I thought the movie exceeded the original. It was entertaining from beginning to end. Whitney's Houston's facial expressions are priceless, the best acting of her career. Jordin wasn't spectacular but that was made up for by Carmen Ejogo and Tamika Sumpter. Went with a group of about 10 people and everyone agreed it was better than we expected. Whitney Houston would be proud of her last film.
This movie was very good and entertaining. It was bittersweet seeing Whitney on the big screen, bitter because she is no longer here with us and sweet because it was great to see her at her best for the last time. If you are thinking about seeing this movie, let me help you, please go see it, you will laugh, cry and remember the legacy of Ms. Houston. Jordan and the other well known actors in the movie were fantastic. A Must See!
