Trailer for Sale or Rent: Mortdecai

Posted By on Sat, Jan 24, 2015 at 11:00 AM

This film was not screened for critics locally, so we took a look at the trailer.

Film: Mortdecai
Opening Date: Fri., Jan. 23
Stars: Johnny Depp, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor, Paul Bettany
Necessary Info: An art-theft caper

Trailer Analysis:
All four leads are working with fake and/or ridiculous accents. The plot actually is still in doubt: Lost painting? World revolution? Chase in a sidecar? Some antiquated haberdashery gets an airing: twirly mustache, ascots, plus-fours, cane and sock garters. Major takeway: “Quirky” Johnny Depp is tiresome.

Sample dialogue: “She is a well-known nymphomaniac.”

Based on these 2:31 minutes, should you go? If you are a Razzie voter, this looks like mandatory viewing.
