The Other Boleyn Girl Reviews

Michael Dequina
TheMovieReport.com

Irresistibly salacious soap opera, teeming with lust, scheming, backstabbing, and some outrageously overheated plot twists.

Apollo Guide

Apart from the close ups of the lead actresses in 16th century garb, this movie is recommended only to soap opera aficionados and lovers of corsets.

A run-of-the-mill costume drama that made me think more about running home and Wikipedia-ing the characters than investing in the story before me.

Sin Magazine

A very entertaining and involving story of family and sacrifice.

July 22, 2008

The history may have been narratively scrunched, but it's all the true lives of some powerful and unfortunate people. Very lush.

Pablo Villaca
Cinema em Cena

Portman confere peso dramático à Ana Bolena, mas Johansson e Bana parecem seguir no piloto automático. Além disso, as liberdades históricas tomadas pelo roteiro são absurdas demais para poderem ser ignoradas.

Film Threat

The falling blade is the only element not missing the mark in this film. I wanted to call for the beheading after Act One, and spare the audience instead.

Groucho Reviews

The film gets a full 'This is a work of fiction' disclaimer, even noting that any resemblance to any person living or dead is unintentional. That tells you something about how much trust to put in these historical CliffsNotes.

NewsBlaze

An all in the dysfunctional family royal romp with incestuous tendencies, this richly textured, dramatically disciplined, erotically laced and emotionally taut creation makes for weirdly kinky historical analysis, but pretty steamy pre-tabloid melodrama.

If only there was some nobility among these royals.

Windy City Times

In an earlier era this would have starred Bette Davis and Miriam Hopkins and in its way, The Other Boleyn Girl is just as trashy and enjoyable.

If the late Aaron Spelling had lived long enough to produce Showtime's The Tudors, the result might have been something like The Other Boleyn Girl...

Peterborough This Week

With plenty of betrayal, attempted incest and beheadings crammed into this period episode of The Young and the Restless, The Other Boleyn Sister has appeal in an otherwise stiff genre.

PopMatters

Such unwieldy mechanisms only draw attention to the movie's narrative contrivances.

Empire Magazine Australasia

A rather titillating take on a racy historical novel, this is perhaps too ambitious in intent. More time, or more pruning (perhaps they should just have focused on The Boleyn girl), would have produced a richer and more enjoyable film.

At the Movies (Australia)

It's a fairly uninspired screenplay. And the same can be said for both the Boleyn girls. They are both extremely fetching in their tight bodices but unengaging as characters.

Hey, wait a minute, is the movie supposed to be this funny?

Feels like an Oscar-bait title that somehow got its DNA mixed up with a daytime soap opera.
