(CNN) The stars outshine the movie in "The Eyes of Tammy Faye," a dazzling showcase for Jessica Chastain and Andrew Garfield as Tammy Faye and Jim Bakker in a dutiful, somewhat disjointed chronicle of how the televangelists amassed great wealth before his disgraced fall.
While it's not a landslide vote, thanks to Chastain's disappearing act, "The Eyes" have it.
Spanning several decades (and burying the leads under makeup before it's over), the film begins with Tammy and Jim meeting in 1960 and follows them into the '90s.
"God does not want us to be poor," a young Jim says, raising the eyebrows of his Bible teacher.
Within a few years, they discover television, taking a job working for Pat Robertson's Christian broadcasting operation, with Jim spouting the word and Tammy beguiling kids with puppets and song.
