Mainly hilarious, but sometimes moving.
4 October 1999 | by ted puffSee all my reviews

Oh dear, oh dear, the very first Diana cash-in when she was still alive, I would really like to know if she ever saw this and what she thought. Many of the lines are almost beyond belief. Charles as played by David Threlfall is so beyond caricature, it is like watching a walking talking dummy from Madame Tussauds. The Queen: You must alter the substance of your relationship. Charles: There IS no substance to our relationship! And when Diana has either cut her wrist, or thrown herself downstairs, or run in tears from a reception, The Queen to Charles: What did you do THIS time! Although the costuming and sets are pretty good, small details like completely fictitious newspapers are irritating and I think unnecessary, it is recent history after all. Serena Scott Thomas plays Diana as a very wilful character more so than in Morton's book but affecting I think, and believable. We will never remember Diana through films like this of course, but this is an oddly moving though hilarious account of 12 tumultuous years, and although less said about the support cast especially those playing the royals the better, it is the best of the sorry crop of 'biofilms' on Diana. (Not a high recommendation.)
