The film is "the Other Boleyn Girl" and I don't know whatever or not Anne Boleyn actually had a sister, sa the novel based on the movie had suggested. But never mind, the movie is dull. Not bad, but dull. But dull is just as bad as bad itself. Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman are two sister who was caught up in the sexual doings in the court of King Henry VIII. Besides the costume and the music score,(whom I like the most) The rest of this movie is like I said, dull. Portman is the only performer that I like in this movie. Why waste your time on this movie, when you got the TV series "the Tudors" on Showtime?

This is only the second movie in my life that I have walked out on. At least up to the time of my departure, the movie consisted of two minute segments which felt totally unrelated to each other. Ugh. When someone said "Put yourself in the Queen's shoes," it was all over for me. Just a guess that that phrase was <not> used in the time of Henry VIII.

At least the manager gave me a pass for another movie.

I'll tell you how bad it was as soon as I can wake up from this dull flick.

Fans of the Philippa Gregory book will want to see the movie no matter what anyone says, and since I haven't read the book, I can't lend that audience any guidance anyway. What I can do is give you a perspective of someone going into the movie without having read the book and having only a passing familiarity with the life and times of England's King Henry VII.

I enjoyed the movie for what it was. The performances were good, but not great. Natalie Portman outshines Scarlett Johansson in nearly every scene, but since her character of Anne is the stronger/ambitious of the two, perhaps Johansson didn't have much to work with.

The scenery and depiction of Tudor England is great to look at. The visual style seems almost too perfect, as though this is how we choose to remember that time period, not how it actually was.

I think The Other Boleyn Girl is definitely worth renting, and the extras on the Blu-ray disc are plenty interesting that fans may want to buy that disc so that they can enjoy each part at their leisure.
