Tourist, The (2010) 
Jolie's Runaway Catwalk!
2/4 stars

Mysterious Elise Ward (Angelina Jolie) travels to Venice to rendezvous with her lover, Alexander Pearce who is not only wanted by the police for the $774 million he owes in taxes but also a mobster (Steven Berkoff) for his embezzlement of around 2 billion dollars. Her every move is being watched by the French and British Police so in order to misdirect Alexander's pursuers, Elise befriends Frank Tempello (Johnny Depp), an American tourist and her co-passenger on the train to Venice, with the hope of convincing both authorities and gangsters alike that Tempello is Alexander and thus throw them off the trail. Frank, the hapless schoolteacher from Wisconin, soon finds himself the target of numerous assassins, with his only ally the woman who got him into this mess in the first place. Elise, for her part, is torn between her loyalty to Alexander and her growing feelings for Frank. This is a romantic comedy and Depp plays the role of fish out of water excellently. Jolie takes control of Venetian streets with a perfect au couture look. Wearing eye dropping dresses and stylish accessories she is beautiful eye candy that turns every head in sight. For support, we have Paul Bettany as arrogant Interpol Inspector Acheson here and Timothy Dalton, 007 for a couple of times in the late 1980s, plays Acheson's boss, the Scotland Yard chief. The scenery is amazing as well. Overall it's a nice time waster with some off moments, but definitely not the disaster some are making it out to be.
