I'd gotten The Tourist from redbox (love the availability of redbox) earlier in the day and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Angelina Jolie's character was the epitome of wealthy, British class and she plays parts like that so well. She was beautiful. And, in my book, Johnny Depp can rarely do any wrong. He played the part of Wisconsin tourist who gets thrown into the middle of an international plot well, and also took on his character's twist with perfection. I know this movie didn't get the best of reviews, but I thought it was well casted, enjoyed the thrills and the plot twist and loved the Venetian scenery.
This movie made me want to hop on a plane and start my own Italian adventure. Since that wasn't a legitimate option, I opted to follow up The Tourist with Roman Holiday. Audrey Hepburn, the original American royalty and epitome of class, and Gregory Peck, tall, dark and handsome. I left behind the winding canals of Venice for the history of Rome. If only I could tour the Eternal City from the back of a vespa with Gregory Peck as my guide.
