Quotes

Mary Kay: We all need inspiration, to do amazing things. To fly higher than we ever dreamed of, to discover we have wings. Let me show you the bumblebee, you never would think it could fly. With a body too big, and wings too small, it still finds its way to the sky. A butterfly can flutter by, its wings are small but sound. But the bumblebee, aerodynamically, should never leave the ground. So the scientists say, most every day, Its wings can't bear its weight. But the bumblebee, paradoxically, continues ...

Enjoyable diversion
21 March 2005 | by howie73See all my reviews

This is based on a true story but you wouldn't think it from watching this well made but TV movie with a top-notch cast which includes Shirley Maclaine, Parker Posey and Shannen Doherty. The tone is satirical rather than matter-of-fact. Some scenes are very exaggerated and ultra camp, especially the beginning which might dissuade many from watching the rest. It feels like a musical most of the time and you half expect the cast members to jump into song. There are many snappy lines from Maclaine as the eponymous cosmetics queen heroine, while Posey is very good as her arch-rival, she doesn't get enough screen time to compete with Maclaine, which is a shame. Doherty gives a totally hyperactive performance which is totally at odds with her depiction in the media. In some ways t doesn't feel like a TV movie. The sets are extravagant at times and you can tell more money was thrown at this movie than most. An enjoyable diversion.
