Mariah Carey in New Movie Precious, Clearly Learned Nothing From Glitter


    Okay, this won the Grand Jury Special Prize at Sundance, so to be fair, it’s probably a step or two up from Glitter. Also, Mariah’s character looks like some kind of haggard, world-weary social worker, and everyone knows the key to making pretty people act better is to make them look worse (see Charlize Theron in Monster, Hilary Swank in Boys Don’t Cry), so her performance probably isn’t terrible. With that in mind, it’s good to see that Mariah made it “Through the Rain” (or the glitter, so to speak), and took another crack at acting.


    Precious is expected to received a limited release Nov. 6.
