The story of Legendary hip hop/r&b/pop trio TLC. The group rose to fame in 1991 when they signed to LaFace Records, releasing their multi-platinum debut. Their 1994 follow-up, CrazySexyCool sold over 22 million copies, and Fanmail sold over 10 million copies in 1999. This group experienced bankruptcy, illness, group fights, and death. All the while dominating the charts and the music industry.Written by
In the beginning of the movie, Pebbles mentions successful music groups, including The Supremes. Evan Ross, who played Dallas Austin, is the son of Diana Ross, one of the founding members of The Supremes. See more »
You can see the reflection of the camera man in the glass as he pans around during scene where Pebbles was talking to the girls in the studio after she yelled at them. See more »
As far as biopics go, this was one of the better ones. I liked learning about the group and its origins, including seeing things I had known about and seeing thing I hadn't. I liked the recreations of the videos, seeing them meet, the auditions for the record company, their first going out on the road, Left Eye displaying her "crazy" personality (including acting out in the bars and burning down Andre Rison's house), and the bandmates' reactions to her tragic death. I think this was pretty accurate and well made with excellent performances and good concert scenes.
