We watched 5 minutes and thought it groaningly awful.
This is one of the stupidest movies I've ever watched. I rank it with two others that were a complete waste of time in my opinion, "Beetlejuice" and "Shampoo". It was a real struggle to stick with Mortdecai to the end...
I don't know why I waste my time reading other people's turgid comments on a film they consider "stupid" which I really enjoyed -- it reminded me of the wonderful Terry Thomas British comedies of the fifties and sixties. I must be the "stupid" one!

Crapola. A stupid movie. One would think that Johnny Depp could attract better material. Silly Comedy. Depp appears to be unsucessfully trying to imitate the late British comic actor Terry Thomas. Depp should never try to speak in a part with a British accent. Depp does not have an ear for a British accent. After 30 minutes too long, I packed this movie in. It is a time waster.
Not really funny, just stupid. Watched about half the movie before we gave up and put in another DVD.
This was a light movie and it gave me a great laugh. I thought Depp was hilarious.
Gwyneth Paltrow looks good in the film but that's about it. This comedy/thriller turned out to be one big farce. ZZZZZZ........
I think Depp is a horrible actor. I wish he'd retire for good.
The modern equivalent of the Keystone Cops. That is to say, overly derivative and a lot of the usual shoot-em-up action/lack-of-imagination. Visualize: a kitten chasing its own tail; only infinitely less amusing. I liked the introduction of Depp's character and his milieu. Disappointingly, that was as far as the interest went. The rest - well, it was kind of like watching a train wreck - horrible, but you can't believe it's not going to get any better. Depp also was a producer. Tsk, tsk.
Mortdecai looks like it is supposed to be a comedy. I spent 50 some minutes waiting for a laugh and had to give up. People should not have to pay money for such boring filming. There really is no variety of scenes, just one scene that all others are patterned after. In short, I was able to only able to sit still for about 50 minutes and then hit the fast forward until running out of scenes. Star Johnny Depp apparently only combs his hair and shows any sense of good dressing when someone else does it for him.
