Review by anonymous (posted on 10-Feb-2007)
The film itself is actually slow and dull. But as always, the only thing that makes it worth watching is to see Marilyn. Her acting in this film is superb and startlingly real and shows talent beyond the mere character or script. Her emotion is overwhelming, her comic timing perfect, her beauty unequaled. Her manner and movement more naturally glamorous than any other woman in history. To a real professional who knows acting and who knows the business it it obvious she had very little to work with on this film, but as the true professional she was (contrary to the lies told about her in the press) she did what she always had done and made the very most of a weak character and a B movie script. People who criticize Marilyn have very little understanding of real acting, or of people. I give this film one star, but Marilyn's performance, I give 4 stars.
Do you know something we don't?
