Storyline Heading
Musical prodigy, Sparkle struggles to become a star while overcoming issues that are tearing her family apart. From an affluent Detroit area and daughter to a single mother, she tries to balance a new romance with music manager, Stix while dealing with the unexpected challenges her new life will bring as she and her two sisters strive to become a dynamic singing group during the Motown-era.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama Musical - This is an update of the period music-themed drama from 1976. While the character types and certain story points and arcs remain, this isn't a straight-ahead remake as it fleshes out and alters certain elements and shifts the time period from the '50s to the '60s. Urban audiences, particularly women, remain the target. While the late Whitney Houston has a supporting role, fans should be pleased with her screen time and performance. Fans of singer Jordin Sparks should be pleased with her debut acting showcase though the subject matter of the film skews a bit older. Despite his prominent billing, Cee-Lo Green only has a very brief cameo. Adult subject matter, drugs, violence, and language make the film inappropriate for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good 'Sparkle' isn't blindingly original but it delivers solid entertainment, and despite the clichés I was never for a moment bored.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average The melodramatic story is familiar, though the talented cast makes the most of rather tired material.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Above Average 'Sparkle' may have begun as nothing more than a tuneful, diverting nostalgia trip, but it turns out to be a surprisingly poignant swan song.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 58 moviegoers:
WOW! Fantastic Reviews from virtually everyone. As with most movies, there always seems to be a few who have an opinion WAY different the the majority and "Sparkle" is no different. The main group to look at is the adult females, since there are quite a few reviews, It's clear that nearly everyone LOVED "SPARKLE." And the ladies can "safely" bring their significant other since the guys also rated it very high.
