Of course, now, I *do* pay homage to all the dead divas -- Billie, Ella, Shirley Bassey...
Edward Whatsett St. John:
Shirley Bassey is alive.
Really? God bless her. But now them others -- I'm not gonna name names... but they all stole from me. Aretha, Whitney, Little Brandy, Streisand, Diahann Carroll... Oh. and Bea Arthur. They all stole from me.

Jackie's Back should be remember for three things. 1/ Jenifer Lewis'scene stealing performances. She completely shines in this movie. 2/ The mockumentary style of the film. Think: Best in Show, A Mighty Wind. and 3/ The cameos. The cameos in this movie are of the best that i think i have seen. You've got Dolly Parton, Whoopi Goldberg, Liza Minnelli, Bette Midler, Chris Rock, Sean Hayes, Ricki Lake, Rosie O'Donnell, David Hyde Pierce, Melissa Etheridge to name a FEW!
Jackie's back must not be taken too seriously or as a piece of cinematic history. It is not Oscar worthy script, but it's damn hilarious. Sit back, relax and watch the celebrities bag the s@$! out of Jackie Washington.
