Jermaine Jackson's real life son Jermaine Jackson ll plays him in the film. Oddly enough he is billed as Jermaine (aged 13-17), but in actuality, his son plays him from when the boys are just starting the Jackson 5 until they are almost adults so ages 10-17. He is also the only actor to act alongside all the actors playing Jackie, Tito, Marlon and Michael at different ages except the adult Michael and Marlon. Colin Steele played adult Jermaine for the last part of the film. See more »
During the montage of the group's touring experiences, there is a shot of the adult Jermaine character riding on the plane. After this montage, the movie continues using the teenage Jermaine character. See more »
Hey, Jermaine, why don't you help out the brothers? Talk to Berry. He is your father-in-law.
Look, father-in-law is one thing, group is another. Anyway. we got a winning combination. A seven-year run of hits.
Got no more hits.
We'll get it back, man. I'm not running to my father-in-law every time someone's got a complaint. You wanna talk to him, talk to him.
I wanna talk to him, but he ain't gonna wanna listen.

This movie is terrific. The Director lets the story unfold without resorting to histrionics. The different boys playing Michael are all wonderful and evoke the charm that made the real 10 year old into a star. Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs does wonderful work portraying a man that many have vilified without adding his own judgment.
Special mention should be made to the choreography: Michael Peters does an excellent job of recreating the signature moves of the Jackson 5, and the scene with Jackie Wilson subtly suggests many of the steps that a real-life Michael Jackson uses.
I enjoy this movie and can't wait to see it again.
