Watts masters Diana’s look — the way she carried her head and used those wide, coyly expressive eyes — but is only passable at...

Time Out New York

By Joshua Rothkopf
Watts’s work is extraordinary, sometimes keying off the same illicit register as "Mulholland Drive"; she risks being goofy, awkward and...

Village Voice

By Amy Nicholson
Diana is a Lifetime movie in sensible pumps, at once too silly to be taken seriously, yet so self-serious it rarely allows us to giggle.

San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
It's a gallant battle against flawed material, and Hirschbiegel fights it to a draw.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Richard Roeper
It’s a fractured fairy tale, penned in clunky strokes.

In truth, the only hazardous material to be found in Diana - the title role assumed bravely, if mistakenly, by Naomi Watts - is the...

The result is a film that grows worse with each passing minute, as the vibrant and complex Diana is reduced down to a daft, dumbstruck love...

This wrongheaded biopic that bears her name does nothing to burnish her legacy. In fact, the tedious movie lacks any insight into the...

Sixteen years after her death, Princess Diana is still capable of generating interest, which is probably the only reason why this dull,...

If you're a romantic, it's a must go. This lady led with her heart which takes an abundance of courage. Having had women of this caliber in my life it brought back many fond memories. Little in...

Was interesting as we had not appreciated the affair she had and how much it meant to her - was an interesting angl e that she may have used Dodi to make the Lover jealous. Interesting film....


By roynyc
This is a very loving and ultra-romantic film tribute to an extremely remarkable woman. Naomi Watts creates a breath-taking portrayal of the late Princess and this film should be on everyone's...

Omygosh!!! This movie is beyond bad...it is absolutely awful!!! Can't believe an actress of Naomi Watts stature & talent agreed to be in it. The script is pedestrian at best! Beyond corny! Diana...

love story

By qnmum1
nice to know that Diana found someone who loved her in her lifetime. She deserved so much more. She had a heart of gold for people. I loved the line about the meeting in the garden. There is hope for...

Diana film inaccurate, but entertaining...

By Coryraisa
This film was entertaining, but very, very INACCURATE, especially in the depiction of Diana. Too much Hasnat in there; they just had a fling that lasted a few months, not this three-year torrid soap...

A Different Perspective

By BTDawg
While some of the press has panned the movie, possibly in a move to minimize Princess Diana, the movie was more than what the media had ever explained. I didn't know very much about Princess Diana's...

I expected so much more than just a love story between Diana and the Doctor which I believe was exaggerated. I would have love to see about her relationship with the Queen, her husband and the...

Fight for Love!

I knew nothing about Diana, having been a teenager while she was princess. This film is incredible! It picked me up and absolutely swept me away! I want to go back again tonight and tomorrow night...

I wanted it to be good.

By qdaw99
I really went into this wanting it to be good but ultimately I felt like it didn't do Diana any sort of justice. Before there was social media, etc. Diana was a very complex and multi-dimensional...
