Yeah yeah, stop your yammerin'. So she doesn't look all that much like Marilyn Monroe. Get over it. She does a relatively good job in an almost impossible role. Unfortunately the film as a whole, her performance notwithstanding, is just your typical middle-of-the-road biopic, so even if she were to blow us away with her portrayal (sadly she does well, but not that well) it would not amount to much of anything. But I should stop my yammerin' as well, since I am merely repeating ideas I breach in my review of My Week With Marilyn. In other words, you should stop reading this and head over to The Cinematheque where said review is now up and running.
