Plot Summary
In 1968, girl groups and the Motown sound are sweeping the nation. Despite their mother's (Whitney Houston) misgivings, talented sisters Delores (Tika Sumpter), Sister (Carmen Ejogo) and Sparkle (Jordin Sparks) are taking Detroit by storm, and their dreams are even bigger. Their ambitious manager (Derek Luke) will do whatever it takes to make the big time, even if it means exploiting the sisters -- and his love for Sparkle -- for the foundation of a new musical empire.

    I gave this vey entertaining movie 5 stars for the music alone! While this was a sometimes over dramatic story it held my interest . I really thought Whitney Houston did a fine job also as the mother. Her gospel song was a very inspiring and well done by her . Jorden Sparks is wonderful and incredible as well as the girls who played her sisters. They reall did a great job of taking me back in time to the girl groups of the sixties music which I love.I will definitley buy this soundtrack!

    Great movie. The music was great. A movie that I can see with my family. Tika, Carmen and Whitney stood out.

    I loved it..Can\'t wait for the DVD....I agree I wish I could have seen more of Whitney, but the overall cast was good. I was in the audience routing for the girls.
