Goofs

When Kayla is singing the club, Olivia walks in and Kayla covers her mouth but the voice in the song keeps going. So, obviously it was pre-recorded and she was lip-syncing. See more »

Peggy: [before showing her a tabloid of her and Kayla] This is not gonna make your day. The good news is they got it right. The bad new is they got it all.

Look, It's NOT that bad!
22 December 2006 | by Scoval71See all my reviews

Why all the negative reviews here? I think the movie was fine. And I liked it very much. I have one other review about another Diana Ross movie on my comments, and I repeat what I said there. Diana Ross is a superb talent--both as an actress and as a singer, This movie was somewhat far fetched, plot wise, but it showcased the enormous singing and acting---yes acting---talents of both Diana Ross and Brandy. Brandy is a fine actress and great singer in her own right. She is huge talent. The movie is good entertainment and I recommend it. Brandy, in a way, is sort of a younger version of Diana Ross. Well, she is not as pretty as once was Diana Ross, but she holds her own. I liked this movie and I enjoyed it.
