Critic Reviews for Sparkle
Though on paper the movie sounds like a slick relationship comedy, it plays much more realistically.
Most effective when the deceits perpetrated not just by Sam but by several others begin to take their wretched toll, and a real sense of pain intrudes.
Strongly natural performances and a likeable cast, plus a subtle examination of more serious themes, make it well worth seeing.
A little more cinematic flair might have made Sparkle live up to its title better.
Audience Reviews for Sparkle
A stellar supporting cast try to lift this above the mundane but the hackneyed script shackles it to dullsville.
Get it together, Sweetie!!! Before DREAMGIRLS (2006), there was SPARKLE - My ORIGINAL Inspiration on every creative level there is!!!
British film IS different but that's what I like so much about it. As for this one, it's definitely enjoyable but doesn't really offer anything new.
