Movie Description:
Billie Frank is a shy, young multiracial girl who is sent away by her alcoholic mother at a very early age. At an orphanage, she befriends Louise and Roxanne. Flash forward to 1983. Billie and her friends are spotted by a record producer, Timothy Walker, who wants them to sing backup for his latest pop-music discovery. But when super DJ Julian Dice hears Billie's incredible voice, he makes a shady deal with Timothy to get her out of that dead-end situation. Soon, Billie and Dice are making hits inside the studio, and falling in love outside of it. Eventually, the pressure of her newfound celebrity puts too heavy a strain on Billie, forcing her to decide what it is she really wants from Dice, and what she wants for herself.

Here for it in 2020

Glitter must surely be at cult classic status any day now. The bad rep it got at the time doesn't stand the test of time. Re-watch and you'll see what I mean. Mariah is good in this and so is the soundtrack.

I'm offsetting the bad rating

So this is certainly no Oscar worthy film, or even a great film. It's decent. Though I've been a long-time IMDb user, I was prompted to write this as my first review because I felt like the score is unfair. Glitter certainly doesn't deserve a 2.2 rating as I've seen worse; some of it's "connection" films, for example. Truthfully, I'd give it a 5 or 6 out of 10-- my 8 stars above is only in hopes that it will raise the current rating. Mariah Carey gives a consistent performance, especially considering her personal struggles at the time. I'm no super fan either but just thought I'd contribute some positivity here and respectfully disagree with the numerous disparaging comments. If anything, I would blame the writing rather than the acting, but again, I can think of other films that are much more overtly awkward due to a poor script. I typically don't list credentials but for context, I have a PhD (and all former degrees) in Theatre so I can be pretty critical and think myself capable of identifying a horrible movie and this isn't it, in my opinion. It's on par with many other romance movies and dramas about singing careers. If you have realistic expectations, it's a okay film.

Singing And Acting Don't Mix.

What do you get when you take a over hyped singer and put her in a movie? You get Glitter. This is an example of why most singer should stay singers. Acting is not something that Mariah Carey should have not let an agent talk her into. This was suppose to be a romance movie, but if I had been the guy that she was after, I would have stepped in front of a speeding truck just to get out of this travesty of a film. The only good thing about this move are the credits at the end. That way you know that you reache the end of such a bad movie.
