Smart, well-waxed adventure comedy ! ! !
Folks who generally panned this film didn't appreciate the clever tongue-in-cheek satire of the typical comedy adventure. The wordplay and the spot-on "Britishisms" alone make it worth a look, but the tension is kept up wonderfully by a great chemistry between beautiful Gwyneth and Depp. No expense was spared to show beautiful homes and scenery, costumes and the stunning Olivia Munn. Think P.G. Wodehouse's "Jeeves and Wooster"...if you enjoy that read and/or British TV rendering (which is ABSOLUTELY great, by the way), you will enjoy this film. Paul Bettany turns in a stellar support as the versatile butler/aide-de-camp. I found many amusing scenes and some very much laugh out loud ones as well. Please do not let the negative box office and some poor reviews discourage you. The wide audience just didn't get it, but I think you will love it ! ! !
It helps if you are over forty...
Just wanted to know if anyone else noticed William Petersen in an uncredited role. He appears in the restaurant/club about thirty or forty minutes in, with blonde hair or streaks. He looks good; appears to be a bouncer. I didn't mind the movie a bit, needs a few more good gags.
