The movie may be slight and a bit predictable, but these two actors are wonderful to watch.

Hoskins and Dench share a unique chemistry that pierces the story's heavy-handed construction.

Mrs Henderson's irrepressible dominance ensures that all the other characters in her orbit seem static and soulless, not unlike the girls in the theatre's nude tableaux.

There's chemistry and tension aplenty in this bittersweet character study.

One of those "prestige" pictures that you can watch with your dear old Mom ... provided your Mom won't be offended by the unclothed young ladies.

Don't expect sex, satire or "upstairs/downstairs" irony, just a good song, a flash of sequins and the possibility of a wartime romance--oh, the joys of nostalgia!

Una comedia dramática con iguales dosis de picardía y emotividad, sostenida en dos buenas actuaciones de Judi Dench y Bob Hoskins.

Mainly an excuse for the entertainment industry to toot its own horn, again.

A charming piece that entertains without getting heavy, yet dares to make poignant statements when the moment is right.

When exactly did one of cinema's most accomplished actresses turn into one of its most boring?

Naked ladies may be the enticement, but the main attraction of Mrs. Henderson Presents is Dench and Hoskins squabbling like the old married couple that they aren't.

Dench deserves better, and unfortunately it will probably be a long time before she gets another starring role in a movie custom-made for an actress her age.

Dench can say more with just her eyes than many young actresses of today can say with whole pages of dialogue.

Frears' skimpy plot is only a false front for the nudity, which includes a peek at Hoskins' naughty bits. Dame Judi, to her everlasting credit, keeps her clothes on.

... perfectly pleasant and exceedingly predictable ...

Even in its finest hour, still a sad little movie about the guilty thrill of ogling nudity
