Trivia

With a whole world of styles, from which to choose, from huge handlebars to barely-there pencil moustaches, Johnny Depp and Joel Harlow zeroed in on a look that perfectly fit Depp's character of Charlie Mortdecai. Harlow said: "There's a kind of Hercule Poirot influence, because it is a bit fuller in the middle and has this little flourish on the side. It's very groomed and manicured to complement the character. He's very polished, so I can't really imagine him having any other style of moustache." 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...

To be fair
23 May 2015 | by fabi-stoldtSee all my reviews

For all those reading the horrific reviews some of the people have been giving this movie, do not be scared away from this excellent piece of art. Granted, it isn't deep nor is there any part in which ones foresight is tested but that is the beauty of it. The absolute ingenious acting of Johny Depp in a mockery of today's moving picture industry. I'd say give it a go and try not to take it too seriously, as I presume wasn't its intent in the first place! I shall not proclaim this is one of the greats, but I will come forward and say it is worth more than the 5.5 it currently has. For anyone who wants to learn some fancy English this is also a must-watch!
