Hilariously inept showcase.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
November 5, 2001
The film seems to suffer from a kind of death wish, bent on offering itself up for audience ridicule.
October 12, 2001
It may all go south when Mariah unleashes a torrent of gooey ballads and exposes her infinitesimal dramatic range, but even then it's hard to feel vindictive.

October 9, 2001
Just when you think it could not get more ridiculous, Hall, Lanier, and Miss Mariah go that extra mile.
Full Review | Original Score: 0/4
October 8, 2001
The film is neither fun nor particularly heart-wrenching.
October 5, 2001
A vehicle that tarnishes as you watch it, leaving this troubled chart-topper lost in a sea of drunken, maudlin cliches.

Is this for real?

October 1, 2001
Total escapism without a shred of believability.

The barebones of the plot are just tedious.

Every time you think this story has gone way overboard on ludicrous plot developments, it will toss you another one.

September 27, 2001
It's just an intentional hoot, sabotaged by clunky direction, a screenplay so awful it feels as though there are no vowels, and Carey's inability to recite a line of it.
September 26, 2001
We don't have much space to tell you about Glitter, so we'll be blunt. This star vehicle for singer Mariah Carey is primarily a showcase for her breasts.

A derivative mishmash of cinematic and real-life situations.

September 26, 2001
Carey has a wonderful gift; it's just not in acting.
September 26, 2001
Carey, so vibrant and upbeat in music videos during the 1990s, simply does not register on the big screen.

Carey acts the way Jennifer Lopez sings -- meekly and badly.
September 26, 2001
While it seems cruel to kick a person when she's down, it would be inaccurate to call Carey's performance anything other than groan-inducing.
September 26, 2001
have risen above screenwriter Kate Lanier's mundane show-biz saga.
September 26, 2001
Though the story repeats every cliche of the form, it manages to get things wrong in new and fascinating ways.
