Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Uninspiring from its first frame to its last, Grace of Monaco is a piece of hagiographic fluff that cobbles together tropes from other recent biopics of famous women."
‑ Jon Frosch, The Atlantic
"Often silly but never vivacious, Grace of Monaco fails as either a stately drama of the BBC provenance or an entertainingly trashy tell-all."
‑ Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine
"Not so much a turkey as a dodo, Grace of Monaco never takes flight and extinction is probably the best course for it."
‑ Kate Muir, Times [UK]
"This cack-handed snapshot of "Grace Kelly's greatest role" is destined to become another epithet-coining catastrophe, the benchmark by which badder-than-bad biopics will be judged in years to come."
‑ Mark Kermode, Observer [UK]
"It's preposterous, but taken on its merits as a live-action fairytale (as we're reminded by the script several times) it could have been a lot worse."
‑ George Byrne, Irish Independent
"Little is left to our imagination or intelligence as characters spout facts and exposition and we're treated to a parade of familiar historical figures in distracting smaller roles."
‑ Dave Calhoun, Time Out
"Grace Kelly's post-Hollywood life may not have been the fairy tale some thought it to be, but you wouldn't know it from director Olivier Dahan's cornball melodrama."
‑ Scott Foundas, Variety
"Kidman's infamous Chanel No. 5 advert had better clarity of purpose than this."
‑ Josh Slater-Williams, The Skinny
""A fictional account inspired by real events", or fiction for short, filmed like a feature length perfume commercial."
‑ Ed Whitfield, The Ooh Tray
"There isn't much chemistry between the leads, but maybe that's the point."
‑ Brian Viner, Daily Mail [UK]
"It is almost perversely impressive how Dahan misses almost every target and squanders almost every opportunity."
‑ Stephen Dalton, Hollywood Reporter
"The picture anesthetises you into boredom with its inflated sense of purpose, missing an opportunity, whether as a biopic or an artistic drama, to both honour Kelly's memory and entertain modern audiences."
‑ Jess Lomas, Quickflix
"While the tone is all wrong, this fantastical version of a momentous year in the life of Grace Kelly is still entertaining, and not just unintentionally."
‑ Rich Cline,
"If you believed even a tenth of the bad-mouthing this film has'd think [it] wasn't so much a movie as a public health hazard. As it turns out...the film has more virtues than the tsunami of shrill, acidic reviews would suggest."
‑ Jim Schembri, 3AW
"Despite having all the ingredients for an enjoyably glitzy piece of royal camp, it's formidably dull."
‑ David Edwards, Daily Mirror [UK]
