The Tourist: Talk about Tourist Traps
"Tourist" stars the lips that sink flicks. When they're on the screen, it's difficult to concentrate on anything else. Not that there's much to think about in this decidedly lightweight movie. They morph (we're back to the lips now) from frame to frame. Sometimes it seems as if you can even see the injection site where whatever it is was pumped into Angelina's face.
"Tourist" also stars the talented Johnny Depp, though not much is demanded of him.
The plot, such that it is, revolves around mistaken identity, plastic surgery (that figures) and bunches of stylish guys dashing hither and yon.
Still, there is a shining star onscreen.The city of Venice never looked so alluring. The Movie Slut suggests pretending you're viewing a travelogue with some Hollywood glitterati lurking in the background.
