Rotten on Rotten Tomatoes (185 movies items)

"55% Consensus: Director Frank Perry's campy melodrama certainly doesn't lack for conviction and neither does Faye Dunaway's performance in the title role, unfortunately it lacks enough narrative discipline to offer much more than a guilty pleasure. "

25 From 81: My Favorite Films Of 1981 (25 movies items)

"How do you get back at your parents for punishing you with a wire hanger? Easy. Try writing a book. And yeah, I'm fully aware that Mommie Dearest is generally considered as a pretty bad film, especially amoung those movie fans who have bestowed upon themselves the title of "connoisseur". But, it's one of those few flicks on my lists that qualifies as an honest-to-goodness guilty pleasure. And to be honest, it seems to fit in quite snuggly in the midst of other camp-teetering films like Escape"

Filmsite's Greatest Funniest Movie Moments/Scenes (224 movies items)

"The unintentionally funny scenes in which monstrous movie-star Joan Crawford (Faye Dunaway) attacks her adopted daughter Christina (Mara Sobel) - she chops off her blonde hair with scissors, enters her daughter's closet and abusively screams -- "NO MORE WIRE HANGERS!!" when she sees a dress hanging there on a cheap wire hanger, and then throws a can of powdered cleanser at her while they are both on their knees scrubbing the already-clean bathroom tile floor"
