  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.''

    A butt-numbing exercise in tedium, sporadically redeemed by moments of unintentional hilarity.
  6. 10
    Just when you think it could not get more ridiculous, Hall, Lanier, and Miss Mariah go that extra mile.
