Dallas Observer
It contains nary a dull moment.

L.A. Weekly
It's a testimony to the integrity and poignancy of Tammy Faye herself that she comes off as a cool, even complex, woman.
75
Boston Globe
A lively and affectionate cross between an infomercial and a genuflection.
75
Demonstrates, if nothing else, that there's a genuine person -- chastened by mistakes and more compassionate, perhaps, for all she's suffered -- beneath the war paint and the stardust.
75
USA Today
A largely irresistible puff piece.

Whatever the complicated truth about PTL, Tammy Faye's homespun charisma is undeniable; if only the Lord would give her the strength to say, "Get thee behind me, false eyelashes!"

Time
Maybe this documentary is a bit too enthralled by her, but she emerges from it a game girl, a gay activist and a curiously sympathetic figure.
70
Los Angeles Times
(To be) thoroughly enjoyed as a privileged look at one of the loopiest of late 20th century lives.
63
San Francisco Examiner
A runny intimate portrait that doesn't trust Tammy Faye Messner and her story to enthrall you. So they've all but spelled it out: k-i-t-s-c-h.
50
Austin Chronicle
By letting her babble on and become a somewhat risible figure, the filmmakers display a somewhat mean-spirited attitude, despite all their fuss about finally appreciating this put-upon survivor.
