The Other Boleyn Girl Reviews

Michael Dequina
TheMovieReport.com

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Margaret Pomeranz
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.

Linda Cook
Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)

A depressing soap opera of a film, "The Other Boleyn Girl" makes early English history, at least for women, look like Hades itself. And maybe it was. After all, a woman's reputation and worth did not depend on so much on her education, personality and goo

Sean Means
Salt Lake Tribune

Screenwriter Peter Morgan (The Queen) gives the bodice-ripping action of Philippa Gregory's novel a high-tone gloss by stressing the political machinations at work behind the bed-hopping.

Guardian

It is absurd yet enjoyable, and playing fast and loose with English history is a refreshing alternative to slow and tight solemnity; the effect is genial, even mildly subversive.

Ravishing frocks and heaving bosoms are the main constituents of The Other Boleyn Girl, an entertaining bodice ripper lightly disguised as historical fiction.

There are a few flaws including historical inaccuracies, but the spirited jousting of Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson as the Boleyn Sisters tantalises and tempts us royally
