FLAWED adaptation of a book that would have been hard to adapt in the right hands (Andy Warhol owned the rights before he died). Peters is far too old to be playing the part, but actually, you forgive that fact quickly. What you do not forgive is some of the poor acting from some of the supporting players (Madeline Potter is awful). Some glimpses of Merchant Ivory expertise, but Merchant Ivory are not the right people doing this movie.

I wanted to like this more because of some of the cast in it that I like. But when it came down to it, the movie had nothing to offer. I kept wondering what the point of this was.

I haven't seen this movie in years, but so many parts of it have always stuck in my head. The boyfriend's outrageous lies. Bernadette Peter's sheer awesomeness. My favorite Supremes song.

I read the book as a kid & BPeters is NOT who I saw as Eleanor. JGarcia is scrumptious tho.

I've read the book and seen the movie and without a question the book is better. But I really enjoyed seeing the art in this flick and the music was rad, specially Boy George's "Girlfriend" playing in the credits!

I used to love this one. Maybe I still do? It was all about what I would like to become in the eighties :) I think I need to buy this for my collection

Widely panned critically, but i love anything with my darling Bernadette! Watch out for the street singing "Supremes" of my favorite bits.

Great movie, 80s fashion heaven! Bernadette Peters is great a must see. A cult movie for me.

Unique film about New York's 80s Art Scene based on my favourite book by the fantastic Tama Janowitz

I just loved this movie when I was a teen. The characters and the cast are great.

Bernadette Peters is so endearingly stupid and emotional and socially awkward in this movie. she has it down.
