OK, that was not the rehersal for the Royal Wedding. That was a music

If you really want to see crass commercialism...according to some critics you need to see a rushed-to-completion, made-for-TV movie: William and Kate: the Movie.

The movie's been sold to TV networks around the world, desperate for anything royal-wedding related in the run-up to the big day. This is surely the movie a royal film expert has been holding out for... so is there any advice for viewers?

"I've never seen anything as silly as this. "I would suggest that the royal wedding sick bag, that you can buy for three pounds, would be a good thing to have if you are going to watch this entire film," Richard Fitz-Williams, film critic.

OK, it's not "The King's Speech". I'm just hoping it won't show up on this Tv station....
