Grit meets Hollywood
4 September 2010 | by (US) – See all my reviews

A sweet, interesting mix of gritty, hand-held street style film-making, with a much more Hollywood story - a melodrama about girl singing group trying to make it, and get out of the ghetto

Ultimately a little thin on the character and emotional level for me, although I'll take it over a Hollywood bio-pic any day. But cliché's are cliché's, even if they're handled with more energy and panache than usual. You can see a lot of twists and conflicts coming a mile off.

Also, some of the acting is pretty stiff – it feels like weak improvisation. Per several articles on the film, the women were picked for singing ability (which is very high, great voices!) first, and acting second.

Most of the songs are terrific, a few are a little lame.

Bottom line, if you're interested in the subject, it's worth seeing.
