Glitter A showbiz romantic drama set in the 1980s about a young singer (Mariah Carey, below) who is discovered and makes it to the top. Also starring Max Beesley, Da Brat and Tia Texada. David Hunter The Hollywood Reporter 'With not a lot of illuminating dialogue and a smiley approach to acting, Carey does not fare well in her movie debut, while the songs are not exactly keepers for general audiences, and the performances are nothing special. Indeed, because of the shoddy execution, truncated storytelling, unconvincing acting and awkwardness of cliches, Glitter is another of what have become far too common lately: unintentional laugh-fests.' Kevin Thomas The Los Angeles Times 'Glitter, which marks a dynamic feature debut for pop star Mariah Carey, is far from pure gold, but it is not all dross either. It is a handsome production, unself-consciously evocative of its era in settings and costumes. It is resourcefully shot, and locales are kept to a minimum without the film seeming chintzy.' Robert Koehler Variety 'Glitter deserves another title: 'A Star Is Dull'. As phoney a vehicle as one could possibly concoct for a wannabe movie star, [it] carries Mariah Carey into a swamp of gloppy melodrama. Postponed release dates and Carey's chronicled emotional breakdown are actually the least of the project's problems - the greatest being the project itself.'
