Movie Review

Marie Antoinette

This was one of the worst movies I have EVER seen. They put 80s music to a period piece and didn't really tell a story. It could have been done so much better. I know people are trying to make movies that are new and different, but every time a song came on my stomach turned and I really had a hard time taking the movie seriously. I understand that the 80s was a time of excess and laziness and so was Marie's story, but come on! None of the scenes flowed together well, no one even tried to use a foreign accent unless they already had one and Molly Shannon! Seriously! Seeing her in this movie just made me roll my eyes. So out of character. Using foreign actors would have been at least a good start to fixing this disaster. They also didn't tell the entire story. I was expecting a dramatic ending, but NO, nothing, it just ends. The costumes were the one saving grace of the film. They were beautiful.

Jake and I saw that movie in the theatre with some friends. It was soooo lame!! I did like watching all the food, shoes, and clothes though. :)

I couldn't agree with you more! I did not like that movie one bit although I do think those costumes are to die for! That was the best part.

Sorry it stunk so bad. I hate it when all I can say is "that was 2 hours of my life wasted...never to be recovered". Thanks for saving the rest of us!
