Juggling angry Russians, the British Mi5, and an international terrorist, debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie Mortdecai races to recover a stolen painting rumored to contain a code that leads to lost gold.
During dinner, Charlie's fiancé makes some disparaging remarks about documentaries. Ellie mentions a documentary about monkeys that is filmed by monkeys. It ends after ten seconds, when the camera is broken. At the end of the film credits for "Lucky Them", the monkey documentary is shown in full. See more »

Musicians - I mean, men - are toxic to me. And you're both, so, nothing personal.

Better than I thought it would be. But then, I've never seen anything that features Toni Collette that I didn't enjoy. There's a very, very small handful of screen actors that can breathe real life into any character and she is among them.
Set in Seattle and actually filmed in Seattle rather than Vancouver, B.C. (how refreshing is that?), it's the story of a rock journalist who sleeps with every musician she covers, while still pining for the one she met and fell in love with in high school who mysteriously disappeared (or killed himself?) at the height of his success 10 years earlier, leaving her bereft and crushed.
When she screws up again on her latest piece, her editor assigns her a "this is your last chance or I'm going to have to let you go" story, which is to be about tracking down what happened to the mysterious, missing legendary rocker, her former lover.
As she reluctantly begins the quest she bumps into a man she very briefly "dated" previously (Haden Church), a tech bazillionaire who now aspires to be a documentary film maker. Through a mishap they become unlikely partners in her search, with him filming the progress.
The story is about their journey into the past and her finally letting go of the relationship that's still messing up her life 10 years on.
