This review is from: Mommie Dearest  [DVD] (DVD)
Surely one of the greatest 'camp' classics. Ever. Full of terrific oneliners - 'Tina, brrrrrrrrriing me the axe!' - and acting that can only be described as over-the-top of over-the-top.
Faye Dunaway (although she later blamed the film for her career decline) is outstanding as the mentally unbalanced, semi-alcoholic, 'clean freek' Crawford but recieves great support from a cast of cameo's.
Although perhaps a tad-too long and, of course, the story can hardly be called fact (even as a scripted bio its probably myth) but as cinema, it makes for one helluva movie! So, get the popcorn and a note-pad & pen (to write down the oneliners, for use in everyday life.....'no more wire coat hangers, EVER!!') and enjoy one of the most mad movies ever to grace the silver screen.
