Salt n Pepa needs a little more spice!
29 January 2021 | by fmatt-88980See all my reviews

This interesting look into the life and times of one of the 80s good but not great hip-hop duos comes off a bit amateurish. Considering the experience level of director Mario Van Peebles, this formulaic approach was missing a professional touch. The decision to place unknown and untested actors in starring roles might save the budget, but it insures that this style of film making will stay on the Lifetime channel where there is a ton of time to fill and nor enough original product. Black women viewers deserve better. I hope Queen Latifah's acting chops keep going up because this nonepic dioes nothing for her as a producer.
