Lord Charlie Mortdecai (Johnny Depp), an art dealer and swindler who owes the U.K. government a lot of money, reluctantly agrees to help inspector Alistair Martland (Ewan McGregor) find a stolen Goya painting. This adaptation of a novel thatā€™s part of a popular series of comic thrillers was maligned by critics and a box-office flop, but it helps to approach it as a bomb. The story is for the birds and there are far too few laughs in this over-the-top, silly adventureā€¦ but it isnā€™t dull and Paul Bettany is amusing as the manservant no woman can resist. Depp is probably having more fun than you.
