Main Players: Whitney Houston, Jordin Sparks, Derek Luke, Carmen Ejogo
General Gist: Three sisters work to form a girl singing group in the 1960's.
So another movie with a music theme. It's generally a miss for me when it comes to these but I will admit there have been a few hits. This one was not one of the few hits.
The music itself was good with amazing singers but the storyline wasn't well thought out. I felt like there were actually three different movies all mashed into one. The only "story" I thought was decent was about the last 45 minutes. And even then it wasn't an original story that deserved much praise. I think this was Jordin Sparks' debut movie. Her acting seemed safe and a little blah. The other two who played her sisters were much more compelling but again the story didn't quite fit. And unfortunately Whitney Houston looked a little rough. Not her most spectacular last performance on the big screen.
One more music movie bites the dust.
Tiff's Rate: Rent It
Preview: We have a couple bonus reviews to get up. Really, we do.
