"Fall From Grace" typical Hollywood hype
19 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Fall From Grace" only aired on NBC twice way back in 1990-91 sometime. Then the film was shelved, and as far as I know it hasn't re-aired anyplace else.

Kevin Spacey (playing Jim Bakker) and Bernadette Peters (playing the now-former Tammy Faye Bakker; who since remarried and became Tammy Faye Messner) both turned in stellar performances. Bernadette's singing left a lot to be desired, versus the real Tammy's fantastic singing voice.

However, this movie was typical "Hollywood hype" if you ask me. It really was not an accurate portrayal of either the Bakkers nor the Christian empire that was known as Heritage USA and the PTL Club.

It seemed that most of the movie was shot on a Hollywood sound stage. It would have helped to at least shoot some of the scenes on location there in South Carolina on the former Heritage USA property.
