This movie, regardless of how good it is or anything else, will always be known as, the last movie Whitney Houston made.
With that out of the way… I have to say it looks really good. It’s a period movie set in the 1960’s when girl groups were all the rage. The story surrounds a group of sisters who can sing… boy they can sing. The get discovered and are soon the toast of the town. All the while their mother, played by Ms. Houston, warns them of the perils of the business they are getting into. She was once where they are and knows the rocket rise isn’t as fast as the meteoric fall back down to Earth.
With the talents of Whitney, Jordin Sparks, Tika Sumpter, Carmen Ejogo and my man Cee-Lo belting out some fantastic new tunes, I know the soundtrack will be stellar. I would venture a guess that at least one will be nominated come Academy time.
