With fashion and a passionate love story as a backdrop to a wonderfully acted narrative, Mahogany is simply fabulous.

An outrageously bad '70s soaper with Anthony Perkins providing some big unintentional laughs as a psycho fashion photographer.

Even a charming last-minute happy ending can't quite redeem all the mess and unidentified dread.

a perfect companion piece to 'Dreamgirls'... Sitting through it is like flipping through your high school yearbook and laughing out loud at what was once considered stylish or sophisticated.

Wow! How far did Diana fall? Great song, though.

Feminists must have hurled their Earth Shoes at the screen when they saw this dreck.

Audience Reviews for Mahogany


I love that song, and the film's first hour is solid enough despite the occasionally risible lines, but then it starts to seem more and more like a cheap soap opera, with many contrived situations and a lame, awfully sexist conclusion that should make any feminist cringe with disgust.

Rather silly and a lot of fun until the hokey finale.

This movie has a very familiar story, but I think it's good anyway. The actors are good, and it's a good movie, I should watch it again sometime.
