William & Kate Lifetime Movie Review

OnSugar Review: Why the William & Kate Movie Was So Bad It Was Great

The following post was written by disneycouture, who posted it on the OnSugar blog Life, Love & Lace.

OK. Seriously, my DVR was all lined up, Blackberry put aside for me to curl up on my leather couch with a bowl of popcorn to watch Lifetime's William & Kate movie premiere. Ten minutes into the movie, I realized that the tissues I thought I'd need were going to be tears of laughter than of romance.

The actors in the movie were pretty similar in appearances to the real-life people they were portraying, though Prince Harry came across as angry, evil and just plain weird. We got to see the famous sheer-dress, though the movie's version was boring compared to the original, and Kate's wardrobe was the result of a bad wardrobe budget. Never attempt to re-create couture and real labels on a budget. Some of the movie was so cheesy and so unrealistic. I sincerely doubt that Prince William would ever sing to Kate to woo her, and I highly doubt that the conversation between William and his father, Prince Charles, was accurate. Their conversation of how Princess Diana chose the public life seemed a little sad, and I highly doubt there is any concrete evidence of dialogue that the writers chose to use.

The entire movie was was so slow and dragged out that by the time that the finale/engagement was shown, I was more dumbfounded by the bad computer-imaging of a safari background than by William proposing to Kate. Did anybody else laugh at how bad the acting was between Kate and her mother? Or that the "St. Andrews" college looked more community than Ivy League (folding chairs and tables? Paper decorations?). This movie was cast, directed, and launched way too fast. I'd rather see this in two years to see a wedding scene. Ugh. I was so angry that I wasted my time watching such a horrible movie, but at the same time, I was fascinated and easily amused at how bad it was. The only upside of the entire two hours was the actor playing William, Nico Evers-Swindell. He was nice to watch, and seriously much better looking than the real Prince of Wales.

The girl who played kate didnt even sound british. I stopped watching after they finally got 2gether and switched over 2 20/20 where they were talking about how they got 2gether. which was more interesting then the movie. I agree w/u that maybe in 2yrs or so they should make another movie that includes the wedding

I agree 100% with disneycouture. The movie helped time pass a little faster but it was really boring, fake and overall disappointing. I never really watch lifetime channel movies and after this one, I may never attempt to do so again.
