A lot like Tammy Faye Bakker; you just know it has good intentions, but it ends up as a smeary facsimile of what it wants to be.
It wants, as Kate says about her documentary, to be a 'seminal work on beauty and aging.' But it wears like a gauzy romantic comedy.
A comedy with lots going on and with considerable depth and complexity.
It's hard to resist this family affair.
Voice-overs and commentaries are piled on top of contrived intimate moments until, despite some easygoing performances, the movie -- the actual movie -- is a blur of undercooked motivations and halfhearted improv.
The rest of the cast spend so much time trying to avoid tripping over each other and the electric wires strewn all over the carpets that the suspension of disbelief becomes an increasingly strenuous chore.
Delivers billboard-sized messages about preconceptions of beauty and youth..., before the whole thing goes off the rails into a forced and humorless farce.
Salvaged by one meta-read that carries some weight as Shalhoub, an Arab-American of Lebanese descent, directs a film about the ills of stereotyping based on appearance.
This tiresome movie feels too flimsy for the waters beyond the film festival circuit.
It's a family affair that unfortunately looks too much like a feature-length home movie.
Droll... but too psychologically fuzzy to engender more than of-the-moment laughs, Made-Up ping-pongs from cultural satire to wan proclamations of 'sisterhood.'
Resorts to tired shtick and soap-opera-level tensions to drive its points home with all the subtlety of a brick flung through a window.
