Metascore®Overwhelming dislikebased on a weighted average of allcritic review scores.

It's doubtful that even a real actress could have triumphed over the rusty tinsel of Glitter, a hapless, retro-'80s ''Star Is Born.''
And above all, the film is lacking in joy. It never seems like it's fun to be Billie Frank.
