so I saw Mortdecai tonight. I really enjoyed it. but it's not for everyone.
did you see Intolerable Cruelty? did you see Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow? did you like them?
well, if you liked them, and you combine that style with a kind of Austin Powers anti-hero, you get something like Mortdecai.
in lesser hands, it would have been unwatchable. but the combined talents of Johnny Depp, Gwyneth Paltrow, and the inimitable Ewan McGregor make this a very amusing film.
it was funny, touching, and entertaining. there is some naughty humor, so don't take the kids.
but I do recommend it. given the givens.
