Now who the hell gave sparkle one damn star!? Also, someone said something about "Effie", talking about this is based off the Supremes..Fool this isn't Dreamgirls... LMAO I guess we really do all look a like to you morons. Back to the movie, and enough about dummies, this movie is a more of a coming of age story. The girls have a strict hard working mother, all can sing and are beautiful. In the 1950's everyone wanted to be a star. Not everyone made it. I love this movie. Drugs, music, heartache, hard work, thieves, liars, and love. Sounds like a the makings of all great musical movies to me! <3 Of most rags to riches stories, this one is one of my favorites. The music, the singing... and the story are great.

Music is incredible! The music in this film is by far the greatest part. Lonette McKee shines as, Sistah. The storyline isn't difficult to follow.The acting as a whole is good, not necessarily outstanding, but good.The lighting is poor and can take away from some of the scenes, All in all, I still think Sparkle is an easily lovable film and one worth seeing. It is definitely one worth hearing, and no you can't just get the soundtrack. The soundtrack is sung by Aretha franklin, and as much as I love Ms. franklin...these songs need to be heard by the cast.

Something about this dragged - the story was the usual overnight success followed by disaster arising from crime and drugs - but mostly it needed better singers.

This movie is good. Reminds me of DreamGirls but with more tragedy and struggle.

Sparkle is an amazing film. It is about a girl group who experiences turmoil after one of their members turns to drugs and another achieves their desired fame all by herself. Phillip Michael Thomas and Irene Cara give terrific performances. The screenplay is well written. Sam O'Steen did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this movie because of the drama and music. Sparkle is a must see.
