Where's the plot summary?[edit]

The lengthy plot summary section of this article doesn't seem to describe the plot at all. I haven't seen the film, but could somebody who has seen it please write a summary? --Ddawn23 08:35, 18 November 2006 (UTC)

Dan-o-rama Remixed video[edit]

Should there be a mention of, at least be a link to, the Dan-o-rama megamix version, or would that be irrelevant? 70.140.227.136 04:37, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

Family Guy Reference?[edit]

Is the bit in Family Guy when Lois goes apeshit over the towels really a reference? My sister's got the DVDs at the moment, so I can't check the commentary. It just seems a bit vague (if she'd started beating Peter with a wire hanger, then it'd be different :)) Paul E Nolan 11:41, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Mommie Dearest DVD cover.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Mommie Dearest DVD cover.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Carol Ann (the character) is NOT a maid[edit]

"... who played the Crawfords' maid Carol Ann" is incorrect. Carol Ann is Crawford's assistant. She helps Crawford deal with fan mail. --173.66.64.90 (talk) 04:34, 14 December 2009 (UTC)

Critical Reception[edit]

The "Critical Reception" section cites Rotten Tomatoes, which itself cites fewer than ten original reviews from the time the movie was released in 1981. Is that citation really, then, of any value at all, especially considering the fact that opinions have changed over the years as the film grew in terms of its cult status and broader cultural impact? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 208.120.206.72 (talk) 18:43, 30 April 2011 (UTC)
