By all accounts, Miss Crawford had serious failings as a mother, but the film pounds so unrelentingly on her raging cruelty to her children -- and her equally offensive public sweetness -- that she emerges as a laughable caricature. Full Review

It's rich, stimulating thought in spite of itself. Full Review

With its hysterical sessions of psychological (and occasionally physical) torment, the movie is so wretchedly written and flatly constructed that it's easy to regard as a misguided horror flick. Full Review

Director Frank Perry, who collaborated with three others (including producer Frank Yablans) on the script, gives it all a certain crazed conviction. Full Review

...Dunaway's Crawford isn't out-of-control acting, but a fiercely thought-through depiction of an out-of-control person...

Lacking psychological intelligence or, for that matter, awareness of Hollywood sociology, Mommie Dearest is just a collection of screechy scenes further distanced by convictionless direction. Full Review

Product Description:

Based on the book by her adopted daughter Christina, MOMMIE DEAREST is the now-legendary tale of Hollywood superstar Joan Crawford (Faye Dunaway) and the lengths that she went to in order to maintain her public image. After several screen successes, Crawford's plan to stay on top in Tinseltown includes adopting two children, Christina and Christopher, whom she plans on spoiling with love and gifts. As her career flags and her lack of success in her relationships with men chip away at her constitution, Crawford's treatment of her children becomes more and more brutal. Though this domestic horror tale is so over-the-top it that it is often celebrated as high camp, Dunaway's performance remains nothing short of astounding.

Plot Synopsis:

The sensationalistic film biography of one of the silver screen's most infamous female stars, Joan Crawford. Based on a tell-all biography by Ms. Crawford's adopted daughter, this movie presents a subjective vision of life behind the closed doors of the Crawford household -- a view into the sordid personal life of a narcissistic and domineering mother who sadistically beat her "precious" little children.
