    Entertaining but over-rated.

    I hoped this movie would be a knock out because of Pfeiffer and Kathy Bates but I found it a dreadful bore. The visuals were great and the costumes fabulous but the story while a simple one was stupid and a real snooze. I had hoped this would be a super chick flick and just found it to be a turkey instead. Kathy Bates was the best in the film I feel she will get a supporting nomination for this one.

    Really a superb flic. Pfeiffer is faboulous in the part, Great visuals - a really complex and interesting story about life - as true today as when Collete wrote the story. Pfeiffer is certainly Oscar worthy.
