in their chemistry, but it takes more than the visual image of Depp traversing rooftops barefooted and in grandpa's pajamas to be deemed worthy of my time.

Entertain, engage, educate, or humor me. That's all I ask. The Tourist decided to go with "none of the above," therefore I encourage you to think twice before making this your selection.
