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...

Under-rated old fashioned romp
11 May 2015 | by dave-milne-02443See all my reviews

This movie actually made me register with IMDb to publish my displeasure. I've read the reviews here and typically they're from art house aficionados who sooooo want everything to have meaning. News flash, sometimes a movie is just a movie and sometimes humour is unsophisticated. Get over it.

Johnny Depp seems to be a target for these reviewers at the moment. I found his performance/homage to Terry Thomas "rather good". The various cameos and supporting performances were also "rather good" The film is soaked in British humour and I can see how some from the "colonies" just don't get it but for people to give this 1 or 2 out of 10 is beyond belief.
