I hate to kick a girl when she is down, but after having to sit through the dreck that is Mariah Carey’s film debut in “Glitter”, I have no choice! She always said that being a movie star was her dream, well she is living her dream and she will critically pay the price for it. To use a soon- to- be- tired cliche regarding this film, “All that ‘Glitters’ is not gold.” And you can quote me on that!
