An incredibly depressing re-make of Notting Hill.

Sets the proceedings within a misty cloud of conjecture.

By the time Diana goes gay-clubbing to the sounds of the Pet Shop Boys' 'West End Girls' I began assuming the filmmakers actively hated their subject.

Yes, Diana is the poor little rich girl, but the opulent settings, private jets, yachts, and chauffeured cars prove peculiar and distracting affectations.

This affair hardly plays as being more than the pre-Dodi Fayed footnote it still is today, much less deserving of this grand epic romance treatment given by the filmmakers.

It may not be anything all that special, but it's harmless, well-made and entertaining on its own terms.

If I didn't know John Hughes was dead I would have sworn he had written this film.

Are the micro-biopics that don't even bother to provide overviews of their famed subjects' entire lives, but instead lean on the spectacle of celebrity impersonation, the new camp?

Diana might have been flawed and scheming and love-starved, but this film doesn't help explain that. Nor does it illuminate the common touch and humanitarian side that endeared her to a global audience.

Not a lot different from whatever movie Katherine Heigl has made lately.

The film can't find the woman beneath the fašade, despite Watts' best efforts. Maybe she didn't exist. Or maybe there's a better movie to be made.

Hirschbeigel says she's a miracle, the screenplay leans toward monster. I wish the film was interesting enough to make a case for both possibilities.

It's ... a pity that her life is reduced to such a forgettable movie.

This visually polished, Oscar-baiting docudrama chronicles her final two years, and even in death she's a subject of invasive speculation.

If you are going to make a film about the late Princess of Wales, you are obviously going to choose the guy who directed "Downfall," about the last days of Hitler, and the actress who played opposite King Kong.

the unnecessary tale of the Princess of Wales' last true love, is a vapid, banal, and superficial exercise in cheap voyeurism

The soapy biopic Diana, starring Naomi Watts as the late Princess of Wales, is more like Razzie bait than Oscar bait.

... veers into melodramatic territory with its lack of relevant context and its soap-opera script.
