chaunnahill - 11 January 2023 I had to watch this but didnt have to Love it I adored Whitney. Her sad demise still brings tears to my eyes. She was an absolutely beautiful woman. I have watched many documentaries and read Robyn's book. Naomi's performance was excellent. It was quite amazing but I dont think this movie was done well. In this Netflix generation that we are in, we always want more and this movie gives us less. It jumped around like a rabbit on crack. I know that we all love her performances but there was too much of that and not enough substance. This needs to be done again as a Netflix epi show and I wouldnt be mad if Naomi gets the part again. I needed more of Whitneys heart, more depth, more good times and bad. The true life connections and disconnections were just not there for me. Netflix, come on, you can do ths true justice. Love you Nippy.
curtwes - 9 January 2023 DISRESPECT TO THE GREAT WHITNEY HOUSTON This movie was a slap in the face to the great Whitney Houston. It was an insult to her talent as well as her legacy. The film was low budget as well as the actors and actresses. Only in America can white people tarnish the image of black icons and be rewarded. A d shame and to all the people who actually participated in this atrocity of a film you all should be a shame of yourselves. Whitney was literally the Princess of Pop, she came into the industry and blew the roof off. She was undeniably the most unique being, her voice was truly one of a kind and there will never ever be another. Bad m.
