  1. Glitter is the week's only major Hollywood release, and it offers considerable escapist entertainment while hitting an affirmative note.
  2. Glitter is, if nothing else, comfortable with what it is, namely earnestly made, wholehearted schlock.
  3. Helplessly clichéd, predictable and unaware of its own lameness, it could easily become a camp classic on the order of "Grease 2" and "Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band."
  4. It's doubtful that even a real actress could have triumphed over the rusty tinsel of Glitter, a hapless, retro-'80s ''Star Is Born.''
  5. A butt-numbing exercise in tedium, sporadically redeemed by moments of unintentional hilarity.
  6. A heart-wrenching debacle from the starting gun.

    Whoever thought this movie was that bad, or thinks Mariah Carey is that bad of an actress, just doesn't like Mariah Carey, period.

    Obviously, this is a bad movie. But it's not THAT bad. The media had a lot of fun making this out to be worse than it truly is. Obviously, this is a bad movie. But it's not THAT bad. The media had a lot of fun making this out to be worse than it truly is. That's because as a culture, we enjoy putting people up on pedestals and then tearing them down, (like we're doing with Britney); that's exactly what we're doing to Mariah, though she struggles incessantly against it. This movie is like any made-for-tv piece of garbage. But it's better than A Perfect Storm. So it deserves at least SOMETHING. Expand

    For someone to suggest such an extreme such as death instead of watching a movie are seriously out of their minds. No movie is too bad, For someone to suggest such an extreme such as death instead of watching a movie are seriously out of their minds. No movie is too bad, including this poorly written but fairly enjoyable piece, to such an extent that one must make the decision of whether they'd rather die or watch cinema. Expand

    This movie could have been popular, had it been released in the 20's when them dang ole' movin' pictures first came out. This movie could have been popular, had it been released in the 20's when them dang ole' movin' pictures first came out. People would have LOVED it, but alas, it was released when people knew what movies were supposed to look like, so they knew that this crap had nothing to do with good movies. Expand
