From my perspective
6 September 2018 | by visionarymmSee all my reviews

The BB story is a different experience from the NE biopic. While the NE biopic is similar to a good feeling coming of age movie, Bobby Browns story is a look at a hard road traveled and the realities that manifest from reckless choices, and the triumphs of overcoming the hard realities of those choices. I laughed, sung the hot BB hits, teared up during the tough scenes and gave praises when Bobby Brown begin to see a brighter day. I totally enjoyed this story. It tugs at the heart and was a fair look at the highly publicized story
