If Far From Heaven had had any sense of humor, it might have looked a little like this.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
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.

It plugs ahead on the stamina and sheer nerve of its author-star.

It's a tawdry, silly and self-satisfied film, but in the best ways.

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.

Aside from meeting a memorable character -- an aging pop diva with self-dramatizing flair -- this comedy thrives on arch melodrama and movie smarts.

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?

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.

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

[Busch] is a performer who is more diva than most of the ovary-packing portion of the population and twice the dame

The most notable aspect of "Die, Mommie, Die" is the great female impersonation performance by Charles Busch as the ardent Angela.

like "Far From Heaven" as imagined by John Waters

October 31, 2003
In the midst of all the double-entendres and genre sendups, Busch disappears so completely into Angela's persona that viewers may quickly forget it's a man inside that red wig and those extravagant gowns.

The reason to watch Die Mommie Die! isn't for its story, but the zing in its actors' eyes.

A wickedly funny parody.

Nobody wears a frock like Charles Busch and, as it happens, nobody writes like him either. Which makes for a strangely irresistible combination.
