Glitter deserves yet another title: "A Star Is Dull." As phony a vehicle as one could possibly concoct for a wannabe movie star, pic carries Mariah Carey into a swamp of gloppy melodrama.

Mostly dross, an unintentionally hilarious compendium of time-tested cinematic clichés that illustrates the chasm between hopeful imitation and successful duplication.

And above all, the film is lacking in joy. It never seems like it's fun to be Billie Frank.

Glitter is the week's only major Hollywood release, and it offers considerable escapist entertainment while hitting an affirmative note.
