B E R T’s review published on Letterboxd:
By no means a great film but also by no means as bad as its reputation would have you believe. The vitriol and public shaming Mariah had after this is a clear case of schadenfreude and misogyny, she didn’t deserve it, firstly because it’s just cruel and mean but also because the movie, and Mariah’s performance, isn’t actually bad. Sure, the dialogue is cringe, and considering the plot and title it doesn’t ever really become an overly exciting or glittery film, but people just wanted to hate and hate they did, unfairly. So yeah, nothing outstanding but worth watching for some Mariah goodness, the songs are killer, it’s no wonder it went to number 1 almost 20 years later.
