    Dave Calhoun Time Out London

    Grace of Monaco could have been a camp delight, but it feels too much like a stodgy, outdated television movie to work even as kitsch. show more

    Robbie Collin The Telegraph

    You can sense what Dahan’s aiming at: by introducing the spectre of Hitch early on, he lays out Grace’s existence as a kind of lived-in Hitchcock thriller...

    The film isn't just bad - it's awful - ineptly directed (Olivier Dahan), terribly written (Arash Amel) and bafflingly acted by an assortment of miscast faces. show more

    Oliver Lyttelton The Playlist

    Rarely competent, unintentionally hilarious and borderline reprehensible in both its politics and its take on gender roles. show more

    Scott Foundas Variety
