Johnny Depp has to be in on the joke, right? I mean, even if he’s given to playing these flamboyant, seemingly timeless characters, every once in a while he’s gotta come back to reality in a film about a regular dude in an office who’s trying to raise an adopted kid or something, right?
Maybe, but that film is definitely not Mordecai, which sees Depp as an art dealer/thief trying to get his hands on a painting that may contain the code to a bank account filled with Nazi gold.
Ok. They had me at “Nazi gold.” If that sounds interesting, the supporting cast of Gwyneth Paltrow, Paul Bettany, Oliver Platt, Aubrey Plaza, Ewan McGregor and Olivia Munn may endear you even more to the film.
