    As Mariah proved in "Precious", she can do better. And she's not all that bad in this one. It's the story that's so silly.

  • All that glitters ain't an Oscar.

    Here's a prime example of a sub-genre of show-biz epics like A Star Is Born, the pop-diva-vanity-project. Since there is nothing like this from Celine, I guess we should assume Rene's cooler head prevailed. Diana , of course, raised the bar with Mahogany, so Mariah had big pumps to fill. Mariah was quick to claim credit for the "concept", but I doubt it would stand up in court. We've been down this road before. We start with the humble origins bit, as we join Mariah and her mom, a troubled and irresponsible saloon singer. But Mom has pipes, so we know that, with a gene pool like that, litle Mariah's got the goods. Mom accidently burns down the house, so Mariah becomes a ward of the state and, literally within twenty seconds of entering her new home, meets the two fellow inmates who will later become her girl group. Flash-forward to the three young women looking for a foothold in the entertainment industry. Though Mariah is loyal to her friends, she's soon singled out for solo success. Funny how that always happens in these movies. (Well, Barbra couldn't be an Oreo forever, now could she?) Ultra-cool DJ and aspiring record producer Dice zeroes in on the music-icon-to-be, but his shady dealings doom the relationship. ("Nicky Arnstein! Nicky Arnstein!") Mariah gets to live her dream of performing at Madison Square Garden, but must do so with the realization that it has cost her the important relationships in her life. A reflective Mariah seeks out her mom after the concert, showing her core values are still intact, so we know that superstardom is hers by divine right. Don't you love it? If you take NONE of this seriously, you should have a good time.
