Johnny Depp takes a turn as a clueless mustachioed fop, taking a page from the Pink Panther series and using his witless debonair charm to solve a crime.

But how played out is this premise?

The list of characters that outmaneuver criminals through sheer lack of brain power goes on and on and on.

Does Depp really bring something to the character that can separate this from the pack?
If he brings any of his Captain Jack Sparrow charm to the role and is prepared to get a little silly, then I’d say yes.

Release Date: January 23, 2015

Rating: Likely PG-13
