The Tourist is why I hate Hollywood.  This movie is such tripe that not only did I fall asleep on it only ten minutes into it, but when I woke up and watched a few more minutes realized that it was like a wedding cake without the wedding, just window dressing and glam dressup for A-list stars like Johnny Depp  who plays a math teacher from the states and Angelina Jolie is a British something or other.   I mean I have no particular problem with the acting that went on, or with the two leads.  That was not the problem.  The problem:  it was the lack of any kind of fucking story line!  It does not get any worse than this movie.

I thought I would watch it because I plan to relocate to Europe.  I wanted to see the sights so to speak.  But hell I get more out of and enjoy “International House Hunters” than this Hollywood crap called “The Tourist.”  Don’t waste your time. I didn’t. But it did make my list of worse movies of 2010.  Yes, it did.
