I heard you get a check every time they play one of your old songs on the radio. And with just one of them checks? WOOH. I could get me a new refrigerator. Y'know, one of them frost free.

When the film premiered on Lifetime, it did not include Curry's overdub at the end about the new version of "Look at Me." This line has surfaced in recent TV airings and on the DVD release. See more »
I'm a huge Tim Curry fan, so I initially watched this for that reason, but I have to say, this is one of the funniest movies I'd seen in a while. "Jackie" is a fallen diva, descended from George Washington (according to her), about to make a comeback. I loved all the cameos, you can tell just by the people willing to make cameos in this that they thought it was a hilarious concept. The end is a bit too sappy, but I can forgive that. LOved "The Milkman".. my favorite scene is Jackie saying, "I never stabbed him with no afro pick... he FELL on that afro pick" and then the indentations on Milkman's forehead.... just beautiful! Great movie... I highly recommend it!
