Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Diana might have been flawed and scheming and love-starved, but this film doesn't help explain that. Nor does it illuminate the common touch and humanitarian side that endeared her to a global audience."
‑ Suzanne S. Brown, Denver Post
"It's ... a pity that her life is reduced to such a forgettable movie."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"Sets the proceedings within a misty cloud of conjecture."
‑ Jonathan Kiefer, SF Weekly
"It may not be anything all that special, but it's harmless, well-made and entertaining on its own terms."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Hirschbeigel says she's a miracle, the screenplay leans toward monster. I wish the film was interesting enough to make a case for both possibilities."
‑ Brian Orndorf, Blu-ray.com
"Not a lot different from whatever movie Katherine Heigl has made lately."
‑ Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
"This visually polished, Oscar-baiting docudrama chronicles her final two years, and even in death she's a subject of invasive speculation."
‑ Drew Hunt, Chicago Reader
"Yes, Diana is the poor little rich girl, but the opulent settings, private jets, yachts, and chauffeured cars prove peculiar and distracting affectations."
‑ Louis Black, Austin Chronicle
"If I didn't know John Hughes was dead I would have sworn he had written this film."
‑ Michael A. Smith, MediaMikes
"Anyone who cares about this stuff already knows it."
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
"The film can't find the woman beneath the façade, despite Watts' best efforts. Maybe she didn't exist. Or maybe there's a better movie to be made."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"If you are going to make a film about the late Princess of Wales, you are obviously going to choose the guy who directed "Downfall," about the last days of Hitler, and the actress who played opposite King Kong."
‑ Anthony Lane, New Yorker
"This affair hardly plays as being more than the pre-Dodi Fayed footnote it still is today, much less deserving of this grand epic romance treatment given by the filmmakers."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"Are the micro-biopics that don't even bother to provide overviews of their famed subjects' entire lives, but instead lean on the spectacle of celebrity impersonation, the new camp?"
‑ Eric Henderson, Slant Magazine
"Despite its aristocratic pedigree...rather tacky."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
