Los Angeles Times
Glitter is the week's only major Hollywood release, and it offers considerable escapist entertainment while hitting an affirmative note.

L.A. Weekly
Glitter is, if nothing else, comfortable with what it is, namely earnestly made, wholehearted schlock.

New York Daily News
This is the worst performance by a pop star in a dramatic role since Madonna suited up for "Shanghai Surprise."
25
It doesn't help that Glitter is such a derivative mishmash of cinematic and real-life situations that it's nearly impossible to count all the ways.
25
It's doubtful that even a real actress could have triumphed over the rusty tinsel of Glitter, a hapless, retro-'80s ''Star Is Born.''
20
A butt-numbing exercise in tedium, sporadically redeemed by moments of unintentional hilarity.
12
Baltimore Sun
Glitter does no one any favors.
10
Variety
Glitter deserves yet another title: "A Star Is Dull." As phony a vehicle as one could possibly concoct for a wannabe movie star, pic carries Mariah Carey into a swamp of gloppy melodrama.
10
Mostly dross, an unintentionally hilarious compendium of time-tested cinematic clichés that illustrates the chasm between hopeful imitation and successful duplication.

New Times (L.A.)
Worst movie of the year.
