This drag queen camp farce was an unfunny drag.

If Far From Heaven had had any sense of humor, it might have looked a little like this.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
April 9, 2004
An extended skit on The Carol Burnett Show with fleeting full frontal nudity.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
March 16, 2004
Soapy and trashy, and more than a little bit ludicrous. But there's quite a bit of subtext if you need it.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

...Busch drags his campy send-up of Hollywood melodramas to the screen, and honey does it drag.

Die Mommie Die! seems more like an amateur revue, perfectly all right for what it is, but not meant to be seen beyond an audience of friends and family.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

You quickly start to realize that there's not much of a movie here.

This is such a smug, self-satisfied film that it will leave a bad taste in your mouth, whether you're a fan of old melodramas or not.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
December 5, 2003

A loving homage to every movie Joan Crawford ever barreled her shoulder pads through.

Cheesy, corny and cheap. In other words, it's everything writer-star Charles Busch wanted his spoof of B-movies to be.
November 28, 2003
Aside from meeting a memorable character -- an aging pop diva with self-dramatizing flair -- this comedy thrives on arch melodrama and movie smarts.
November 28, 2003
How can you not like a movie where characters spout ridiculous dialogue such as, 'You can't discard me like one of your false eyelashes!' and believe every word they're hissing?
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Picture Far From Heaven done as a farce with a drag queen in the Julianne Moore role. Or don't picture it -- Die is still hotly hilarious.

The best thing about "Die, Mommie Die" is the title.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
November 3, 2003
Director Mark Rucker has the right intentions, but unfortunately, not enough skill in terms of comic timing and film pacing to make this confection really soar into parody heaven.
November 3, 2003
A one-note farce that struggles just to remain on key.
Full Review | Original Score: C

Bad camp...despite the stylistic similarity, about as far from 'Far from Heaven' as you can get.
Full Review | Original Score: D+

Charles Busch channels Joan Crawford, Bette Davis, Lana Turner and Susan Hayward in the lovingly crafted "Die Mommie! Die!" - this you HAVE to see!
