Safe, sugarcoated biopic: Medocrity the nth degree
3 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Grace Kelly has always been one of my favorite movie stars, but this biopic did her no justice. There was no real conflict or drama, just the basic thumbnail sketch of her life up to her Monaco marriage. It's a lot like something you would find in an encyclopedia entry on Grace Kelly, but just acted out. You're much better off reading one of the various biographies out on the market if one really wants more detail of the late princess's life.

Cheryl Ladd didn't help matters, she does her best Grace Kelly impersonation, but it just doesn't add up. Of course, I'm one of those people that find it distracting when an actor is playing a famous or historical person, but doesn't look a thing like the famous person he/she is playing. Cheryl Ladd just reminds me of Tippi Hedren a lot (which is perverse, when you remember that Hedren was the actress that Hitchcock replaced Kelly with). Ladd plays her as a happy-go-lucky gal that is always at the right place at the right time (ensuring her acting career, princess-hood etc.), all with a trademark affected upper class accent. The script doesn't allow for much else really. But at least it's maybe a notch less annoying than Jennifer Love Hewitt's "The Audrey Hepburn Story". Maybe.
