"I found it slow. The simmering romantic tension between the King and the tutor is essentially all there is to the story, and it is an unnatural dynamic because clearly the woman won't want to end up as wife #85, or whatever it is, so a romance automatically can't go anywhere."

""Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel," says the hero around minute 15, ramming us obtuse plebes with a "truth" enema the size of a WWI grenade. (Kubrick is no Wilfred Owen.) In real life, battlefield Sergeants don't kill their own men and cravenly flee (while being dullards, drunkards, & sexual deviants.) This does not accord with reality. The flic offers a fig leaf of moral cover for social cowards & boys who were not good at sports. And that's a value that has stood the test of time. "

"Poorly constructed. The Jimmy Stewart portion is so out of place that I literally checked to make sure my DVR hadn't accidentally cut off and resumed recording a completely different movie. The film is also preachy and contains lots of bad acting."

"Overlong. The tone is vaguely humorous but there are too few clever quips and off beat situations. It seems like the movie wants to be a comedy but the script won't commit to letting that happen, so we're left with a pretty bland who-dunnit."
