Okay for a TV-movie but had it been a theatrical release it would have gotten only half of it's rating
26 August 2014 | by (Edinbruhhh) – See all my reviews

People seem to be very generous towards the rating of this movie due to it being a made for TV movie, but I mean it can't be compared with theatrical releases like "Ray" or "Walk The Line" or even "Notorious" for that matter

It's just a obvious TV production and I expected a little more from it to be honest

I expected Left-Eyes burning down the house and death to have a bigger impact in the movie but it's all fairly rushed and portrayed without much depth

Something that's also lacking depth are the characters, especially the characters around the main characters, now I really like Evan Ross I think he's one of the better young black actors out there BUT I just don't see him playing Dallas Austin, it just doesn't work IMO...

All the boyfriends in their lives feel just like empty shells tbh, they namedrop Mack 10 who was T-Boz's man for a good while and they have a guy play him but I don't recall him even having any lines just standing in the background, and the guys who do have lines as I said don't feel very real

The TLC characters are a little better but they to come across as caricatures more then full-fleshed human beings occasionally

I don't think people who aren't TLC fans will get much out of this movie
