Dench still has plenty of charisma and a wicked sense of comic timing, but you can't win an Oscar by just being funny, so the third act gives us serious speechifying and forced pathos, smothering what could have been a pleasant little vaudeville romp.

The film cries for Oscar from start to finish. Setting the gold standard for the new Weinstein Company, Mrs. Henderson Presents is pure 24 karat.

Ultimately the film arrives at obligatory moral lessons and a bit of patriotic uplift.

The movie may be slight and a bit predictable, but these two actors are wonderful to watch.

Mrs Henderson's irrepressible dominance ensures that all the other characters in her orbit seem static and soulless, not unlike the girls in the theatre's nude tableaux.

One of those "prestige" pictures that you can watch with your dear old Mom ... provided your Mom won't be offended by the unclothed young ladies.

Don't expect sex, satire or "upstairs/downstairs" irony, just a good song, a flash of sequins and the possibility of a wartime romance--oh, the joys of nostalgia!

Una comedia dramática con iguales dosis de picardía y emotividad, sostenida en dos buenas actuaciones de Judi Dench y Bob Hoskins.

When exactly did one of cinema's most accomplished actresses turn into one of its most boring?

Naked ladies may be the enticement, but the main attraction of Mrs. Henderson Presents is Dench and Hoskins squabbling like the old married couple that they aren't.

Dench deserves better, and unfortunately it will probably be a long time before she gets another starring role in a movie custom-made for an actress her age.

Dench can say more with just her eyes than many young actresses of today can say with whole pages of dialogue.
