Anna and the King

Genre: Drama, Romance; Starring: Jodie Foster, Chow Yun-Fat; Director: Andy Tennant; Runtime (in minutes): 150; MPAA Rating: PG-13; Distributor: 20th Century Fox Film Corporation

A fourth film version of the Anna/King of Siam story wasn’t an intrinsically bad idea. But this one, Anna and the King, foolishly digresses from the usual romantic culture clash, adding some bloody border-war violence, an absurdly action-packed Anna-saves-the-kingdom climax, and a dopey end-credits love theme that must have Rodgers and Hammerstein spinning in their graves. But it’s still an opulent eyeful — even after being formatted to fit your TV. C
