News & Interviews for Sparkle
Critic Reviews for Sparkle
It's a rags-to-riches story that doesn't miss a stop along the well-trod ghetto-to-musical-charts path, but makes its journey with tuneful conviction.
Hackneyed, ho-hum 1976 feature about a black girl group, clearly modeled on the Supremes.
Drab as it is, Sparkle's worth renting for Lorette McKee's performance and the cast renditions of Mayfield's songs. But if you're going to buy anything it should be the soundtrack album.
Good performances from the principals and a score by Curtis Mayfield nearly raise this film to a more distinguished level.
