A lead performance that makes things bearable is not nearly enough to salvage a problematic effort.

Audience Reviews for Blonde

I haven't really watched a lot of e Marilyn's films. so I'm unsure whether or not too much of Poppy's own personality bubbled to the surface, especially when Marilyn smiles and laughs suddenly during her most troubled moments.Once in platinum hair and with that famous beauty freckle. Montgomery does look quite a bit like the legendary sex symbol whose troubled, tortured private life is deeply explored here. Whether this movie is true to the actual life of Marilyn or not,Let Marilyn speak for herself in her own many newsreel clips and movies and records. She does herself better than any of these dimestore dollies.

Poppy Montgomery is surprisingly amazing and gives a very intelligent and moving performance as Norma Jean Baker/Marilyn Monroe in this bopic TV movie. Marilyn Monroe's piece of fiction portrayal life seemed really interested to know about her childhood to adulthood before her death. Ann-Margaret, Patrick Dempsey, Patricia Richardson and so many more fantastic actresses and actors took the stage in this great drama of a legend.

6.5/10 Inspite of it's 4 hour length, this movie is very entertaining. The only slow part is the begining, when Marilyn Monroe was a child. It looks pretty accurate to me as well. The big surprise is Poppy Montgomery's uncanny resemblance to Marilyn Monroe at times. She did a terrific job. It does have that made for televsion look though.
