It seems that most die-hard Marilyn Monroe fans dislike this movie because it doesn't tell her true story, and it bends some facts and dates to fit the story. While that's true, you have to remember that this is based on Joyce Carol Oates novel, "Blonde", which is a fictional account of Marilyn Monroe's life. The novel and the movie are both intended as works of fiction and shouldn't be read as a biography of her life and work. If that's what you're looking for, then pick up a biography (you have plenty to choose from). Otherwise, this is a decent, entertaining movie. Personally, I prefer the novel, but I'm a pretty big fan of Joyce Carol Oates.

I'll be honest, I bought this movie because I heard Jensen Ackles was in it. It was worth it. The movie itself ran hot and cold. Remember that you are watching a fictional work based on real life events. The acting was good but I felt many scenes were limited to network television content standards. This movie would have been better on HBO without limitations.

Okay. For starters this isn't a documentary or a biography style film about Marilyn. Some of the characters were real people and some of the situations real, but for the most part it is a work of fiction. For instance they changed the name of her real life agent Johnny Hyde. They also never mention Joe DiMaggio or Arthur Miller by name at all. With all that being said, honestly, I thought it was a great story. Poppy Montgomery didn't do too bad of a job playing Marilyn. They got a lot of Marilyn's emotional hang ups right; her constant search for a father figure within her love life, her intense insecurity, and the fact that she never really felt the persona of Marilyn Monroe suited her. It just wasn't her.

Poppy Montgomery did a wonderful job acting in this film. I really enjoyed being a diehard Marilyn fan myself, but...there are a few flaws in the film. Some of the sequences and dates in the film don't exactly happen as it really did. As with any other hollywood film the real story was switched around to fit the director's prespective. I thought it was good but not good enough. If you want an *idea* of what Marilyn was like this would be good. But for the accurate and unaltered story I suggest picking up a book about her.

This was a truly amazing movie about Marilyn Monroe. I had seen the movie on Lifetime Movie Network and loved it. I looked everywhere for the movie and was thrilled when I found it on Amazon. Poppy Montgomery does an outstanding portrayal of Marilyn Monroe. The movie was a bit long but well worth it. I don't know how anyone could watch this movie and not fall in love with Marilyn Monroe. Outstanding!

I have to be honest....I only bought this because Jensen Ackles was in it. But I found myself so wrapped up in the story that I couldn't stop watching, evening when Jensen was no where to be seen. Great movie!

The acting was very good. However, it is obviously Marilyn Monroe and all the names and facts are changed and it does her a disservice. I didn't like it at all for that reason. The woman is gone so if you are going to do a telepic about her at least make it factual.

let's face it..there are alot of "marilyn" films out there and most are just awful,with the exception that featured actress Hicks about ten[!] years ago.this is somewhat interesting and poppy montgomery certanly captured a sensitive portrait of monroe.there are times it's "HER"!but none o these films as well as this ever probe ino the horror of filming "the misfits",which certainly would have made the script more interesting.and the "hidden"storyline losely ivolving the kennedy brothers is silly. the gloss of her life is there and this actress is worth watcing but it's still the old tired tale just as the others.it's worth the price however seeing this actress compliment the sensitive insight into this woman's life.
