Anna Nicole is the typical Lifetime Channel tripe with subpar acting, even from actors who tend not to be half-bad, and screenplays seemingly written by interns. The gravest sin going against this movie is that you really don’t learn a whole lot about her past and instead we get most of the items we saw in the news.

THE MOVIE

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0/5

No features were included.

VIDEO – 4.0/5, AUDIO – 3.75/5

Anna Nicole arrives on DVD presented with a 16×9 enhanced video which is colorful and a standard Dolby Digital 5.1 audio track showing off clear dialogue as well as the humdrum score.


OVERALL – 1.5/5

Overall, Anna Nicole is the typical Lifetime Channel tripe with subpar acting, even from actors who tend not to be half-bad, and screenplays seemingly written by interns. The gravest sin going against this movie is that you really don’t learn a whole lot about her past and instead we get most of the items we saw in the news. The DVD released by Sony offers no bonus features while the video and audio are both serviceable.
