Worthy but flawed
Ricky Gervais being Ricky Gervais. Sadly New York isn't the best place for him to be himself. Gervais is so typically British that he doesn't really fare well within an American environment. There are some funny bits, mostly when he's by himself, but whenever he mixes with the rest of the cast the film is just mediocre.
Rather annoying. Depp's characters is childish and unfunny, the rest of the cast isn't much better. Mortdecai feels like a pastiche on posh British attitude, but it isn't edgey enough to make it funny. It's just a mediocre art heist with poor action scenes, flat comedy and some heavy overacting.
