random movie review: the other boleyn girl

saw the other boleyn girl over the weekend. i had been absurdly excited for it to come out...even more than i am about the sex and the city movie.

now, i know that the movie is never as good as the book, and i did read the book twice, so i'm probably more critical than most. but the entire thing was just ridiculous. at least 2/3 of the plot was completely missing, and what was left was so smashed together, and went by so quickly that it was like watching the movie on fast-forward. i said to my hubs at one point, "who's running this tivo remote?". dreadful.

so, for those that loved the book, save your $10.50, and re-read the's a much more satisfying experience.

(the fashion was fantastic, though. love those corsets and the sweeping silk gowns...and couldn't get enough of that stunning emerald dress natalie portman couldn't seem to stop wearing.)
