I'm a lover of the original Sparkle...however this was done well albeit to the tune of every soap opera in the book...worth your matinee bucks...

It was a fun time

The movie was good. No spectacular acting, no actor stood out in particular but I enjoyed the story line. It's a fun movie to see. And remember parents...please don't take your young kids to see inappropriate films!

The story line was so weak. They should have done a true remake. Sister can not sing and she looked older then Whitney Houston. I was so disappointed. Don't waste your time or money just rent the Irene Cara movie.

Sparkle was nice

This movie had a great cast, and I did not enjoy Mike Epps being a bad guy. He probably wanted the more serious pimp like role, but I expected more jokes.

It was a delightful movie that brought tears to my eyes. It was bittersweet to see Whitney. She looked so healthy. Overall, I feel too loyal to the original to say that Sparkle 2012 was better, but I definitely give the producers an A+ for keeping just the right balance of respecting the 76 Sparkle but telling their own story in 2012. One more thing: That Jordan can SANG!!!!! Not sing, SANG!!!
