The story of three people who strive to realize their dreams. Brothers Carter and Ellis set out on a road trip to their childhood home in a desperate search for their estranged father, who may hold the key to their future.
Billie Frank is a shy, young multiracial girl who is sent away by her alcoholic mother at a very early age. At an orphanage, she befriends Louise and Roxanne. Flash forward to 1983. Billie and her friends are spotted by a record producer, Timothy Walker, who wants them to sing backup for his latest pop-music discovery. But when super DJ Julian Dice hears Billie's incredible voice, he makes a shady deal with Timothy to get her out of that dead-end situation. Soon, Billie and Dice are making hits inside the studio, and falling in love outside of it. Eventually, the pressure of her newfound celebrity puts too heavy a strain on Billie, forcing her to decide what it is she really wants from Dice, and what she wants for herself.Written by
Mariah Carey had been suffering from depression prior to and during the production of the film, this lead to her breakdown shortly after the film's release and being hospitalized. She was on antidepressants during the production, and in a few scenes, she's under the influence of the medication. See more »
This film wasn't as bad as I thought but it wasn't good. It was still utter crap on stick. Mariah as many have said is as wooden as the huge horse in Troy and I'm so sorry that someone like Max Beesley has been brought into a film like this.
If this film had of been done differently E.G. different female lead and as much as I love Mr Beesley replace him too. Then if some Hollywood hotshots are brought in it could be OK once the script is totally replaced.
Then again some apparent Hollywood hotshots can't save a film E.G. Gigli. For the love of god this world's going nuts.
