Based on the memoir and exposé of the same name by Christina Crawford, the adopted daughter of actress Joan Crawford, Mommie Dearest depicts Joan as an abusive and manipulative mother. Though it was a box office hit ― grossing $39 million worldwide against a $5 million budget ― the Frank Perry-directed film was panned by critics mainly because of its bizarre script and exaggerated acting on the part of Faye Dunaway, who played Joan. In his one-star review, renowned critic Robert Ebert called the flick “unremittingly depressing, not to any purpose of drama or entertainment, but just to depress. It left me feeling creepy.”
