Loved it!  The running gags on Eric Benet and Mariah's over-singing were hilarious, and the "reunion" scene with her and her mother was riffed to perfection.  Bring on more Mary Jo!

A terrific rifftrax, one of the best I've heard in a while. Mary Joe was great, and her laugh is really contagious, her laughing alone kept me laughing five minutes after the "BOOTY BOOTY BOOTY" line.

The roving piece of duct tape that was always in a different place on Mariah really confused me. What the hell was that? It looked like she didn't have it when she was singing in Madison Square Garden [which is somewhere in Madison], and I thought maybe it was symbolic somehow since Dice was dead, but then I saw that she did have it right below her right shoulder blade.

Seriously, does anyone have any idea what that was supposed to be? I was thinking that it might have something to do with the titular [hehe] Glitter somehow, but I really haven't figured out anything beyond that. Did the movie think it was some 1983 fashion thing?

And why did the movie have to be set in 1983 anyway?

Considering that Glitter was supposed to be a semi-autobiographical movie for Mariah, the time frame setting makes absolutely no sense to me at all as well. Why not have it set in the 90's?
Being a genocidal maniac is not one of my turn ons.

Is it weird to hear the Safety Dance in my head watching Game of Thrones?

I was lost on the 1983 setting myself.  If it wasn't for the caption and a handful of lines in the script this could have been set in 2001 (when the film was made).  It would be a 2001 where no one dressed like it was 2001, but that's okay since they weren't dressed like it was 1983 either.

My best guess is that someone had a script about the music industry in 1983 and someone decided to turn it into a Mariah Carey vehicle.  From there it was just a hasty shooting schedule, patch-ups to the script during shooting so that Mariah never had to actually do anything, and a pushed out the door release to leave in the 1983 setting while not actually doing anything with it.

   The movie sucked but the riffs were awesome. I hope they bring Mary Jo back to the studio. Maybe we'll get the whole crew eventually!!!

  So, this movie.....wow. Like everyone else here, I'm not sure why this movie had to be based in 1983. I'm also not sure why Mariah Carey thought she was important enough to have her lifestory somewhat brought to the big screen. Not like she's Ella Fitzgerald or anything. And I'm not sure why it's called Glitter. AND I'm not sure about the silver tape. What's with that?

   I would have thrown myself in front of a truck before I'd see this wretched movie on its own. As always, Rifftrax saved the day. For the record, we're not slipping a Rifftrax sticker into this piece of crap because we know it hasn't been rented out since the videostore got it as a new release. It would just be a waste.

It was a descent rifftrax. It started strong, had a long lull in the middle, then finished strong.

Mike and Mary Jo worked well together. Plus, having a female riffer allows for making fun of the behaviors of the opposite sex (both of them).

And what WAS the deal with that silver smudge???
