Very Enjoyable. I do think it's a must see.

Overall I thought the movie was very good. I think the story around Sparkle took to loong to develop and there was too much emphasis on her older sister's life. Would liked to hear Jordin Sparks sing more anda duet with Whitney would have been just the touch. All in all I enjoyed the movie and recommend others go see it.

This movie was FANTASTIC! Whitney Houston's role as a mother was believeable. What I liked the most was the fact that it was not a replica of the first Sparkle movie with Irene Cara. The basic story was the same, however there were a few differences from the original so that you will be surprised. Miss Sparks tore that stage up. I'd say that this is a "must see" movie.

Went to late night viewing of Sparkle. It was very well done and to think not one word of profanity and still captivating viewing. It just goes to show that we can make quality films without the shock factor. Kudos to Bishop Jakes, the director and Whitney for having vision. We've only just begun. It's an inspiring movie for all people with so many messages...honoring parents, parents encouraging the spiritual gifts in their children, sisterhood, saving yourself for marriage, the hazards of drug use, aspiring to achieve an education, the business end of entertainment and so much more.... Dig deep into the movie and be inspired.

I wasn't sure what to expect , but I was pleasantly suprised . The acitng was great , Whitney Houston was great and sounded wonderful too. I did'nt know Jordin had that great deep voice. Everyone singing was great . It was bittersweet to see Whitney get back in the game never know ing how far she would have gone and too see her do such a beautiful job in this film.

Whitney is awesome! Jordin Sparks surprised me. And, Carmen Ojogo is everything wonderful in the film. I thoroughly enjoyed the production and direction as well. A great film and an honor to the legend, Ms. Whitney Houston. Go see it!
