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.
