Fans are not impressed with the trailer for the next Harry & Meghan film
Lifetime is getting set to release its latest movie, “Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace,” which “will examine the dynamics between Will and Harry, Kate and Meghan, and Harry with Will and Charles, that lead to the ultimate break from the royal ties.” (per People). But as the network revealed its first trailer, people were less than impressed, with some calling the film “exploitative,” while others complained about the actors cast as Harry and Meghan. “Well, they got the hair color right. So there’s that,” one person said about actor Jordan Dean, who is portraying the prince (per Independent).
Others on social media took offense at the “cringeworthy” dialogue, which includes faux Meghan and Harry declaring to one another, “I can’t lose you.” “I have to congratulate Lifetime,” wrote one Twitter user. “You have perfected the overall CRINGEY tone of the Sussexes’ themselves FLAWLESSLY!! The ridiculous script, over-dramatic emoting voices, awkward & fake facial expressions.” And another person tweeted, “Oh my goodness … I can’t stop laughing. I thought this was a joke, then realized it is actually a movie … which made me laugh even more … How awful is this movie just from the trailer.”
