I understand the concept of discipline, but to go the extremes of going completely off the wall over wire hangers?! and how about the scene where she chops Christina's hair because she caught her playing with her things? I don't know...just seems a little too extreme but then again there are people out there who go to the extreme..
After watching Mommie Dearest, there were a few things I learned from this movie was that
- my mommie dearest wasn't nearly as neurotic as Joan is portrayed, and I'm grateful for that!
- make-up can be scary especially when you're wearing cold cream, and red lipstick and you're yelling "No more wire hangers!"
- that gardening is a lot more fun when you do it in the middle of the night wearing a one of your best gowns!
