Trivia

Both lead actors saw their marriages fall apart in 2016. Angelina Jolie surprised everybody for initiating divorce proceedings from Brad Pitt, following altercations over the rearing of their children, while Johnny Depp's marriage to Amber Heard came to an acrimonious end in the full glare of the tabloids.

Goofs

When Frank goes out on the balcony of the Hotel Danieli you can see the Rialto Bridge, which is not near or visible from the Hotel Danieli. This is because the Palazzo Pisani-Moretta, from which the Rialto Bridge is visible, was used as a "stand-in" for the real Hotel Danieli. 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.

Frothy fun - goes down like an éclair
11 December 2010 | by archravenstormSee all my reviews

Opening day (a Friday) enough of the critical reviews I read were negative enough, that I was asking 2 friends if they wanted to switch films - money is tight, yah know? But we agreed there was nothing wrong with checking The Tourist out, at worst there would be some eye candy.

Once again, I'm glad I blew the critics off - it's not that the negative reviews are wrong, exactly. There ARE too many scenes of entire rooms of people turning around to look at Jolie, like a perfume commercial (or someone with toilet paper stuck to their behind). Characters and relationships aren't fleshed out enough, and it's a predictable film - North by Northwest is far superior.

But. As one critic said, it's a frothy diversion, pleasant and fun. Thought the rumpled Depp was low-key and charming, and Jolie was gorgeous and a sympathetic character. There are some amusing twists, and our fairly full theater laughed a lot and was entertained by the film; at no point did any of us lose interest. There are far worse ways to spend a Friday night, and I'd recommend to anyone looking for some diversion and gorgeous views of Venice. Good for anyone looking to unwind after a long hard week.
