When The Jackson 5 perform the song "Never Can Say Goodbye", the actor playing Michael pulls an obvious mistake in mouthing the song. In the chorus, he adds the word "baby" in a spot where it doesn't belong. See more »
I and my whole family love the Jackson's movie! The songs, the dancing, the acting, and their story was so fascinating and vivid. Joseph's character was so driven and instrumental to the movie and the success of the Jackson family. It is so clear to see how the Jackson's home life and the early years really affected them as adults. It is more Michael-centered than the other siblings, but what do you expect when he is practically the most famously known Jackson. There are so many cameos in this movie and other actors that you'll be sure to recognize. The time rolls by when watching this film and the drama, energy, and excitement just builds and builds to the powerful ending.
