The British press isn’t in love with the new film about the infamous Princess Diana.  The film premiered in London on Thursday, and stars Naomi Watts as Diana, Princess of Wales in the last years of her life. 

The production company said they planned to make an “insightful and compassionate study of Diana’s later years.”

The British press has laughable called it “atrocious and intrusive,” ouch. 

The Mirror’s David Edwards referred to the film as “a cheap and cheerless effort that looks like a Channel 5 mid-week matinee.”  He continued saying, “The Queen of Hearst has been recast as a sad-sack singleton that even Bridget Jones would cross the street to avoid.”  He gave the film a single star review.

The Guardian’s Peter Bradshaw writes, “I hesitate to use the term ‘car crash drama,’…”But the awful truth is that, 16 years after that terrible day in 1997, she has died another awful death.”

Edwards said of Watts, “Wesley Snipes in a blonde wig would be more convincing.”
