  1. Another one of those Lifetime Biopics from the US. The same people that made that Biopic about R&B singer Aaliyah and received critical backlash for getting the casting wrong, the facts wrong and still went ahead with the production, despite the fact that the deceased singers family was against the making of the entire thing. Wont be tuning in.

  2. @DansDans, yes it is.

    I’d suggest everyone skip this movie though, it’s truly bad. According to this movie, Whitney’s career began in 1990 and ended in 1993.

    Probably correct to be honest, but to focus on one small period of her life was a slap in the face for Whitney fans.
