Mrs. Henderson Presents (*1/2)

Mrs. Henderson may have been presenting naked women on stage, but this movie mostly presented crap. Slight, unfunny, and well-reviewed only because it's a British flick that stars Judi Dench, Mrs. Henderson Presents is highbrow "entertainment" that, at all times, manages to bore the life out of viewers. Bob Hoskins and Judi Dench may be cinema treasures, but who cares when the movie they're in is so pointless? About an hour in, World War II happens and the movie desperately seeks some kind of gravitas that it never really achieves. The best thing about Mrs. Henderson is the opening credits. It's all downhill from there.
