I still don't think all that much of Jim, but I came away with a real love of Tammy Faye. There is nothing fake about her except that eye makeup. I wish that I could have known her.
I had always assumed the "facts" about the fall of Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker were true and simple. This film at least raises questions about the consistantly unchristian treatment of the Bakker's by their tele-evangelist cohorts.
For me, any film that further demonstrates that Jerry Falwell will burn in hell is sufficently entertaining to justify the purchase, but this film has much more. Seeing inside Tammy Faye, one discovers that she is a good woman with a good heart, but little if any self esteem. She was way ahead of her time (ahead of where most of her former cohorts are now) on social issues. Her fragile self-esteem was trampled upon again and again. (The clip of Tammy Faye on the PTL Club television set stoned on Ativan and trying to wade in the water, which has been painted on canvas, is precious.) I ALMOST feel bad laughing at it all, but Tammy Faye has herself done what she suggests others do with the lemons dealt her in life: .. yeah, make lemonade.. <eyes roll>
The film's irony is poignant throughout... RuPaul, who wears less makeup than Tammy Faye, provides an even narration of the film. A look at the Bakker's son shows exactly what one would not expect. Jim Bakker's "victim's" comments about the depravation of her innocence are spliced together with tasteless, raunchy scenes from her Playboy video.
Tammy Faye should be admired-- probably not for her fashion and makeup prowess-- but because, in spite of getting knocked down again and again and again, she always gets back up and remains true to herself.
If you are not convinced to buy this film already, then do so for the answer to the question of the ages: What do roaches, Tammy Faye, and Cher have in common?
