THE OTHER BOLEYN GIRL aims to be a sexy lust driven costume drama in the mold of The Tudors. But its lackluster script fails to ignite any sparks and the various love affairs which occur remain dispassionate.
Nevertheless, the two female leads make the most of their thinly written characters. Scarlett Johansson is the chaste sincere Mary Boleyn while Natalie Portman is her notorious sister, the scheming sexpot Anne Boleyn who sweeps kings and commoners off their feet.
If there is anything to be commended, it's these two talented actresses dueling one another.
