A Fantastic Comedy and a Great Movie (by jonathanmillhouse)
"Mortdecai" was hilarious from start to finish. Critics have been a bit too harsh with this one. Full of cleverly-written lines, this movie is one I will continue to watch time and time again. Johnny Depp plays the Mr. Bean-type role magnificently, and the chemistry between he and Paltrow was great as well. His "sympathetic gag reflex" had be laughing throughout the entire movie. Johnny Depp receives quite a bit of unnecessary hate when it comes to his movie. I for one enjoy each of them. Mortdecai has now joined the ranks of Edward Scissorhands and Sweeney Todd in my list <more>
of favorites. If you enjoy goofy comedies from the likes of Mel Brooks, you will truly enjoy Mortdecai.
It IS Funny, it's just not written for the U.S. sense of humour. (by ancorablue)
Mortdecai, the movie IS actually very funny. The thing is, it's not written for U.S. audiences. Subsequently most American viewers just don't 'get it'. It's a really silly movie, but it's fun and funny and if you 'get it' you will find yourself very amused and you will laugh. It was enough for me to want to see it because Paul Bettany is in it, but add to that Johnny Depp, Ewan McGregor and a small part by Jeff Goldblum and it's got a whole lot of great actors. It's a shame that people who don't understand it give it such a poor review. If you <more>
understand or have had exposure to UK style humour you will likely understand this movie. If you do "get it" you'll laugh and have a good time. It's just not made for the typical U.S. sense of humour.
*Spoilers* This movie is EXCELLENT - Ignore the Depp Haters (by black_dream_lily)
Really?? I can't even get me head around all the bad reviews. I laughed my way through this movie from beginning to end. The plot was light, fun, and indulgent. You know how many movies come to the box office these days that AREN'T tense and dredged with misery and suffer and "real" cough- depressing portrayals of men weighing through their mid-life crises? NONE OF THEM. Mortdecai is FUN. Really fun. I say it's one of Depp's best in the last decade. If you, like me, haven't been able to get behind any of the roles Depp has played since 2004, because they're <more>
all basically "Pirates" done over, this is the movie to jump back on board. Depp's Mortdecai is about as far from Jack Sparrow as he's been able to satisfyingly do since the horrible Chocolate Factory attempt some years back, with wayyy better humor.Sure, the jokes are redundant, but you know what other movies have redundant jokes? Every male-centric movie the 20-something "bros" commenting on here probably like. Anchorman? One giant sexist joke. Pacific Rim? An anime on film. ALL of Family Guy? Basically a handful of sexist jokes told over and over again to butter Seth MacFarland's bread and hookers for the last 15 years. There is NO popular comedy that does not repeat its jokes to the point of inanity. Unless you're an antisocial white 20-something male, you will find something to like about this movie. Don't let these commenters scare you away- they're just biased and procrastinating from their quarter-life crises, misappropriated white guilt, and school exams.Like I said, I laughed through the whole film. No one went to the showing I went to because no one is giving this movie a chance cough- thanks, biased white millennial men of the internet , but please believe me, it's great. The people who worked at the theater even came in to watch towards the end. It's the funniest movie available right now, and with a lot of great movies out there that's saying something.The mustache gag literally, gag is perfect in its cheesiness, Depp hits the character of Mortdecai spot on, Jock is a hilarious "manservant," and even typically irritating Gwyneth is perfect in the role of Johanna. If you're also tired of bleak, depressing films and just want something lighthearted and fun without the heavy and unapologetic sexism of most popular comedies these days, give this movie a chance. Car jokes, 90s jokes, old stereotypes you forgot about, British jokes, American jokes, rich people jokes, a smaller-than-usual dose of sexism, drunk jokes... all the jokes that get lost under today's "bro" comedies, that prefer to focus on women and insults directed at women for any number of reasons.You know why so many dudes are hating on this film? Olivia Munn's in it, but you don't see her boobs. That's literally all there is to hate from a straight male/lesbian perspective.Now if you're a NORMAL person, and want an entertaining, underrated film, don't want anything desperately tragic or full of torture, and CAN make do WITHOUT seeing Olivia Munn's boobs for a night, this is the movie for you. A+. A++. I'd pay the $11 a seat all over again.
After a long time I saw a comedy movie in which I actually laughed. I fail to understand the issue some of the people have with this film. Probably because these are the sort of people who enjoy spoofs and think only those films are comedy.The movie was hilarious. The casting brilliant. The acting spot on. Not every movies story line needs to be the great American comedy. But this does pretty well. Some comedies can linger on the scenes making it boring. But the timing in this film was great and it had me laughing throughout.Not a particularly great fan of Jhonny Depps outside the pirates of <more>
the Caribbean franchise. So when I saw how he played Mortdecai's character, I enjoyed it to no end.
Maybe I just like bad movies (by tuckerbuffington)
I saw this movie with my family a few years ago because of Depp and McGregor and we all ended up laughing the whole time and enjoying it. I'm not saying it's up for best picture or anything but it's certainly a movie you can pop in and get some laughs out of.
amazing (by naguibattalla)
just came back from watching the movie... it was amazing and so damn funny... people who are bashing Johnny Depp, obviously did not watch the movie..no one said it is a blockbuster kind of a movie, but still it is a light comedy... I encourage people to go and see it and I promise they will not be disappointed. the theater was packed with people, everyone was laughing and giggling the whole time... the movie is so hilarious..and it did certainly put me in a better mood.. I have no idea why critics are against the amazing Depp ..He can do any role he wants and nail it.. they are really unfair <more>
If Johnny Depp is having fun, then we should too. (by DarkVulcan29)
Mortdecai is one of those films that you'll love it or hate it. I really was entertained by it, the movie itself is a fun ride, it never tries to be anything more. Johnny Depp's funny performance is a cross between Cary Grant and Peter Sellers, like he does with the Pirate films, he milks it for all it's worth. Unlike his last two films, this was entertaining.The movie is comedic mystery, it has some share of suspense, but it never wavers from that it his still a comedy. Paul Bettany is also quite good has Mortdecai man servant. I clearly see they are both having fun, there almost <more>
like a comedy team. All the other supporting cast like Gwyneth Paltrow and Ewan McGregor. Don't go in this expecting much, just a fun time.
I was moved to write my first ever IMDb review because of the amount of derision heaped on this film by mainly American reviewers. This mountain of vitriol almost stopped me from going to see the film; how glad I am that I stuck to my decision to see it! Johnny Depp, for me, is always good value, and is an actor who seems to be unafraid of challenging not only himself but we, the audience, too. His portrayal of Charlie Mortdecai was based not so much on Ralph Fiennes' M.Gustave, but more on characters from The Fast Show and various Upper Class Twits from the classic Monty Python sketch. <more>
Indeed, as a massive fan of The Fast Show he appeared in the final episode I'm fairly sure that Mr Depp had some influence in securing the comic genius of Paul Whitehouse to play Spinoza. After reading the host of bad reviews I entered the cinema with some trepidation, but was rewarded with a well-written, smoothly-directed, fast-paced concoction which ticked plenty of boxes for me; I did start to wonder if I was watching the same film that some other reviewers watched. Perhaps the humour was just "too English" for some of our friends in the "far colonies"! Please don't be put off by the large number of bad reviews; Mortdecai was well worth the price of entry!
Much laughs in a movie that doesn't hesitate to parody itself (by diokokk21)
No one said that this movie was aiming for anything else than having a good time watching it.My guess is that everybody that disliked the film never liked Inspector Clouseau for example, or Indiana Jones movies. It is fairly obvious that Clouseau and Kato are Mortdecai & Joki in this one, minus Clouseau's unshakeable trust to his police force skills.Lord Charlie never gets as cocky in front of his "team" of spouse and male servant, for nothing more than his good taste and hideous moustache that surely reminds us of his noble background and also provides some good laughs. It <more>
is his "pipe and hat", or "whip and hat", if you prefer, his trademark appearance set. It is fairly obvious that the screenwriters and director tried to reference the opening scene with Temple Of Doom. Lord Mortdecai is a kind of Indiana Jones in the art business, finding lost paintings e.t.c., minus the naive US perspective of a morally right hero. He is a British Lord after all, thus corrupted, pompous and easily sold out to the highest bidder, due to personal debts created by the excesses of luxury and pretentious/decandant aristocratic way of life. Anyway, enough with the U.S. haters, that simply don't get it. In order of an American getting it, the dialogues should have been filled with gangsta rap slang..Then and only then, the joke would be obvious. Now, with this posh dialect and witty selections of words like using a thesaurus they should try to understand what's been said, than just laugh with the out-of-context, expressions such as "yeah", "biatch", "sista". African Americans are still used by/for white ignorance and it seems that it is fairly impossible for Americans to get anything funny that isn't in their cultural status, even if this foreign cultural element rather aims to ridicule itself, than seriously impose on any other culture. Americans must felt offended by Charlie's visit in the US or from quotes like: "have we taken a wrong turn and arrived to a set of a pornographic film?", while they were checking in a hotel, because I just can't otherwise understand their dislike to this film. It seems that Quentin alone can't persuade the American audience of the virtues of well written dialogues with unusual vocabulary choices. Now tell me, which is more preferable: "son of a wh..re" or Charlie's line addressing one of his abusers: "your mother and father only met once and money changed hands..propably less than a 20".. David Coepp is a successful screenplay writer, and a fair director, his all star cast performs the way they should be, and are at points hilarious, the plot is fairly twisting... I just can't understand why Depp is not as good as Sparrow, or Paltrow not as good as Iron Man's Potts, or Mc Gregor not as good as Obi-Wan. You might say that only Bettany provides a performance lesser of what expected of him, but that should be rather credited to the screenplay, or the role itself, than his effort which is adequate. The soundtrack contains one of the coolest songs in a movie Johanna feat. MIles Kane . It is simply one of the best movies for the start of 2015. In the universe of trendy sequels this movie could easily provide a franchise similar to Edward's Pink Panther for the new millenia, much more successful than the American reboot of the series with the god Steve Martin . I wanted to rank it even higher but I considered this unfair to other movies that are interested in achieving something greater than two hours of fun. If you don't get it, don't hate it!!
