    This film "Tabloid" is libelous and defamatory of Ms. McKinney! Errol Morris and his "producers' pretended to be "from Showtime Network doing a TV series on Paparazzi" in order to trick her into an interview. While Morris interviewed Joyce for a non- existent TV series, his cronies ransacked her luggage, stole her family photograph albums, her family's home movies, two film treatments, and even her mother's baby pictures of her plus a valuable memorabilia collection doc**enting her famous love story. Morris and his slimey editors then took her "Showtime interview" and deliberately edited out anything which proved she was innocent, including a transcript of an illegally tape recorded intimate phone conversation between her and her fiance Kirk which PROVES she was innocent as Kirk says he loves her, and that the Mormons have brought in PR teams to spread the phony kidnap rape yarn to save their multi-milion dollar Mormon Image. Watch this film "Tabloid" closely as Morris manipulates the audience with a bizarre techinque which reminds us of subliminal advertising: For example he takes sleazy "sex ads" for prostitutes and S&M freaks out of some trashy sex papers, then deceptively flashes them by so fast the audience doesn't have time to see that they aren't even JOYCE in the ads--but some brunette women with whips and chains! Morris uses three dishonest people who he PAID CASH to, to tell a counterfeit Joyce McKinney "story"! (Two of these actors are nuts who have NEVER EVEN MET HER. Another one is a slimey big eared midget pilot with a letcherous face, who fabricates an inventive story about "her wearing a see through blouse" and "going out with her" and "going flying to a hotel and nude beach" --all OBVIOUS LIES and just in his fantasies, yet Morris stamps THE TRUTH across his face, thus slandering Joyce, who HATES flying and never even dated this creep!) Another kook is a MORMON GAY MISSIONARY who earns the CASH Morris and his producer Lispon PAID him by trying to help Morris confuse the theatre audience by trying to convince them that there are THREE versions of story, when in Reality there is only ONE---that of Joyce, the ONLY PERSON IN THE FILM WHO WAS ACTUALLY IN ENGLAND at Joyce's and Kirk's "honeymoon cottage". Let's hope the audience isn't as dumb--as Morris--and his Mormon sourced "tabloid tall tale tellers"--think they are.
    "Tabloid" is a COUNTERFEIT Joyce McKinney story by tabloid worshiper Errol Morris! It has no basis in Reality. Joyce's story {which in real life was a love story and cult rescue saga about an Erin Brockovich type lady who battles a huge corporate empire which operates under the guise of a "religion"}, will do much better as a feature film -- told as a straight story without Morris' shoddy special effects (like where he, like the tabloids super-imposes Joyce's head on another model's naked body to make her falsely appear loose moraled and a "nude model" which she never was in real life.) Morris also takes every wild LIE the Mormon PR machine gave to the press for 34 years--and tries to make those lies look "real" in the film --so the audience won't suspect the truth, and to help his Mormon comrades bring Joyce up to public ridicule. (She is going to sue Morris in a fifty million dollar slander action, and after seeing this celluloid catastrophe, one can see why! She is also considering pressing Criminal Charges against them for the theft of her photos, and memorabilia collection, Fraud and Theft by Deception, which can land Morris and his sleazy producers--especially Lipson-- in a lot of hot water!) This film tabloid is NOT the TRUE Joyce McKinney story. Joyce is writing an autobiographical book and a screenplay about her love story/cult rescue saga in England which will be accurate and factual, unlike this silly sex comedy "Tabloid" which maliciously slanders her and caused great emotional trauma to her and her innocent family. Actresses all over Hollywood are fighting to play her in a feature film, and even an award winning actress (the talented Kirsten Dundst) called Joyce personally to ask to buy the rights so she could play her, calling it "the role of a lifetime". So if you want to see the real Joyce McKinney story, you'll have to wait til the feature comes out. OR you can go see this "Tabloid" trash, and met her in person, as she often goes to screenings to herself--hoping to find someone who will help her tell the TRUE story. She may be at the Four-plex in Santa Monica on Thursday, or the Music Hall in Beverly Hills on Saturday night, for a Q and A, we heard!....

    This is a very different movie. It is a doc**entary of real events. The characters and story makes for riveting cinema. The whole story is rather incredible and it is made with the main character interviewed live as well as other first hand characters and it is mixed in with original newspaper ad magazine photos and stories and some animation and acted scenes thrown it for descriptions. It is well worth seeing. The director left the story as it is with mysteries and uncertainties for YOU to ponder. It is not a Hollywood treatment and there is no concluding ending. It just leaves you pondering. And there are plenty of questions about human nature to ponder.

    This is a doc**entary about Joyce McKinney and her crazy story, the film is directed by Errol Morris. I really liked this doc**entary and I highly recommend seeing it in the theaters. I could not believe that McKinney’s story is actually real, I mean it is absolutely crazy and insanely entertaining to watch. i think that the doc**entary is very well done and it is edited masterfully. I think that the director has chosen a very good subject, Joyce is definitely a charachter and she loves to tell her insane story. The women is absolutely oblivious and I think she would make a perfect reality TV star nowadays. Overall, I was very entertained by this film and had fun watching it.

    This is a doc**entary about tabloid star of 1977, Joyce Mckinney, and it is directed by Errol Morris. I really liked this doc**entary and I recommend seeing it in the theaters. The film was very interesting and mesmerizing, I have never heard about Joyce Mckinney before and i was fascinated by her crazy story. I think the director chose an excellent subject and she kept on giving throughout the whole film. The director made this film in order to find ou how tabloid stories affect people and why those stories fascinate people so much. i think it is a strong doc**entary and I definitely had a good time watching it.
