Everybody's in showbiz,everybody's a star .(Ray Davis)
The beginning promised great things .The dream of the father ,a working-class man ,to make his daughter a star ,what a good subject for a movie!There are plenty of good scenes:the song contest where the "singers " ape Madonna or Jackson and where the Otis Redding "double", with his "black" face ,takes the biscuit;the less-than-attractive fat daughter dreaming in her room;the kidnapping which increases Debbie's sales who has sold more now than Presley ,Jackson and the Beatles put together(sic).

Unfortunately,as soon as the star falls his love with her abductor,it's the beginning of the end:the script gets bogged down in clichés.The attack of the medias has been seen a thousand times or more .Finally ,what could have been a ferocious satire of the showbiz world becomes its glorification.Nothing is spared the viewer,even the ugly-duckling-turned-into-a-swan umpteenth version.Oh unlucky Manuelo!
