Hysterical!
18 October 2002 | by (Kingston, Ontario) – See all my reviews

"Hell on Heels: The Battle Of Mary Kay" is hilarious! I was anticipating this tv movie because I'm a huge fan of Parker Posey and i was truly impressed. Shirly MacLaine plays Mary Kay, the woman behind the makeup company, we first meet her at a convention for all the sellers of her makeup. AT this convention, Mary Kay is basically worshiped, like she is Jesus himself. We then meet Jinger Heath (Parker Posey) who's husband owns another rival makeup company. For him to get more sales, he asks Jinger to come in and help sell his makeup, much like Mary Kay.

The story goes on from there, where the two rivals compete to get a bigger following. The performances are great. MacLaine can never do wrong, and she fits the part of Mary Kay to a tee. Parker Posey plays a bitch brillantly, the two of them together is a match made in Hollywood heaven. All in all, a great film! ***** (out of 5)
