The Lifetime television network has released a trailer for their forthcoming Whitney Houston movie and it looks cheesy and clumsily made. The promo clip looks even worse that the poorly received "Aaliyah: The Princess Of R&B" also released by Lifetime. Once again, the movie suffers from substandard costumes that pale in comparison to the originals actually worn by the stars and terrible casting, which has even Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, laughing with scorn and derision on social networking.
Actors from Lifetime's forthcoming Whitney Houston biopic
In short, the movie looks like a mess, just like the Judiciary Report predicted several moths ago it would be. If the trailer, which is supposed to be some of the best highlights of the film looks this bad, the movie will be worse. It is poor filmmaking at the expense of music legends who died early, tragic deaths, making these ill-advised, poorly executed biopics even more distasteful.
Houston was a phenomenal talent. Her voice was exceptional and rare. She held her own in the massive hit film "The Bodyguard" even though it was her first outing as an actress. She did so much in breaking down barriers in the entertainment industry. Yet this is the garbage lifetime does with her life story. It’s just plain offensive. The movie looks cheap and tacky replete with infomercial acting.
