An ok film that tried to be a serious international espionage film on the verge of being a light comedy, as it was had to take it very seriously. I have seen better.

I had low expectations but wanted to see the locations. This is soft-core porn for married ladies as was the remake of The Thomas Crown Affair except that the latter was stylish and somewhat intelligent. Campari product placement, a laughable imitation of one of the ball scenes from The Leopard, a gorgeous terrace restaurant at the Bauer Hotel on a starry night,
Angelina Jolie high on her own ego trying to convince us that she has class and Johnny Depp- I suppose purposely- unconvincing as a Midwestern math teacher. The villains are cartoonish and I thought the two leads had zero chemistry. This is an alternate reality in which Italians speak English and there are even a couple of (formerly?) respected Italian actors slumming as hotel staff and police officers. Johnny Depp seems to have been forced to do this movie to pay off a gambling debt or something or is he just too quirky to play suave?

A charmer of a film. Depp, Jolie, and the rest of the cast are in fine form. And la Bella Venezia . . . Well, Venice is Venice, no more charming and seductive a city like this one there isn’t. (Okay, perhaps Paris . . . mais. . .)

If I had believed the poor ratings in these comments I would have missed a movie that reminded me of Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn in "Charade" - plenty of plot twists - or Cary Grant and Grace Kelly in "To Catch a Thief" - which had Monaco rather than Venice - or Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint in "North by Northwest" - there was some good verbal fencing on a train between those two.
We both enjoyed this romp and it was nice to see a strong female lead. Can you imagine how Grant would have handled Jolie's request that he invite her to dinner? Perhaps: "I'd be delighted if you would join me for dinner."

Not worth renting.
Too slow, acting is flat.
Venice is, of course, lovely.

Nice scenery in Venice. Inoffensive plot. A good watch for after 10pm when you're not too lucid.
Am I the only one who thinks Angelina Jolie looks scary? Her face is so freaky and cartoony she looks like she could be in that scary old puppet show, the Thunderbirds.

Low action, predictable story but you do get to watch two of the world's most beautiful actors in one of the world's most beautiful cities: Venice. An acceptable romantic comedy to snuggle up to with your honey.

A very slow start and a poorly scripted plot make this thriller totally forgettable. You have to be a fan of the Jolie/Depp duo to get anything out of it. The scenes in Venice is the only bonus for me.

Nothing special. I caught on early so no shock with the ending. Not the worse way to kill a couple of hours.

Exquisitely charming and funny and put-on, a comedic thriller brilliantly acted against Venice's lush beauty, including a ball.
