Mortdecai is one of those strange films of which I can't figure out how it ever got made. On one hand it's kind of a muddled mess that's clearly destined to be a box office flop. But on the other hand it's pretty fun, bizarre and different making it a shame that it's destined to be a box office flop. In fact, my money says this one will be remembered well come next year's Razzies. But it's really not nearly as bad as all the reviews you're going to see will imply. I think it might even be worth your time later in the year on VOD. But you can certainly pass on seeing it in theaters.
Who is this movie for? I'm not really sure to whom this movie is targeted. But it's plenty enjoyable enough if you allow yourself, walking the line between idiotic and fun.
