With art-heist caper Mortdecai, Johnny Depp tries his darnedest to start a kooky Austin Powers-like franchise with a side of bumbling Insp. Clouseau. But dash it all if it isn't a crashing bore, old bean.

Mortdecai isn't particularly funny, but it's also not the Pistachio Disguisey 2015 train wreck the Internet has spent the last few months anticipating. It's brainless, but it's painless.

Depp's strenuously unfunny performance turns a frivolous caper comedy into a grim death march to the closing credits.

Go if you're a raging Anglophile with an afternoon to burn or you just love Depp, even at his hammiest. Otherwise, don't point this thing at you.

The humour is puerile and idiotic, but you may laugh out loud in spite of yourself -- especially if you're familiar with the Carry On movies or the original Pink Panther.

Daffy, dated, and precisely as intended.

It tries way too hard, getting very few laughs out of a usually pretty reliable cast.

Most caper comedies understand the need to pepper their expository scenes with sight gags. Nothing brings what should be a fun heist flick to a dead halt like two poorly lit actors sitting opposite each other reading out the plot scenario.

I feel "Mortdecai" went into production on the sole premise of "Johnny Depp wears a silly moustache," and people thought the poster would look funny, and at some point someone realized they needed a script.
