Trivia

The closing duet "Love is All That Matters" was expected to be released as a single but has only ever appeared as a Diana Ross solo track on her album "Everyday is a New Day". See more »

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 »

Quotes

Kayla Harris: Don't start on Ric because you don't even know him.
Olivia King: I've known a lot of Rics. *You* don't know him.

Not so much double platinum, more fool's gold.
20 January 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Further proof that Americans aren't as tasteless as many Brits insist comes from the news that this TV movie was a resounding (and deserved) flop when it aired on ABC - Diana Ross' first film since "The Wiz" casts her as a singing superstar who abandoned her daughter (played by Brandy) in her bid for superstardom, and now wishes to a) get back into her life and b) give her a hand in making it herself. The two stars also served as two of the FIVE executive producers, making this a vanity project times two - our divas take it in turns to exercise their lungs, and if you're a fan of either you may enjoy it on that basis alone.

But unfortunately the laughable dramatics and inability to believe the two women could be related (in anything other than egomania) makes this tough sledding. You may find yourself wishing that the fisherman from "I Still Know What You Did Last Summer" would show up and finish Brandy off once and for all - and go after Miss Ross for good measure.

And as for Diana's clothes - WHY?
