Midler's character is empty, boring, selfish.

December 14, 2006
The most notable aspect of this trashy (but unenjoyable) biopic of Jacquleine Susann, Valley of the Doll's best-selling author, is its running time (93 minutes); Bette Midler and Nathan Lane give two of their worst and broadest performances.

Every joke and every scene collapses and blows away before it's finished.

gives its heroine all the rough edges of a throw pillow... Susann couldn't write sentiment convincingly and neither can Rudnick.

If you're looking for laughs, give Valley of the Dolls another read instead.

Lane's sweetness, his naughty wiliness and his dapper charm all make his performance wonderful to watch.
January 1, 2000
Here is a movie that needed great trash, great sex and great gossip, and at all the crucial moments Susann is talking to a tree.

Isn't She Great is anything but.

Working in campy harmony, director Bergman and writer Paul Rudnick milk the jokes and the pathos out of every scene, brought to life by the excellent supporting ensemble.

Isn't She Great is an oxymoron.
Full Review | Original Score: F

January 1, 2000
[Midler] must contend with Andrew Bergman's uncharacteristically slack direction and a pallid script by Paul Rudnick that has a faxed-in feel to it.
January 1, 2000
Leaves an unintentional unpleasant aftertaste.
January 1, 2000
Cheesy and predictable.
