The Tourist (2010)
Critic Consensus: The scenery and the stars are undeniably beautiful, but they can't make up for The Tourist's slow, muddled plot, or the lack of chemistry between Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie.

Critic Reviews for The Tourist
"Sure, the plot is preposterous, but the two stars look great, the scenery is spectacular and the supporting cast is a hoot."
In a year of craptaculars, The Tourist deserves burial at the bottom of the 2010 dung heap.
As for Depp, his character makes so little sense that he can hardly be blamed for blinking his way through the movie with an expression of blank-faced puzzlement that recalls Dan Quayle in the 1988 vice-presidential debate.
Jolie! Depp! Romantic locations! Intrigue! Some movies sound too good to be true. The Tourist is one of them.
The Tourist merely asks you to sit back and enjoy the ride, and then makes that task a breeze.
Audience Reviews for The Tourist
To say the plot is preposterous is to say the least, and this piece of garbage unbelievably conceived by three Oscar-winning screenwriters is an insult to anyone's intelligence, with a ridiculous, deceitful ending that turns everything that happened before into sheer nonsense.
Angie Jolie and Johnny Depp in sort of a homage to the adventure/intrigue film jaunts of the late 60s. Venice is the postcard backdrop, along with snazzy hotels and parties and glitterati dressed to the nines. A couple of Bond actors show up to solidify the connection, should one have missed it. The whole shebang's only missing one thing: a leading male. Depp seems to be playing an entirely different movie than everyone else onscreen. Did the director assign this role, or did Depp choose it? Whatever is going on, its as if he could care less what is going on about him, and soon you agree with him.
"The Tourist" is a very poor movie. Of course, it represents Hollywood at it's worst. The movie was never intended to have any value. It's sole purpose was to cash in on the star power of Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie. There is no way that this script would have been brought to life without those names attached. "The Tourist" is as lazy as film-making gets. It's slow, uninspired, predictable, and downright annoying. Speaking of the attached star power, this is just a phoned in performance by Depp and Jolie. They play the same roles that they always do. Brace yourself for this one, Angelina Jolie is engaging in espionage! But isn't Jolie a spy in every one of her movies? Strangely enough, with as much practice as she gets in these roles, she never turns in a believable performance. When Johnny Depp isn't trying, he normally portrays a quirky character that ends up in-over-his-head, and that's exactly what you get here. It's astonishing that nobody figured out that thrusting Depp and Jolie into their comfort zones would result in zero chemistry. Then again, you have to remind yourself that nobody making the movie cared if it was entertaining. Then it all makes sense. "The Tourist" is generic garbage, that I strongly urge you to avoid. If you're a die-hard fan of Johnny Depp or Angelina Jolie, you have to start watching better movies.
