Let Me Put You On: Jackie’s Back

I was sitting at my desk, eating some off-brand, Oreo-esque cookies, enjoying the mess out of Youtube, when I came across this hilarious Robert Townsend directed, made-for-TV movie.  It stars  the absolutely lovely, and ultra-talented, Jenifer Lewis.  She’s one of my favorite actresses.  My mom’s too.  It’s rare that we have the same tastes in anything, which means Ms. Lewis is amazing!

Everyone is in this movie from Loretta Devine, to Whoopi Goldberg (who plays her sister), to Tim Curry, to Bette Midler.  It also stars, Isabel Sanford, Kathy Griffin, Chris Rock, Howie Mandel, Liza Minnelli and more.  It’s a really eclectic cast.  It aired on Lifetime in 1999.

This is a great movie.  It is hilarious, but touches on some real emotions.  Then goes right back to being hilarious.  It’s the portrayal of a singer, Jackie Washington,  who garnered fame as a child, on through adulthood, then faded away.  Now she’s making a comeback.

Check it out below.

Thank you for reading!

Peace.
