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

    How could a major studio -- in this case 20th Century Fox -- put its name on a production with a dim-bulb, tone-deaf script that piles howler on howler? Why couldn't someone save poor Ms. Carey from herself?
