[after seeing Sylk's lip synched performance which featured Billie's voice]
Man, Sylk. That was amazing.
Really? Did you like it?
I had no idea you could blow like that.

Oh the pain.... Mariah believes she is Streisand in A Star is Born
This movie was so bad I could not even finish watching it. The acting is
atrocious, the script full of cliches, and Mariah's wardrobe is used either
as an attempt to call attention away from her bad acting, or to audition for
a layout in a men's magazine. As the movie has been on a movie channel, I
did end up watching the entire thing - although I had to do it in bits and
pieces to retain my sanity.
There are many scenes that are totally pointless and last all of thirty
seconds. One of the best, ie worst, is when she and Dice walk into the suite
of the record company, the business men say you've got a contract, and
champagne glasses are raised - end scene. That is literally the scene and
actually probably doesn't even last twenty seconds. There is no extra
dialogue or any other action - walk in, "you got the contract", "I'll drink
to that", scenes over. It is the type of writing I did when I was in junior
This is a bad, bad film. The more I think about it, there are many
similarities between this film and "A Star is Born". Geez, Mariah probably
thought she would be the next Barbara Streisand. I can't wait to see
Mariah's interpretation of "Yentl".
