The part where Mortdecai went to the Great House to see the Duke, starting on page 54), and the Duke talks about the water-baliff...that was in the movie, with Joanna in the lead instead of Mortdecai. A very good scene that Gwyneth played well.

You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.

At last - an appreciative and well-argued review of the movie. Here's the link to KB's F/Bk page:

And another good review of the "Mortdecai" movie. If things get much better, it will have to be re-issued.

Thanks for the review, Don. Maybe the later reviews will help boost DVD, streaming and pay-tv sales.
I have nothing to do and all day to do it in.
