Trivia

The events prior to the house fire, caused by Left Eye, are somewhat debated. The version of events as told by Left Eye during the making of the documentary "Last Days of Left Eye" include a brawl between two parties, meaning that more people were in the house at the time of the fire. See more »

Goofs

The outfit Lisa is wearing when she burns down the house is different to the outfit she is wearing when Tionne & Chilli find her in the woods. The outfit is in fact the same outfit that Lisa wore when she confronted Andre & his mistress. See more »

Enjoyed It
24 October 2013 | by tanishia-allenSee all my reviews

I enjoyed the film. It's honestly sad to see how the music industry can mess with people that have dreams of becoming a superstar. It shows how it can be a tough ride in a crazy music world. Decent!!

I think they did a good job of casting the girls. It showed everything from Love to torn friendships to Family. I really enjoyed how the showed the relationships the ladies went through. I like how honest chilli was with her story in this movie. I was surprised at how little LA Reid played in this movie. Carl Payne didn't really have too many lines in this film, I would have expected more since he was part of the bigger picture. I would have thought they would have also included Babyface. Overall it's a solid movie that anyone watching will enjoy.
