Everyone knows who Fergie is, right? I just saw her on TV within the past couple weeks. She's made a good name for herself since being in the Royal family. That's one of the reasons I had a hard time watching this - because I know very well what Fergie looks like. When movies are made about people who are in today's public eye it's often not the easiest thing to see beyond, "She doesn't look like that." I tried. And what's here in this movie is pathetic tabloid-type trash from Hollywood. I can't believe this is the third movie about the Royals I've seen this year... good to get them out of the way. The first two were actually moderately decent and neither came from Hollywood. This did, sadly. This probably should have been made with a flattering image of Fergie because it would have been a better movie. All we get is she was a lowlife not worthy of marrying a Royal but at the same time a human being. This is the story of how they got together and how they drifted apart. How could half the junk in this be believed anyway? That's one thing that really stinks about unauthorized biopics is they've got to make up huge chunks of dialogue to fill in the story of what "happened" behind closed doors. Give me a break. All we see is she was horrible to get along with and certain people didn't want her in the family and went to great lengths to smear her name. And who exactly were those people anyway? That was never truly explained; like a hood ornament's always on a car they were just there in the palace. And who the heck is Andrew? A portrayal of Princess Diana was in this but it's never really explained who Andrew is... I'm guessing Prince Charles' brother but I don't know. All in all this movie just stunk of tabloidism and that kind of movie will never be worth watching. D-
