Lifetime Channel's William & Kate The Movie was greeted with derisive hoots from critics and viewers in the U.K. when it was screened Sunday night on Channel 5. Stephen Bates, who reviewed the $4.5-million film for Britain's Guardian newspaper, said that it was "so bad it's awful, toe-curlingly, teeth-furringly, pillow-bitingly ghastly." The London Daily Mail sneered that it was "truly terrible a shoddily cast, poorly executed, badly edited and surprisingly boring account." The Mail today (Monday) quoted from some of the public's reaction on Twitter. Among the comments "Have just seen 1 second of Will and Kate the movie & can confirm it is the most excruciating & awful thing that mankind has ever created." Another "Watching some of this terrible Will & Kate movie. I don't know where to begin on how bad this is! Laughable and unbelievable." However, some viewers took a so-bad-it's-good attitude toward the telefilm. One described it as "brilliantly awful." Another said it was "just awful but surprisingly watchable."
The actor says he isn't "holding out for more money or doing anything like that".
The drama will be making its return to the streaming service in the near future.
