My sister Megan's husband is out of town on business this week...which means it was time for another ladies night. My sister Andrea and sister-in-law Lesli joined me at Meg's last night for a little Dr. Pepper and yes, "Glitter." Megan was determined to watch this movie. She says she was just really curious about the movie that single-handedly ended Mariah's career. The funny thing is, this movie is so bad that NO Blockbuster's carry it. After she called the 4th store, the employee said, "yeah, if you really want to get that movie, you're going to have to get it from Blockbuster Online" so she did!
Here are just a few issues this movie had:
1. It is set in the 80's. Any movie that is set in the 80's needs to be making fun of it, (ie. Wedding Singer) because I can't take any actress seriously who is wearing leg warmers, a side ponytail and a checkered cap with a flipped up brim.
2.Mariah has approximately 2 lines in the whole movie. It became apparent that they gave her as little lines as possible so you wouldn't be able to tell what a crappy actress she is...yeah, that didn't really work out.
3.Terrible cinematography/editing. Every once in a while, there were crazy camera angles that didn't make sense, a series of scenes that were in fast-forward (literally) and some that were in slow motion. Oh, and let's not forget the poofs of sparkly glitter that were occasionally used as transitions between scenes.
I could go on, but just know that we had a great time making fun of pretty much every aspect of this movie. Next on the list? That Ben Affleck/J-Lo movie "Gigli"...should be a treat!
