USA TODAY Full
Poor "Even the soundtrack doesn't rescue the movie from its tedious
banality. Carey's acting ability doesn't come close to the potency of her pipes.
Her range of emotion covers the gamut from simpering grin to perky smile to
pouty crocodile tears.''
Poor "For a pop singer who makes every note sound like a multiple
orgasm pumped through a Moog synthesizer, Mariah Carey is weirdly blank and
recessive in Glitter, her acting debut.''
James Berardinelli, Internet Critic
Poor "There are enough howlingly bad lines of dialogue in Glitter
to provide occasional breaks of unintentional laughter, but, even with those
interruptions, this movie is agonizing to sit through. Glitter lacks
anything resembling a sparkle, and, as a movie star, Mariah Carey is the
equivalent of a black hole.''
Roger Ebert Full
Average "One problem with "Glitter" is that it doesn't
step up and offer itself as Carey's real story, and yet it is so afraid of being
taken that way that it goes easy on the details, anyway.'' Note: The rating above is our
