  • A Masterpiece

    You’ll cry your eyes out.
  • Same old formula

    By 420timekeeper
    Wokeness fails again. Hollywood can’t make a movie without beating people over the head with illogical woke politics.
  • Whitney

    They told Whitney’s true story
  • Distorted

    By ehhemmer
    Switched off after 10 minutes as the opening theme is all about LGBT promoting the spirit of the age. It takes away so much of the exceptional musical gift and message that Whitney was, which should have set the tone for the story.
  • Great!

  • Never Saw It, But Heard It’s Better Than The Lifetime Movie About Her

    By Maleficent1999
    Though I never saw “Whitney Houston: I Wanna Dance With Somebody” at the theaters, I’ve heard from 1 person that said this movie about Whitney Houston is certainly better than the Lifetime movie about her. I can definitely agree because this movie actually got more things right about Whitney Houston’s life than wrong in comparison to the Lifetime movie. The thing that’s still being debated is how exactly Bobby Brown proposed to her, even in this movie. Naomi Ackie does an excellent job at portraying Whitney Houston well. In short, I love “Whitney Houston: I Wanna Dance With Somebody”.
  • I loved Whitney Houston’s voice but this is meh

    It’s disturbing that Hollywood needs to inject political race crap into every thing. Teaching people to see color is truly sad. I don’t believe anything from this film. But can’t deny that Whitney was amazing, always brings tears and makes me cry when I hear Whitney sing ♥️♥️♥️ she was original she was unbelievably talented, she is missed. This gets 3 stars because Whitney was an icon.
  • Outstanding - true to life

    The trajectory of this movie continues to climb even after it ends. You feel Whitney Houston and her music way after the movie ends. The performance by Naomi Ackie portraying Whitney Houston is like Whitney came to life thru Naomi. It takes you through the life of Whitney up til her untimely end. It is worth seeing and sharing to tell the life of someone who beat the record of the Beatles and Elvis. Amazing!!!
