However things went down during the fire of 1666, I doubt it went down anything like what's shown in this crapfest's melodramatic baloney. It's just really horrid, and I advise you to ignore it at all costs. Watching all the dirty people in their dirty clothes was tedious enough, but the unbelievable and ridiculous dialogue just doesn't fit, both for the time period or for a major crisis like being surrounded by a great fire. Some of the speeches nearly made me barf because they were nothing but unrealistic, treacle-laden sentiment. I mean, who, while being sought for treason in the middle of a huge inferno, would take the time for a chat about love with his/her children under the age of ten? And to believe that uneducated commoners would even dream of speaking on the same level as the king is laughable, as if such a thing would be allowed. There's way too much to point out that's inaccurate, but it's not worth the keystrokes. Don't waste your time, unless you have a penchant for overdramatized bullsh@t.
