Sequins, terrible 80s fashion, and inappropriate clothing for your age are encouraged!
This Annie meets A Star Is Born fable with a Diana Ross in The Wiz vibe, tells the story of a young girl in an 80s orphanage who becomes a club dancer discovered by a record producer (Terrence Howard). When she becomes involved with the club’s DJ, romance and a musical partnership blooms… but can it survive the perils of celebrity?!?!?!?! Mariah Carey unsurprisingly shines during the musical numbers, but her big emotional scenes fall flat. Released less than two weeks after 9/11, it didn’t stand a chance at the box office. What doesn’t work as a serious drama delivers much better as an unintentional musical comedy for cult movie enthusiasts.
If you have not seen the cinematic foible that made Mariah Carey have a public breakdown, this is how you want to experience it! If you are part of TheLAMBILY and know every song on the soundtrack, wear your best Mimi gear and come sing along!!! Mariah’s passion project drove her to the point of exhaustion and led to very bizarre MTV appearances on Cribs and TRL. That’s what being the star of the film that you are also Executive Producer for the soundtrack (which is also your new album) can do to you… and still be entertaining!
