The campy 1967 film adaptation of Jacqueline Susann's bestselling novel "Valley of the Dolls" has had great legs. Though critics lambasted it, the melodrama about three young performers spiraling out of control on booze and drugs (a.k.a. dolls) grossed a then-hefty $44 million at the box office and has been widely embraced by film fans because it is so outlandish and absurd.

"Isn't She Great" is just the movie Jacqueline Susann deserves--and that is no put-down. In telling the story of the publicity-hound author of "Valley of the Dolls," director Andrew Bergman and writer Paul Rudnick give Susann's life mythical dimension in a mix of fact and fictionalized supporting characters that allows them to create a satire of popular culture and the flowering of celebrity worship from the '40s through the '70s that is as affectionate as it is hilarious.
