Audience Reviews for Mama, I Want to Sing!

This movie is a little too preachy for my liking and has a bittersweet story. Overall the performances are good and the songs keep you hooked to the end.

Everything about this movie falls completely flat. The plot is totally overdone and unoriginal. The acting is one-dimensional. The production is low quality. And no one in the film is a good enough singer to mask the lack of any other redeeming qualities. Definitely not one of the better music-oriented movies I've seen.

Corny, cliche, predictable and bad acting flows through this movie. There are two talents in this movie, the voice of Ciara and Billy Zane but Zane has been doing nothing worth watching since after Demon knight(which he was amazing in!) and his talent is king to waste.
