"Insufferably idiotic," reviewer Richard Fitzwilliams expressed on this morning's Today show, while Valentine Low of The Times said the soap opera is "best shown silent on a blank screen."
Starring British actress Camilla Luddington as Middleton and New Zealand-born Nico Evers-Swindell as Prince William, the movie premieres Monday, April 18, and will be available on DVD in the UK starting April 25 -- hitting shelves just in time for the big day.
But don't expect Brits to buy into the mushy portrayal of Prince William and Kate Middleton's eight-year courtship. It's "unashamedly aimed at satisfying an American fantasy version of the British royal family," Michael Holden of Reuters describes. "Having more in common with a cheesy Disney animated story than any accurate portrayal of the couple's relationship."
The upcoming nupitals are expected to set a new TV broadcast record of two billion viewers. Could this movie reach an all-time low? Judge for yourself. Watch the trailer below:
