I would like to purchase this video, i did have one but somebody stole it, and I can't get it anywhere.
The movie is that great that I enjoyed the songs, music and the acting. I'm not a Michael Jackson fan but the story about him and his brothers lives really involved me in the movie. What their father did for them was something amazing but he was just too strict and then he just lost control of the something that was not his for he did not get to fulfil his dream but using his sons to fulfil it for him. But the Jackson 5 were great back then and still are, now and then I do listen to their music but today Michael Jackson has some of the best music, I do like some of them but others are just not Michael Jackson, it would be good if they can do another tour with the Jackson 5. I could just feel the music now. As I have added up the top I would like to purchase the video, some body stole the one I did have and now it is very hard to purchase one now.
