There is no other way to concieve of this film getting made other than being the by-product of extraterrestrials intercepting tv signals of DYNASTY, MELROSE PLACE and the like and recreating them as a realistic depiction of the way Earthlings behave. This gets my vote as the most unintentionally fall-on-your-ass hilarious movie ever made; you simply can't write comedy this good! The dialogue must have turned John Waters chartreuse with envy, and the performance by Steven Boyd is akin to what if one of the THUNDERBIRDS marionettes had been cast in WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLFE?. His body language is quite like some poor puppet being randomly jerked around while the puppeteer tries to shake off LSD-conjured spiders. And the incredibly strange dialogue from a knife-wielding strip joint owner:(attempting to be intimidating, with a crazy gleam in his eye and tossing his switchblade between both of his hands) "Pretty? Pretty?" No one in the history of civilization has ever talked like any of the characters in this film. If you are fortunate enough to have this unjustly out-of-print film at your local video store, not only should you rent it immediately, but you should invite over all of your friends and let them stare at this mess in slack-jawed amazement. A solid 10 on the laughs scale! And you will pee your pants at Tony Bennet's narration/ performance!!! RENT IT RIGHT NOW, FOR GOD'S SAKE!

I just saw this film and I had to go out to buy it. Why? it&#39;s so bad its good!<br/><br/>This film was supposed to show all the nasty side of how an Oscar nomination goes to the head of its nominee and what he would do to win -- and in a way it does. <br/><br/>But the acting is so over the top...you can&#39;t help but laugh. The hair styles are big, the performances are big..come on, it&#39;s just one of those fun little 60&#39;s &#39;soap opera&#39; films that you&#39;d never watch for serious sake, but mindless fun with you and your friends. (Remember the soap opera &#39;General Hospital&#39; in the early, early 60&#39;s with the obviously over the top acting, silly drama situations, the real organ playing, etc.? Well this is even funnier!) <br/><br/>It grabs ya, but you cannot help but laugh, laugh laugh, it&#39;s SO over the top. If anyone wants to know what makes a &quot;campy&quot; film, don&#39;t rent &quot;Mommie Dearest&quot;, rent this one. There isn&#39;t any way you could hate this film, you&#39;d be laughing too hard. I&#39;d watch it on rainy days, or if I&#39;m feeling blue, or I just want to get together with a bunch of friends and just point out just how over the top this is. <br/><br/>This is a 10+ on the campy scale, a 5 regular. Go out and rent it, just to have a ball. It&#39;s fab-u-lous!

I also love this movie. I first saw it about 12-15 years ago on a short-lived series on TNT called &quot;Bad movies we love&quot; or something like that. For many years I traditionally watched it right before the Oscar broadcast. The &quot;Airplane&quot; of bad movies, the hilarious dialogue just keeps coming. I taped it from a pay TV source many years ago, but would also buy a pristine VHS or DVD copy. Jill St. John&#39;s finest hour. Struggling young actor,impatient for stardom, steps on everyone he meets on his way to an Oscar nomination. Terrible overacting by nearly everyone involved, and ridiculous,riotous dialogue make this a classic guilty pleasure. Made at a time when Hollywood was not yet consciously making &quot;bad&quot; movies. Great fun.
