  • In the end, you really are better off with the YouTube videos.

  • While the wisdom of Whitney's premise is debatable, Bassett's execution is confident and thoughtful.

    Joshua Alston

    AV Club
    Top Critic
  • There's something pure and insightful about how [Angela] Bassett's camera looks at this couple as they flirt, rut, marry, fight, talk about their careers, and experience wild ups and downs, including moments of professional resentment or jealousy.

    January 20, 2015 | Full Review…
  • While neither overly salacious or reverent, Whitney ... lacks dynamism in telling the tale of a very dynamic life, and falls short of illuminating anything about Houston that both diehard fans and casual observers of pop culture didn't already know.

  • DaCosta, a former America's Next Top Model contestant, instead captures the butterfly -- or the one people fell in love with in the first place.

    Top Critic
  • Working from a script by Shem Bitterman, Bassett manages to make both of her leads relatively sympathetic, and to keep the story moving even when not a lot is happening.
