Tawdry, vulgar and inane movie that perfectly suits its subject.
26 December 1999 | by (Basingstoke, England) – See all my reviews

This must be the nadir of Kevin Spacey's career. Who ever thought he'd be a good person to play TV evangelist, philanderer and chipmunk look-a-like, Jim Bakker?! The poor man does his best with cotton wool stuffed in his cheeks (hey! It worked for Brando!) and a toupee that could stop traffic. Bernadette Peters does an equally brave job of portraying bushbaby bimbo Tammy Faye Bakker, a woman who is truly without any merit or value. This is a very bad movie, but is never less than entertaining in that slow motion carcrash kind of way... God bless you Jessica Hahn for exposing these morons for what they are! It is you that is the instrument of the Lord!
