Movie Reviews

Jane Plaine | Chicago, IL | 03/13/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"It seems that most die-hard Marilyn Monroe fans dislike this movie because it doesn't tell her true story, and it bends some facts and dates to fit the story. While that's true, you have to remember that this is based on Joyce Carol Oates novel, "Blonde", which is a fictional account of Marilyn Monroe's life. The novel and the movie are both intended as works of fiction and shouldn't be read as a biography of her life and work. If that's what you're looking for, then pick up a biography (you have plenty to choose from). Otherwise, this is a decent, entertaining movie. Personally, I prefer the novel, but I'm a pretty big fan of Joyce Carol Oates."

"Poppy Montgomery did a wonderful job acting in this film. I really enjoyed being a diehard Marilyn fan myself, but...there are a few flaws in the film. Some of the sequences and dates in the film don't exactly happen as it really did. As with any other hollywood film the real story was switched around to fit the director's prespective. I thought it was good but not good enough. If you want an *idea* of what Marilyn was like this would be good. But for the accurate and unaltered story I suggest picking up a book about her."

"This was a truly amazing movie about Marilyn Monroe. I had seen the movie on Lifetime Movie Network and loved it. I looked everywhere for the movie and was thrilled when I found it on Amazon. Poppy Montgomery does an outstanding portrayal of Marilyn Monroe. The movie was a bit long but well worth it. I don't know how anyone could watch this movie and not fall in love with Marilyn Monroe. Outstanding!"
