Storyline

Billie Frank is a shy, young multiracial girl who is sent away by her alcoholic mother at a very early age. At an orphanage, she befriends Louise and Roxanne. Flash forward to 1983. Billie and her friends are spotted by a record producer, Timothy Walker, who wants them to sing backup for his latest pop-music discovery. But when super DJ Julian Dice hears Billie's incredible voice, he makes a shady deal with Timothy to get her out of that dead-end situation. Soon, Billie and Dice are making hits inside the studio, and falling in love outside of it. Eventually, the pressure of her newfound celebrity puts too heavy a strain on Billie, forcing her to decide what it is she really wants from Dice, and what she wants for herself.

Trivia

Instead of releasing the film on DVD, 20th Century Fox surrendered the rights to Columbia Pictures, which distributed the film outside the U.S. It made just over $5 million (US) worldwide, and was universally panned by critics. The soundtrack CD was the weakest-selling album in Mariah Carey's career, prompting Virgin Records/EMI to sever their ties with her. See more »

Goofs

When Billie is sitting at the keyboard, she puts a pad down, and lays a pen on top. The pen rotates between shots, note the direction which the nib faces. See more »

Quotes

Dice: [to Billie] Do you really think inside your mind that because you swing your ass around on stage and you hit a couple of high notes here and there, that you are some colossal success?

Mariah Carey is a top-notch actress
19 May 2004 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Personally, I do not understand why this movie has received much bad press. Even though I am a huge Mariah Carey fan, this movie was a very nice tale that had many links back to Carey's own biography, which interested me more.

The music (soundtrack) was superb and I've watched/listened to the movie countless times. All the characters acting was high quality (except for a couple of cheesy instances) and their lives were interesting.

It made me laugh and cry, but mainly, it made me smile.

A lot of people are quick to judge a movie simply because it has the "Mariah Carey" name on it (whether good or bad). This WAS a good movie and deserves much more than what is given.
