good biography, nice family movie, music and dancing was great
10 April 2002 | by (Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

I liked the movie, despite anything wrong with it, I thought it was a good show and had like only one cuss word in it or something.

I think if it was a national movie and not a cable movie a lot more would have been put into it, I thought Lamont Bentley looked a little like Tupac, he did a great acting in bringing out the late singer. I thought in all it was a good biography and wouldn't mind owning it and watching it over and over again.
