So So biography on the voice called whitey houston r.i.p.
18 January 2015 | by (Fort Lauderdale, Florida) – See all my reviews

Despite some good performances by Yaya DaCosta as whitney houston and the rest of the cast, this TV movie offers very little to the teleplay and even less about story, it's a story about whitney houston and her disastrous marriage to bobby brown all these years, plus her drug addiction and other stuff including bobby Christina, director angela bassett of what's love got to do with it and waiting to exhale fame has hit all the right notes, but misses it thanks to the overlong teleplay and so so cinematography, although this is not as bad as that truly dreadful aaliyah biography last year that was on lifetime, thanks to the better acting here, but still this is a serviceable film from a predicable Hollywood. I'm giving this one a C+
