A silly inane story lacking strong characters and ay sense of adventure.

The Tourist is best considered an expensive travel ad for Venice rather than the sexy, action-packed, sassy thriller we were all hoping for.

It is disheartening on a profound level to see a group of talented actors and filmmakers come together at the height of their powers and produce something of such soul-killing drudgery as The Tourist.

Tepid romance and sluggish action can't match the beauty of Venice.

It's a beautiful film to look at. Unfortunately for The Tourist, looks ain't everything.

Hampered by its lack of narrative tension or palpable sense of romance.

one of the oddest star vehicles to come out of the Hollywood dream factory in some time...Depp and Jolie know exactly what they are doing. Jolie has never been more ludicrously Barbie-Doll/Sophia Loren glamorous

Everyone involved is so clearly phoning it in that you can practically see them checking their wallets to make sure that the paycheck is still there.

As is often the case with movies like this, it looks like the stars are having a whole lot more fun than the audience.

A creaking "star vehicle" for two stars who should have known better, and maybe had a little chemistry.

On paper, The Tourist sounds like a dream film -- two of the hottest actors alive, in a charmingly frothy romantic crime caper set in one of the most beautiful cities on earth. So why didn't it come alive on screen?

The film bears less resemblance to the vintage international-intrigue movies it tries to imitate than, well, an e-cigarette does to a Gitanes.

There's not enough oxygen in any room for these two giant egos to share... ...they're about as cuddly together as alien intelligences from different galaxies making first contact.

The plot is preposterous. So what you need is a movie that floats with bemusement above the cockamamie, and actors who tease each other.

Jolie's role in this film is somewhere between femme fatale and Girl from Ipanema -- she spends a lot of time walking slowly while those she passes say, "Ahhhhhhh."

"The Tourist" is a facsimile of a masquerade of a gloss on "Charade," and on all the lesser cinematic charades that followed in the wake of director Stanley Donen's 1963 picture.

This woefully botched mystery-adventure-thriller-caper-romance-comedy, or whatever it was meant to be, is no fun at all.

The combination of two lazy, smug performances from its over-confident stars and a director mismatched with his material make for 2010's biggest "It seemed like a good idea at the time..." dud.

It bides time while watching extras watching Jolie do her fashion-model strut, her famous lips pursed just so. It doesn't help that she is so icily imperious that she seems more like a creepily gorgeous space alien than an actual human being.
