Quotes

[Lorna is learning how to take care of her mother]
Michael Sidney 'Sid' Luft: If she oversleeps and misses a dose, she could go into withdrawls or pass out or have a seizure.
Young Lorna Luft: What do I do? Do I call the operator?
Michael Sidney 'Sid' Luft: Honey, listen to me. *Never, ever* call the operator. You can call the doctor or better yet, call me in LA, *but you do not call the operator when your mother is Judy Garland*.

Judy Judy Judy!!!! (Part 2 Review)
26 February 2001 | by See all my reviews

Judy Davis gets the Emmy for this one. Beyond belief performance. Not since Ben Kingsley in "Gandhi" have I seen anyone inhabit a real-life based character the way Davis does here. A career high note. Hate to say it..but this movie really deserved a theatrical release. It's almost too big for TV. Hats off to ABC either way. Great direction by Ackerman. The attention payed to the nuances is surreal. Blink..and you'll swear you're watching the real deal. Solid support from Victor Garber and Alison Pill as a young Lorna Luft. And Tammy Blanchard just bought herself a career. Wave bye-bye to "The Guiding Light", Tammy. Your boat has just sailed.

There has to be some sort of cosmic yin-yang Zen supernatural otherworldly force at work here that placed one "Judy" in the ruby slippers of another to this effect. There is no other handy explanation. A star is born (Blanchard) and another one goes into supernova (Davis). This is great moviemaking. Now, get this sucker to video where I can watch it without commercial interruptions.
