Critic Reviews of "Mommie Dearest"Dave Kehr Chicago ReaderOctober 30, 2007
It's rich, stimulating thought in spite of itself.Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago ReaderOctober 30, 2007
Director Frank Perry, who collaborated with three others (including producer Frank Yablans) on the script, gives it all a certain crazed conviction.Variety Staff VarietyOctober 30, 2007
Dunaway does not chew scenery. Dunaway starts neatly at each corner of the set in every scene and swallows it whole, costars and all.Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 23, 2004
I can't imagine who would want to subject themselves to this movie.Janet Maslin New York TimesAugust 30, 2004
There is nothing to string the episodes together into a coherent drama, and no insight into Miss Crawford herself.Jason Bailey FlavorwireOctober 15, 2016
The character is rendered such a grotesque, its moments don't accumulate to an arc or even a readable profile. They just pile up, like cars in a traffic accident, and all we can do is gawk.Tracy Moore Common Sense MediaOctober 13, 2015
Campy skewering of Hollywood star is both silly and sad.Dennis Schwartz Ozus' World Movie ReviewsFebruary 20, 2013
Trashy soap opera drama on the private life of screen queen Joan Crawford.Josh Larsen LarsenOnFilmMay 13, 2008
Director Frank Perry simply sits back and lets Dunaway rip. He was either supremely untalented or he purposefully intended to sabotage her.Stefan Birgir Stefansson sbs.isFebruary 28, 2008
