Christopher Cross of Infinite Respawns writes: In the pantheon of terrible Johnny Depp roles, two have recently stood out as egregiously bad. The first was Tusk, a movie that isn’t great, but becomes outright terrible when Depp is thrown into the mix. Thankfully, his character is not the focal point of the film and is played off as comedic relief, with a minor role in the latter half. Mortdecai is perhaps one of the worst roles Depp has taken on, and it is because the character of Charlie Mortdecai is only a slightly more intelligent version of Guy LaPointe (Depp’s role in Tusk) and is meant to be the primary reason we enjoy the film. The truth is, Charlie Mortdecai is the primary reason that the film is a travesty.
