Initially I was all set to despise Tammy Faye (and her Maybelline eyes), big-time.

But, as it turned out (regardless of Tammy being something of a flake, and being someone who could cry on cue, and, obviously, being on her very best behavior for the duration of this documentary), I actually found her to be quite a sincere, and, yes, likable woman who (unable to dodge the spotlight) became a public target of ridicule and scorn all because of the greed and dishonesty of the men in her life.

Not only did I think that Tammy Faye was OK, but it also pleased me that this documentary's 2 producers/directors, Fenton Bailey & Randy Barbato, didn't try to rake Tammy through the coals or grind her over-made-up face into the dirt. 'Cause, believe me, these 2 definitely had plenty of opportunity to do just that.

I must applaud producers Bailey & Barbato for bringing to the forefront the clear hatred, the corrurption, the fraudulence, the back-stabbing and the in-fighting that prevailed amongst those hypocritcal "Children of God" in the dog-eat-dog world of TV, celebrity evangelism.

(*Special Note*) - Eight years following the release of this 1999 documentary, Tammy Faye, who was diagnosed with colon cancer, closed her Maybelline eyes for the last time and never regained consciousness again. She was 65 years old.

Other: This documentary puts TV Evangelists into a very bad light.
