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.
The Executive Producer of this film was Joanne Woodward. There is a dedication at the end of the film that reads: "This film is dedicated to Paul Newman; an inspiration, mentor, cheering squad, and darn good reason a gal could still have trouble finding a gent to fill his boots." See more »

Lucky Them stars Toni Collette as veteran music journalist Ellie Klug for a failing Seattle rock magazine whose future might be going online only and she might have no future at all with the publication as she is more interested in partying and flirting with musicians then getting good stories.
Klug goes around the famous alternative rock city looking for new talent such as rising street musician Lucas Stone (Ryan Eggold) who she ends up having a casual relationship with. Her editor forces her to write a story that might save a career with the magazine. Search for missing rock star Matthew Smith who has been missing for a decade after a car wreck. Smith was also her first love when she was young.
Klug hits the road with her wealthy friend Charlie (Thomas Haden Church) who plans to make a documentary film on the search for Matthew Smith.
As a low key road movie, the film is elevated by Haden Church who plays characters like Charlie with effortless ease. The story is slight, Klug is not really that likable, she appears shallow, easily falling for a young charmer.
Still this independent movie filmed in and around Seattle (without showing its famous landmarks) managed to rope in a megastar for a belated cameo appearance.
