Storyline

Billie Frank is a shy, young multiracial girl who is sent away by her alcoholic mother at a very early age. At an orphanage, she befriends Louise and Roxanne. Flash forward to 1983. Billie and her friends are spotted by a record producer, Timothy Walker, who wants them to sing backup for his latest pop-music discovery. But when super DJ Julian Dice hears Billie's incredible voice, he makes a shady deal with Timothy to get her out of that dead-end situation. Soon, Billie and Dice are making hits inside the studio, and falling in love outside of it. Eventually, the pressure of her newfound celebrity puts too heavy a strain on Billie, forcing her to decide what it is she really wants from Dice, and what she wants for herself.

Mariah Carey is a top-notch actress
19 May 2004 | by zack-50See all my reviews

Personally, I do not understand why this movie has received much bad press. Even though I am a huge Mariah Carey fan, this movie was a very nice tale that had many links back to Carey's own biography, which interested me more.

The music (soundtrack) was superb and I've watched/listened to the movie countless times. All the characters acting was high quality (except for a couple of cheesy instances) and their lives were interesting.

It made me laugh and cry, but mainly, it made me smile.

A lot of people are quick to judge a movie simply because it has the "Mariah Carey" name on it (whether good or bad). This WAS a good movie and deserves much more than what is given.
