Originally the main character, Sam, was going to be an electrician. That is why the title was Sparkle. (In the UK, a sparky is a nickname for someone in that profession.) Over time, the plot developed and Sam's character was just looking for any kind work when he went to London. The producers, however, still wanted to call the film Sparkle so had to come up with another reason for that. They therefore gave Sam the surname Sparks, and developed his mum's character as a singer. See more »

i love this movie.even though this was a simple no point movie i live Stockard Channing and think she does an excellent job in whatever shes in. this movie, although not the conventional love story, will steel your heart and have you wanting more.Although i hardly know any of the British actors in this film except the man who plays uncle Luke i thought all were phenomenal.its was a funny down to earth film that I'm sure if we don't relate to it someone we know can.i also advice you to check out some of her other films as well as the other actors you might like them.you should watch this movie it will make you laugh =]. Also i think that it could be a great date movie just not on the first one.
