5.0 out of 5 stars A Movie Lost In The Midst of Bad P.R. and Tragedy February 6, 2007
I assure you that this movie is not the worst thing ever created on film like people tried to make it out to be. If Mariah didn't have a meltdown and 9/11 didn't happen then I honestly believe that this movie would have been a moderate success. Not a blockbuster or Oscar contender but enjoyable. The script in this movie sucked. Mariah had her few moments when she showed she could act but I admit there are quite more than a few flaws to this movie. I grew up in the 80's so I could identify where Glitter was trying to take us. The younger generation (preteens-teens) might not understand the 80's as well as thirty-somethings would. After all the flaws of Glitter I do accept it for what it is, a story of a young talented lady trying to make it in the music biz and getting pulled into several different directions at the same time. And yes the the soundtrack is so cool and Mariah still sings her heart out in this one. I mean come on how could anyone not identify with the song "Reflections"? Please give this movie a chance and buy the soundtrack too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly for some, "Glitter" absolutely Glitters! January 18, 2002
The movie was never released to cinemas in my country and even being the huge Mariah Carey fan that I am, after reading all the horrible reviews that it got - I was beginning to think that acting shouldn't be Mariah's forte. .. WRONG!!! Just because the media had a field day about it doesn't mean the movie was that bad. In fact, the opposite is correct, the movie was wonderful and Carey is anything but bad in it. The idea of having the 80s theme and the soundtrack to go along with it turned out to be fantastic. The songs, the club scenes, the clothes - they all contribute to having the movie look just as if it was done in the 80s. True, the plot wasn't based on a Stephen King story. But it is so much better than half of the summer movies I've seen in the past couple of years. Mariah is a singer and she excels in playing one (Billie Frank). The rest of the crew did a great job as well. Da Brat & Tia Texada (Playing Billie's childhood friends) mostly helped the funny part of the film, Max Beesley (as Billie's love interest) - the romantic/dramatic part and even gorgeous Eric Benet with a cameo appearance did a fairly nice job. All in all, the movie is short, fun and even has a surprising ending! The music that goes along with it is an extremely big part of it and I feel bad for the reporters who dislike Carey's music and for that chose to dismiss the whole movie. I suggest you give "Glitter" a try and ignore the joke that was made out of it, because it is honestly much better. One last advice, Don't back down Mariah, you have what it takes!

Format:VHS Tape
Despite it's bad rap given by the critics audiencesit's low box-office potential, and most notably, it's release date (9/11/01), "Glitter" brings life and vivid color to an otherwise dull and contrived plot, helped by pop queen Mariah Carey.
As it is, the story is based on a rags-to-riches story about an aspiring diva in the '80s (Carey), which is marred by obstacles and contrived subplots. There's enough bad acting and scripting to give this movie 1 star, but Carey plays out her character with confidence and simple, infectious charm.
Fans of Mariah will be well-pleased and impartial, nondemanding people who rent this on VHS/DVD will be surprised on how simple the plot is, helped by Mariah's beauty and her maturing acting ability. Give "Glitter" a look, it's not as bad as the others say it is.

3.0 out of 5 stars Leave Mariah alone December 27, 2001
By tom
I saw Glitter on the opening night and I will admit it was not a packed house (Okay, there were eight people). Yet that did not stop me from enjoying the film. I have never been a big Mariah fan, yet somehow I thought this film might work because even if I don't always like Mariah's music, she does put in a lot of effort into her work , and it shows in Glitter. The film was unfairly trashed by critics who just figured Mariah was another pop star trying to break into movies. Well, she is, but Mariah does have charisma, and if anything good comes out of this film, directors will notice that Mariah has the ability to be a good comedic actress. She's very appealing as Billie, a young singer who rises to stardom in the 80s, and who tries to cope with both her professional and personal lives. Mariah may not always score in the dramatic scenes, but she has a charming quality that carries the picture nonetheless, particularly in her scenes with Max Beesly, who plays her boyfriend. Glitter is not perfect; it's episodic, the music is okay and the climactic scenes
(involving a dramatic concert finale) are not believeable (you'll know what I mean when you see it), yet it is still enjoyable. The film works best when it is poking fun at the 80s and at the
superficial nature of the music business (since Mariah is the star and helped oversee the project, this heightens the comedy and thus, makes it realistic), it's only too bad the film didn't concentrate more on the satire element rather than the romance.
Glitter may not sparkle, but it does have its' bright spots.
