THE EYES OF TAMMY FAYE | Official Trailer | In Theaters September 17

THE EYES OF TAMMY FAYE is an intimate look at the extraordinary rise, fall and redemption of televangelist Tammy Faye Bakker. In the 1970s and 80s, Tammy Faye and her husband, Jim Bakker, rose from humble beginnings to create the world’s largest religious broadcasting network and theme park, and were revered for their message of love, acceptance and prosperity. Tammy Faye was legendary for her indelible eyelashes, her idiosyncratic singing, and her eagerness to embrace people from all walks of life. However, it wasn’t long before financial improprieties, scheming rivals, and scandal toppled their carefully constructed empire.

    I think it's interesting how Tammy Faye is being played by a "Jessica" when in real life, she got screwed over by her husbands affair with a "Jessica"...Hahn.

    Looks terrible. Neither Chastain nor Garfield look like the actual people they're portraying, the prosthetics are way too fake looking. And also, there is a great documentary of the same name told by Tammy Baker herself, guaranteed that this story won't be nearly as fascinating as that one was.

    I know this will probably be well-received, but this looks like the worst bit of farce I've seen in a long time. Jessica does not look, sound, sing, or behave anything like Tammy Faye. It's frustrating because this could have been a really interesting movie, but once again, Hollywood went with stunt-casting and inaccuracy.

    Jim Baker is back on a religious cable program but does not have as many followers as before. Jimmy Swaggart is also back on Christian Cable. It seems like he is his same ole critical self as if he never had a major sex scandal much like Baker. I don't see the resemblance where this actress looks like Tammy Faye like some are saying. The actor that portrays Jim Baker is more similar in appearance to the real one. Both Tammy and her competitor Jan Crouch who was Co-founder of TBN were into clownish heavy make up, and eye shadow when the Bible calls for women to be moderate in appearance. The advent of Christian Broadcasting = Televangelism seemed like a Tale of Two Cities. On the negative side, TV Evangelism opened the door to the Prosperity Gospel with greed and also made many unlearned, gullible Christians who must have never read their entire Bible word for word buy into the scam message that God will bless and prosper them if they sent in cash money to a Televangelist and kept their Network going. Jesus said "Paid in full" as He was dying in His sacrificial atoning payment for our sins which applies to anyone who trust Him as their Lord and Savior will be Saved & blessed free of charge. Jesus never at any time said Pay in Full like some of those TV preachers and their sow a seed (Cash) to reap a harvest in blessings would have you believe. On the positive side of Christian television, it has offered hope and inspiration with great choirs and encouragement. All one has to do is eat the fish but spit out the bones when it comes to TBN. Not sure why they have turned so Political. Jesus never got into praising, and running after the Political leaders of His day. Jesus = God said If He is Lifted Up He Will Draw People to God. Shamefully, many Evangelicals appear to be looking for a Political savior = Trump, as if they think Jesus is not enough to transform sinners into Saints and change a person's heart?

    Really had very extremely little knowledge of these people but it's sad to see, as a christian, so much garbage that has been done in the name of Christ. Most people in America even today don't even know what true Christianity is because partly due to the likes of people like this that still exist today. This looks like an interesting movie don't get me wrong but unfortunately it's going to present to people what they think Christianity is. When it's nothing like.
