A grand, gorgeous production to be sure, but there is little substance beneath the glitz.
August 23, 2018
This is cliché heaped on cliché and hopelessly artificial.

... loses steam when the catfighting abruptly gives way to grim realpolitik.

There was no time to be bored in this breathless period piece about royal misbehavior, although I was often bewildered and confused.

This well-crafted historical drama is a treat for Tudor history fans and everyone else who appreciates a lusty tale.
August 12, 2012
Irresistibly salacious soap opera, teeming with lust, scheming, backstabbing, and some outrageously overheated plot twists.

Apart from the close ups of the lead actresses in 16th century garb, this movie is recommended only to soap opera aficionados and lovers of corsets.

A run-of-the-mill costume drama that made me think more about running home and Wikipedia-ing the characters than investing in the story before me.

A very entertaining and involving story of family and sacrifice.

The history may have been narratively scrunched, but it's all the true lives of some powerful and unfortunate people. Very lush.

Portman confere peso dramtico Ana Bolena, mas Johansson e Bana parecem seguir no piloto automtico. Alm disso, as liberdades histricas tomadas pelo roteiro so absurdas demais para poderem ser ignoradas.

The falling blade is the only element not missing the mark in this film. I wanted to call for the beheading after Act One, and spare the audience instead.

The film gets a full 'This is a work of fiction' disclaimer, even noting that any resemblance to any person living or dead is unintentional. That tells you something about how much trust to put in these historical CliffsNotes.
June 9, 2008
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.
May 28, 2008
If only there was some nobility among these royals.

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.
