At first rather annoying in its heavy emphasis on reenactments, this movie ultimately proves fascinating, simply because the complicated, highly dramatic tale it tells still almost defies belief.
This movie tries so hard to be funny, yet it falls flat every time. Just another example of recycled ideas repackaged with women in an attempt to appeal to a certain audience.
It’s not bad or unwatchable but despite the amplitude of the spectacle, the end result is underwhelming.
It is encouraging that the film ends so strongly.Otherwise, it wouldn't have been a particularly memorable film
