Goofs

When Kayla is singing the club, Olivia walks in and Kayla covers her mouth but the voice in the song keeps going. So, obviously it was pre-recorded and she was lip-syncing. See more »

Too Much Weeping for Me
25 July 2000 | by (Silicon Valley, CA) – See all my reviews

Overall, it was a well told story. True, it's been done before (what story hasn't), but I still liked this spin on it. As Diana Ross wanted, we could all see she still looks wonderful, even though she has 5 grown kids. I had to laugh at the artfully placed ferns in the shower scene, though. The biggest negative was that Brandy was crying her eyes out every other scene. I felt like it detracted from the story by the end of the movie.
