Kate and William, are the Americans being unreasonable to do a film on them now?

I have seen a few "clips." I think they have an english actor doing Wills.
And the girl does look like Kate.

I think it is the sort of film that the worse it is the more laughs it will get.

We need a bit of comedy to counteract the alleged reverence. I gather Channel 5 will show it before the wedding.

It will not be a class film, like the one on The Queen or the one on Blair.
Certainly not like The Kings Speech.

It will be a hoot,,,,but would it have been any different if Kate or Wills had played themselves.? I suspect not. (Laughter is the best medicine.)

Of course it isn't unreasonable. They are paid to be famous; that is their job.

I heard a review that said it was pants. Did they do one about Charles and Diana? I think it is more catered towards American taste's as they love the romanticised idea of the royals more than we do.

Yes, Aunty, was rubbishing it yesterday; because they are not allowed to do royal jokes during the wedding run in

Be brave, Aunty, you wont lose your head.

They certainly ABU to do a rubbish film, I heard it's appalling. Theres no reason they couldnt do a good one though. However I may take a look for a laugh. Grin

Bugger - I'd just stared a thread in The Royal Family about this.

AIBU or zero at the moment?

Then again, people often don't want to talk to me.....

I think showing it in this country before the wedding will be controversial

Within 6 months all the jokers and satirists will be giving it wellie.

It will be interesting to see what size audience channel 5 get for it.

"Pants" as an insult grates on me. I prefer "Knickers"

Meditrina....Dont fret, mumsnet is swings and roundabouts.. I thought everyone would be sunbathing today.

Lets take another angle

If you had been casting english actors for the film...who would you want in the leading roles.

Jude law as Wills, maybe.

KATE....I think of the oxo lady from way back; but she must be old now.

HMQ ? there are one or two lookalikes about.

Cameron? well Jude Law could double up on him (In the nicest possible way)

Prince Philip...Not another bloody wedding. Is Leslie Philips still weith us.? He could pull it off.

having seen a trailer, i think any sane person would be unreasonable to even contemplate watching this crap :)

Hello Gabby Smile

Couldn't you be Wills?


scrappydappydoo · 16/04/2011 15:49

It'll be no worse than


LDNmummy · 16/04/2011 16:31

Funnily enough I think that is probably the third time I have said "pants" in my whole life. Knickers it is then Gabby Grin

Anyone seen the previews yet??

Apparently there is going to be an insight into Kate's family tree on the old telly box soon. Dunno if I would watch that either TBH.

We are on Captiva at the moment and there is wedding fever here - everytime I open my mouth and people realise I am English they ask about the wedding - I now act like I care as people looked at me like I had blasphemed when I said I didn't care less about it and was just happy to be getting an extra day off of work.

Most of the middle aged women here have booked off the day so they can watch it on TV.

Can;t get over how people actually care and are interested in our royal family so much over here when I couldn;t give too shits and everytime I see Kate I want to give her a ring and tell her to stop putting Kohl on the insdie of her bottom eyelid because it makes her look about 20 years older than she is!!!!!
