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.

Heroically bad.

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.

Glitter lacks sparkle.
November 24, 2001
A sugary, over-produced power ballad of a movie.
November 12, 2001
Hilariously inept showcase.
October 5, 2001
A vehicle that tarnishes as you watch it, leaving this troubled chart-topper lost in a sea of drunken, maudlin cliches.
October 1, 2001
Is this for real?
October 1, 2001
Total escapism without a shred of believability.

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.
September 26, 2001
A derivative mishmash of cinematic and real-life situations.
September 26, 2001
Carey, so vibrant and upbeat in music videos during the 1990s, simply does not register on the big screen.
September 26, 2001
Carey acts the way Jennifer Lopez sings -- meekly and badly.
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.
September 26, 2001
Ms. Carey sure can sing but she sure can't act.
September 26, 2001
Above all, the film is lacking in joy. It never seems like it's fun to be Billie Frank.
September 25, 2001
Infinitely mockable.
September 24, 2001
Carey is weirdly blank and recessive.
