Trivia

Whitney Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown expressed interest in portraying her mother in a biopic. When asked in an interview with "Entertainment Weekly" whether director Angela Bassett considered casting Brown she said: "No, I did not think about that. I did not think about casting her. And probably for a number of reasons, you know. One being that she's not an actress. I know she's acted here and there. I know she's been on their family's reality show, but she's not an actress and acting is a craft." See more »

Goofs

At the beginning, when Whitney and Bobby are shopping on Rodeo Drive, logos for Moncler and Tom Ford are visible in the background. Neither store would have been established enough to have a store on Rodeo Drive. See more »

Shouldve been called "Bobby and Whitney Story" not "WHITNEY"
19 January 2015 | by countinstarsSee all my reviews

This movie was based on the relationship she had with Bobby, not about her childhood and transformation into an international superstar. This movie did her not justice as it showed her struggles with her boyfriend, then husband--not her as a budding phenomenal artist on the road to super stardom with Bobby just being the lover of her life and/or one of her problems. They need to make a better movie to do her life and career justice. It was not just about coke, sex, Bobby, and Whitney...which was the main focus of this biopic. Shame to even call it a biopic. It was just a love story. I am just writing more since I said I need 10 or more lines. Unbelievable...
