A great queerophile vision, made before she became Mimi Bobeck's mom and Ron Jeremy's BFF. You'll end up admiring this lachrymose Minnesotan more than you'd imagine. And you'll hate on the other televangelist clowns (especially Falwell) more than ever. Narrated by RuPaul.
Surprised by this one. The campiness wasn't overdone, just the right dose. When I was a child during the '80s, all I knew about Tammy Faye was she cried a lot and had big, mascara-covered eyelashes, but this documentary provided me with a far more interesting woman than I'd expected. It's an all-around entertaining and informative film.
I love Tammy Faye Bakker so SO much after watching this documentary. I used to think she was kooky, but now I think she is kooky but also an angel. If you're interested in televangelists (the good and the evil,)as well as the life of Tammy Faye Bakker (really, really interesting!) this is an absolutely brilliant documentary.
