Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Why in the name of ermine boleros would anyone make such a dull, coy and, worst of all, pretty film about Anne Boleyn?"
‑ Dave Calhoun, Time Out
"[A] vulgarized portrayal of the Tudor court."
‑ Philip Marchand, Toronto Star
"Irresistibly salacious soap opera, teeming with lust, scheming, backstabbing, and some outrageously overheated plot twists."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"A run-of-the-mill costume drama that made me think more about running home and Wikipedia-ing the characters than investing in the story before me."
‑ Heather Huntington, ReelzChannel.com
"Portman confere peso dramático à Ana Bolena, mas Johansson e Bana parecem seguir no piloto automático. Além disso, as liberdades históricas tomadas pelo roteiro são absurdas demais para poderem ser ignoradas."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"I think the performances are really good."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Overscored and lacking even the faintest realism of period, the movie still bears undeniable trash charms, if nothing near the deep satisfactions of such medieval nonsense as Beckett."
‑ Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
"Apart from the close ups of the lead actresses in 16th century garb, this movie is recommended only to soap opera aficionados and lovers of corsets."
‑ Jamie Gillies, Apollo Guide
"A very entertaining and involving story of family and sacrifice."
‑ Austin Kennedy, Sin Magazine
"The falling blade is the only element not missing the mark in this film. I wanted to call for the beheading after Act One, and spare the audience instead."
‑ Matthew Sorrento, Film Threat
"[An] oversimplified, overheated mediocre melodrama."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"After covering much of its ground at a stylish canter, The Other Boleyn Girl finishes at a plod."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"Dreary"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"The history may have been narratively scrunched, but it's all the true lives of some powerful and unfortunate people. Very lush."
‑ Karina Montgomery, Cinerina
"The film gets a full 'This is a work of fiction' disclaimer, even noting that any resemblance to any person living or dead is unintentional. That tells you something about how much trust to put in these historical CliffsNotes."
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
