Storyline

Billie Frank is a shy, young multiracial girl who is sent away by her alcoholic mother at a very early age. At an orphanage, she befriends Louise and Roxanne. Flash forward to 1983. Billie and her friends are spotted by a record producer, Timothy Walker, who wants them to sing backup for his latest pop-music discovery. But when super DJ Julian Dice hears Billie's incredible voice, he makes a shady deal with Timothy to get her out of that dead-end situation. Soon, Billie and Dice are making hits inside the studio, and falling in love outside of it. Eventually, the pressure of her newfound celebrity puts too heavy a strain on Billie, forcing her to decide what it is she really wants from Dice, and what she wants for herself.

"Glitter" : All These Years Later
27 March 2006 | by (Phx. Arizona ("Arizona Smells Funny"!- Homer Simpson)) – See all my reviews

First,let me start by confessing something I freely admit. I am 100% a fan of Mariah Carey....as a singer. It's almost like what the girls in the '60s probably had when they looked at the Beatles. Whenever she's on TV or I listen to her music,I just naturally feel good.

However,when it comes to "Glitter",yes I,like most,was really let down. I wont even go into the plot since it's a moot point at this time. 5 years or 100 will not change or make this film any better. Even though I'm a fan,I'm not so one sided in thought that I'd just accept it all. This film was a mistake from the beginning. Even the soundtrack is not "all that" as they say. Although I do like the song "Never Too Far" & "Loverboy" . (That's why I gave 2 stars).

I heard about this film going into production back in 1998. Now,when a film takes nearly 3 years to make,that's the very first warning sign that it's not going to work. Not to mention some publicized production problems I read about. Mariah herself stated recently on Oprah that she just wasn't good at saying "no" during the dizzying pace of her career in the 90's. I'm sure this was just something she contractually said "yes" to and moved on.

Then,as happens with all "super-stars" (I hate that term) the low came after 11 years of riding high. There wasn't anything wrong with her music,she'd just been working too hard,too long and that's what led to this embarrassing moment and the one in 2002 on Total Request Live aka TRL. She has of course rebounded from all this,her song,"We Belong Together" spent 14 weeks at #1 last summer and the CD "Emancipation of Mimi" has sold millions. She can now do what "she" wants at her own pace.

In closing,today is March 27th. Happy birthday Mariah,as far as I'm concerned you at least deserve one review that isn't filled with venom. Keep on singing. (END)
