The HFPA received ridicule when they nominated it for a Golden Globe in the Best Film (Musical or Comedy) category, since it was not marketed as a comedy. The director, however, stated he felt the film was more comedy, than drama. Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp were also nominated for Best Lead Actor and Best Lead Actress respectively. See more »
When Elise drops Frank off at the airport dock in the early morning, she is wearing a beige sweater and black slacks. As she boats away from Frank and across the bay, she has changed clothes and is wearing a gray dress, heels, and gloves, and it is much later in the day. See more »

Considering the previous great movie of this director(The lives of others), I was expected far more complicated story for "The Tourist". Although it has an amusing and even surprising story line, it leaves you with nothing when you step out of the cinema. None of the performances catches you as a great job. Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp are good choices to attract the fans to the cinemas and they will almost quench their thirst of seeing sensually powerful Jolie and smart Depp with his charming sense of humor. But you think everything is formulated. after all that chasing and hiding and surprising themes, there is nothing about human being or conscientiousness that stays with you after the movie. It would've been a good "James Bond" type movie with some more action scenes. Specially when you see Timothy Dalton as a British Chief Inspector, this idea becomes ironically stronger.
