Too washed-out and worthless to even be so bad it's good.

Yet another tailor - made movie for a singer with a waning music career.

Nothing redeemable could possibly have come out of Kate Lanier's ill-fated script.

Vondie Curtis-Hall tries to invigorate the bland script by careening his cameras throughout the streets and club life of Manhattan while Carey's glorious voice is drowned out by sheets of off-key cliches.

The best parts of this dud are the ones in which she's singing. This is what she does best. This is what she should stick to. Save your money and watch her videos for free on cable music-television networks.

This fails to convince on several levels: Carey's assumed edginess; Beesley's faltering Brooklyn accent; turns from such celebs as rapper Da Brat and soul vocalist Eric Benet; the half-hearted '80s references and the haphazard retro effects.

A disaster like no other, Glitter has as its jaw-dropping highlight what I have to believe is the only scene of seduction by vibraphone ever filmed.

Mariah Carey should have taken an acting class from Marky Mark Wahlberg. The first lesson: start small.

your standard-issue "I turned around and I was famous" melodrama, set in an implausibly wholesome-looking 1983 club world, where most of the folks dress oddly, but generally are just about as nice as pie.

If nothing else, at least it killed a career. Max Beesely looks like a porno Luke Skywalker...The Shaggs had more talent.

It's so badly botched that it's entertaining ... for all the wrong reasons.

If poor Mariah Carey suffered a well-publicized breakdown prior to the release of this disposable display, imagine what she'll feel like to learn that she may have appeared in one of the worst ill-advised pointless flicks of the year.

So blatantly takes every bit of its formula to the furthermost extremes, it becomes a comedy.

Though unintentional laughs are there to be had ... Glitter never quite crosses into the so-bad-it's-good realm to make the film worthwhile.

For all its clichés, Glitter's portrait of stardom is neither more gaudy nor less revealing than other films on the subject.

A sugary, over-produced power ballad of a movie.
