This is a movie that never gets to the point, perhaps because it doesn't recognize what the point is.

A cotton candy account that plays loosely with the truth in trying to be hip, contemporary and pink.

Coppola's script is comic-book silly ('We're too young to reign'), and she has studded the movie with miscast talent.

Pretty on the outside, empty on the in.

It's very pretty and occasionally amusing but also dreadfully dull for long, long stretches.

Marie Antoinette never gets to the part where her head gets lopped off, but it would sure perk things up.

The queen may keep her head here, but this Marie is pretty brainless.

Extravagant, lavish, and shallow. Coppola knows about dresses and shoes but not about subtext and complex characters. 12-year old Dakota Fanning couldn't play "older"?

This could be the story of Paris Hilton if she were to be married off to an impotent French Prince instead of dating meatheads armed with camcorders.

With her third film, Sophia Coppola exhibits an annoying preference for style over substance.

Though Dunst looks the part and stunningly carries off foot-high powdered wigs and lavish costumes, her flat affect and simpering voice don't conjure up the requisite sense of arrogant power, corruption and narcissism.
| Original Score: 2/4
