It’s been a slow couple of years for the comedy/caper genre which is a shame since it is one of the most accessible film genres for viewers of all ages. There’s a little something for everyone: attractive-looking (and smartly dressed) characters, slapstick laughs, punchy dialogue, and even a little action thrown in just for kicks. Lionsgate is hoping to breathe some much-needed life into the genre with Mortdecai, the new caper film from director David Koepp which features an all-star cast that includes Johnny Depp, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor, and Paul Bettany amongst others. But is Mortdecai the sort of revival the comedy/caper genre deserves? Or is this caper more boorish than charming?
