Consensus: Naomi Watts tries hard in the title role, but Diana buries her efforts under a shoddy script and clumsy direction.

It's ... a pity that her life is reduced to such a forgettable movie.

Superficial and lacking in direction. The acting was totally unconvincing.

Naomi Watts does a good job as Diana, even in the way she walks and looks, but there is not much that she can do to save a soapy script full of horrible corny… More

Diana, not making a peep upon its release nor since, is one of those movies that simply exists where neither its content nor the way it was put together, where… More
