Hated It!
15 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I LOVE ANYTHING "WILDE" but this is the worst representation of the famed Victorian literary master that I have ever seen! All it is a bunch of famous(?) people quoting the ascerbic and witty Oscar. It really tells nothing about the man. And the choice of people to appear is all over the place. What does Rosie Perez have to do with anything!? She did manage to lose that usually overdone "NuYoRican" accent long enough to give the great man his due; maybe director Bill Hughes managed to convince her that the viewer would not be able to appreciate Wilde's barbed quotations if they were unable to understand the speaker? In the immortal words of the "Men On" duo of television's "In Living Color", the equally witty Blaine Edwards and Antoine Merriweather, "HATED IT!"
