10/10 - One of the best documentaries i've ever seen!
3 November 2017 | by pmcnamee-41605See all my reviews

Todrick truly gives his fans, which are known as Toddlerz, an inside look into his creative process and how he brings his ideas to life. You see happy moments, stressful moments, and some crisis moments. It's amazing to see how Todrick can pull an album and a tour together so fast, it's just incredible. He directed, starred in, danced in and sang in every song and video. If you want to know what talent truly is, watch this documentary and see how talented Todrick is! I went to North Carolina, from Philadelphia PA to see it with some of my best friends, that I've met because of Todrick, and we laughed, cried, and sang along the whole way through!

If you think you know how creative and talented Todrick Hall is or want to get to know him, watch this documentary! You'll be even more impressed and fall in love with him!

You will not be disappointed!!
