One of the absolute best biopics of all time!!!
27 October 2017 | by daughterof_annSee all my reviews

Excellent! Amazing! Spectacular!If you don't like the music group New Edition, You will love them after watching this movie!!!The young cast as fans affectionately call the little's,set the bar for the older cast to take over the screen! Affectionately and appropriately called black boy joy,these talented men portray the original members to the T!!!I'm a new fan of them all!They did the original members of New Edition proud! The singing and dance routines were phenomenal!! The entire cast was pure perfection,particularly the actresses that portrayed their single moms.I grew up being fans of the original group and I longed for the day to see this biopic because it was well deserved. Happy that all members still alive to see it.See This movie, and feel good about multi talented people on screen and off!! NE FOR LIFE!!!
