MUST See for NE fans...or any music lover!
14 August 2019 | by KrdeermanSee all my reviews

As a teen of the 80's, this was the ultimate in entertainment! The story was so wonderfully told. The entire cast was spot on. And the music...well, I don't even need to tell you! With the Face, Reid, Lewis and Jam flare, you know it's magic! So many moments brought a genuine smile to my face. Even the filler music was phenomenal. You will be blasted to the past and learn so much about this brotherhood. I loved these guys before (mistakes and all), but I adore them now! I'm certain I will watch this numerous times for the music alone. Any New Edition fan will not regret watching this!
