Trivia

Emil Strago is a revolutionary who wants the Goya painting to finance a violent worldwide uprising. Along the way, he meets Georgina Krampf, and takes up with her, hoping to get the cash he sorely needs. Pasvolsky noted: "Georgina and Emil want to put their own personal stamp on the world. She's lived in the shadow of her wealthy father, and he has a crazy fanatical cause. They're just doing something to get noticed, which can also be destructive. I think they are attracted to each other for the purpose of using each other." See more »

Goofs

When told by Mortdecai that "some members of the fairer sex" find his moustache quite appealing, his wife's response is "Whom, exactly?" This is poor English and unlikely in the speech of a well-educated Englishwoman. 'Whom' is only used to replace 'to who'. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Mortdecai: As you may well know, I am many things. An arts dealer, an accomplished fencer, fair shot with most weapons. I am loved and respected by all who know me - slightly. But I have always felt as if there's something missing, you see. Some final piece of my personal puzzle. I needed something bold, distinctive.
[his cocktail arrives]
Mortdecai: Ah, thank you. The work of art with which I could declare to the heavens, I am Lord Charlie Mortdecai. And this is a little bit of magic is my mustache...

Hilarious; don't believe those hipsters and their high standards
5 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

Seriously, I can't believe how upset people are with this movie; I couldn't even breathe anymore as I walked out of the theater after laughing a lot! Yeah the jokes are stupid, the acting is over-the-top, the story isn't that brilliant and there isn't any deep sh*t plot twist but really, who watches comedy and expect something that will make them contemplate about life??? In terms of entertainment, this movie certainly delivers... Unless of course you're a frigging hipster who can't appreciate any movie that doesn't f*ck your brains out. Come on, Birdman for instance received a lot of good feedback but it's not that funny -- it's just deep. And artsy. It seems the trend these days; if a movie's storyline is plain enough for the layman to understand, these know-it-all guys will say it's horrible, waste of time, blah blah...

There's a lot of movies far worse than this and I don't understand all the hate on this one; probably because it stars Johnny Depp (who was amazing as always, by the way) and they just expect too much. Whatever! Loosen up, guys!
