Mortdecai is the tale of a crooked English art dealer, who has a nasty habit of conning his customers. Starring Johnny Depp, Gwyneth Paltrow and Paul Bettany, one would expect this movie to be rather good, but sadly that isn't the case. There's a lot of potential, but its not fully realized through the course of the film. It ends up being a well acted bore.

Mortdecai is an art dealer, who's run up a bad debt to go along with his reputation for swindling his customers. This forces him to make a deal with Martland, an Mi5 agent, to recover a recently stolen painting called the Goya. In return he gets 10% of the sell value. Thus begins his Journey to find the painting, along with his trusty sidekick, Jock Strapp. Unfortunately for him, his wife Johanna is a target for Martland's attentions. It also quickly becomes clear that the painting is a target for many thugs and art dealers around the world. Is there a secret that this painting is hiding?

This is a very disappointing movie. It could have been so much more than it is. As it stands, Mortdecai is far lesser than the sum of its parts. The jokes mostly fall flat and there's never a moment which has you roaring with laughter. At most, mortdecai can elicit a chuckle or two from the viewer. It's not bad in any department, but thats the best thing that can be said about this film. You can skip this one.
