Know Your Enemy

"Wesley Snipes in a blonde wig would be more convincing."

The Mirror's David Edwards on Naomi Watts' performance in the lead role of the new biopic about Diana, Princess of Wales.

The film has been almost universally panned, and Watts in particular - the Guardian's Peter Bradshaw saying "she looks like she's in a two-hour Spitting Image sketch, scripted by Jeffrey Archer". The Daily Express, though, claimed it's a "must see". Strange - it's unlike them to get things wrong and be completely out of touch. Presumably they're just delighted at the opportunity to spin yet more Diana stories out of it.
