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.
I conveniently forgot to go to this movie over the weeked to meet a friend there. Why because I could smell the tourist smelly gym shoes from a mile away. I was so right without even knowing. RT gave it a 20% rating and how low can you go Angelina?
That means stay at home and don’t make a trip to see The Tourist until it comes on DVD RT reviews here: http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/tourist/
