“Mortdecai” movie quotes tell the comical tale of one eccentric man tasked with recovering a stolen painting. The crime comedy movie was written by Eric Aronson and directed by David Koepp. In the second collaboration between Koepp and Johnny Depp, “Mortdecai” opened in theaters on January 23, 2015.
In “Mortdecai,” the title character or Charlie Mortdecai (Johnny Depp) lives a lavish life as an art dealer with a beautiful wife, Johanna (Gwyneth Paltrow), and man servant Jock Strapp (Paul Bettany). While being a dashing art dealer with an interesting mustache doesn’t necessarily make him the best choice for the job, Mortdecai is summoned by Inspector Martland (Ewan McGregor) to hunt down a stolen Goya painting.
So Mortdecai, along with man servant Jock, heads to Los Angeles to find the painting but may have an ulterior motive. See Mortdecai is in some financial trouble but if, say, he could profit from the possession of the stolen painting, all that could be taken care of. Accomplishing this all, however, will be a hilarious tasks in itself.“Mortdecai” helps open the 2015 movie season along with the likes of ”The Boy Next Door,” ”Still Alice,” ”The Wedding Ringer,” ”Blackhat,” ”Taken 3,” ”Predestination,” ”A Most Violent Year,” ”The Interview,” ”Unbroken,” ”American Sniper,” ”Into the Woods,” ”Big Eyes,” ”The Gambler,” ”The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” ”Annie,” ”Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb,” ”Mr. Turner,” "Life Partners," "Comet," "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1," and "Horrible Bosses 2.
