    I think the Sparkle movie is going to be a hit especially since this was Whitney Houstons last movie performance. That woman will be deeply missed by all. But having Carmen, Jordin, and Tika play her daughters will really be a sight to see

  • Fe

    I am anticipating the release of this movie because the original is an all time classic to me. I grew up watching “Sparkle” over and over again, with a lil “Lady Sings the Blues” in between. Music has changed tremendously and just about anyone can be signed now-a-days but this movie is about passion, motivation and struggles and how none of that stopped these girls from fulfilling what the had dreamed. I love it and Im overly-excited that it has been re-made.

  • Shay2LeFunk

    My sister and I used to watch the original Sparkle movie on VHS almost everyday. We knew the lines, lyrics and dance steps. I must admit, I was disappointed at first hearing of a remake… BUT when the cast was announced and the trailers started, I was eager to see how the Akil couple would make one of my favorite classics NEW. I, of course, anticipate seeing the wonderful Whitney Houston on screen and hearing her lovely voice again. I am also proud of Jordin Sparks and look forward to seeing her ‘sparkle’.

    In honor of the late great and phenomenal Whitney Houston, it is only right that I pay my respect in seeing this movie. I have been a fan of her since knee high blowing down her ballots.

I will never forget Whitney Houston no matter what she has done good or bad. She will forever be in my heart. R.I.P Whitney Houston

I seen the original version of the movie already just imagine how powerful this movie will be.

    I want to say that Sparkle will be such an amazing movie because our belived Whitney is in this film. She is so inspiring and happily spirited all the time. Gone but NEVER forgoten. Another reason would be with all of these great actors, actresses, and singers, it is like a fun musical allowing you to relive history all over again. Music that meant something, that had soul to it.

    I am so excited to see the new sParkle because there is an amazing cast that will be showcasing a lot of raw talent. Seeing the original sparkle a few times prepares my mind to get ready to engage In one of the best renditions of a classic film. I absolutely love Whitney Houston and felt it was my duty to see her last work of art. When I found out that the late Aaliyah houghton was suppost to play the original sparkle I became intrigued to find out how jordin sparks would take on the role. Seeing as how her last name is sparks and the new movie is named sparkle she sounde like the perfect fit. I know this movie will warm my heart and forever be one of my favorites! Friday can’t come fast enough. I am a fan a wonderful production and and raw talent

  • http://twitter.com/nivlekbrad Kelvin Bradford

    I loved the original movie as a child. Now, almost 40 years later, I’m excited again. I can’t wait to see how they updated the characters and story line to reflect 2012. Not to mention the performances by Whitney and Jordin!

  • kim

    I look forward to a long overdue remake of a classic. I was a teen during the original, as a woman i can fully appreciated how this movie is still relevant even in 2012. I am also looking forward to contributing to paying tribute to Whitney by breaking an opening weekend record.

  • http://twitter.com/BrittBurt3 songbird_B70

    I know tis movie will touch me and change me forever. I am a big Whitney Houston fan and I felt it was my dupty to see her last performance. Having seen the original sparkle a few times a know that the new sparkle will b one of the best renditions of a classical movie. I am so excited to see the new sparkle because their is amazing group of raw talented actresses and actors who get to showcase what they have. That’s exciting to me. As well as the wonderful production team that helped make this movie possible. I love seeing a good movie but I feel like sparkle is more than that. It will touch many people’s lives in ways they never imagined. When I found out that the late aaliyah houghton was suppost to be played the role of sparkle I was so intrigued to find out how jordin sparks took on the role. The irony of her last name sparks and the movie’s name sparkle led my mind to believe that jordin sparks was a perfect fit for this movie. I can’t Wait to see sparkle and enter the world of music an entertainment.

    Whittney houston is a legendary singer and for her to star in a movie along side jordin sparks is remarkable. Because they both have very strong voices. Also the two bring so much heart into the movie and you feel the passion and dedicatedness. to see legends and new era music stars in this legendary movie sparkle is just remarkable and extraordinarily great and represents the new black Hollywood.

    Sparkle was a popular movie amongst my friends and I, in the 80s, as students at Howard University. We would gather together acting out the scenes and singing the songs. One of my best guy friends knew the movie from beginning to end. We were completely entertained by that film! Those are memories that will stay with us forever.

  • Jasmyn

    I loved the original Sparkle and I’m sure with the talent in this new version, Sparkle will be fantastic. I am also excited to see this Sparkle because this was the last film Whitney Houston did before she passed. She was such an amazing and gifted person and with her talent combined with the talents of Jordin Sparks, Mike Epps, Tiki Sumpter, Cee Lo, etc, Sparkle will be an amazing film.

    The first sparkle was one of the most inspiring movies of my time I have watched it a thousand times……..It seems that way anyway, I’m so excited to see what Whitney and Sparks bring to the new one. God bless you Whitney……

  • Crystelica

  • kim kissed blessing parker

    Wow this has been a long time coming. The first sparkle was and always be classic. The Icon and the voice a young ladies want to have is a star in the picture in which she worked it until she couldn’t anymore. Can’t wait to see the star studded cast bless the big screen. Whitney is in heaven smiling.

    Whitney was my inspiration when I was hopeless as an abused child. She helped me believe in myself. Jordan has an amazing voice. This cast is going to be phenomenal!

  • Samantha Reid

    I am a huge fan of Whitney and Jordin put together plus I’ve never seen a movie with Jordin in it so I think this movie is gonna be exciting. Can’t wait!

    Even before the loss of Whitney I was excited to hear about the remake. After what they did upping Dreamgirls’ game on the big screen, I figure with a powerhouse like Whitney behind it, it will HAVE to be phenom!!

  • kcoop156

    I cannot wait to see this…i have loved Whitney since i was young and have followed Jordin Sparks since American Idol…Whitney is gone but never forgotten and Jordin Sparks is stepping into a new role as a young woman actor/singer/role model.

    I normally don’t like remakes because they normally don’t do the original any justice but I hope that whitney and jordan did with this movie I don’t know because the mother wasn’t 1 of the main character in the original I also will see it just to pay homage to whitney houston

    The original Sparkle movie is a classic. The new movie has some wonderful talent. I am hoping the new movie will stand next to the original and give the cast the opportunity to show the world they can hold their own. Whitney was and is a phenomenal singer and everyone wants to see her last movie performance.

  • http://twitter.com/MsBri256 ☆Brianna Nicole☆

    I’m excited to see this film because for one, I loved the original one! And another reason is because I want to the beautiful beloved Whitney Houston shine once again! Whitney Houston was an amazing entertainer…and this film is a treat for all of her faithful fans! The last reason is because of the phenomenal cast! I love Derek Luke, Mike Epps, Cee-Lo Green and of course, Jordin Sparks! I’m sure I’m going to have to take some kleenex with me, but I’m sure I’m going to definitely enjoy this film!

  • Nichole Williams

    My favorite uncle introduced me to the original Sparkle movie and I have been hooked ever since, I was waiting for the Aaliyah Sparkle movie but….. Whitney will always be my idol so after seeing it with my uncle, we will see it again as a girls night out and then with the hubby. 3 times a charm.

  • Vanessa Pritchett

    I am excited to see the movie Sparkle because I am a huge fan of Whitney Houston and it was her last venture before her death. Also I have been watching the movie reruns of Sparkle since it first came out many years ago. I have practically worn my dvd version of Sparkle out from watching it so much. That is one of my all time favorites. Sista, Sparkle, Sticks, Satin and Levi were my favorite characters. I can recite that movie ver batim. Love love loving that you have saw fit to remake and I am truly excited to see Whitneys performance as well as the actors portrayal of these classic characters. Thank you Mara and Salim for “Sparkle” as well as “The Game”.

  • Angelique C.

    I am excited to see Sparkle because Ms. Houston wanted to remake this movie for awhile now and I truly believe that although she is no longer with us now, God was definitely in the building and I am expecting it to be a wonderful remake.

  • Valerie E

    I believe this classic film will be another vehicle to hear the voice of Whitney Houston, and all involved reminding us of that spirit voice that calls to us from within to follow our dreams and warns us of the opposing forces that try to hinder us. This movie will speak to our hearts and say if you choose light and love you can Sparkle and win!

  • blaque beauty513

  • Latricia Winbush

    Whitney was the Greatest Female artist of my era.Let her be able to sparkle one last time. She deserves one final standing ovation.. When I heard about the remake of Sparkle, it touched my soul. My son was in love with Jordan Sparks. He had the opportunity to be photographed with her in 2007 or 2008, I can’t exactly remember the year, unfortunately he is no longer with me to ask that question. My son was killed on August 13, 2008. The day after my birthday. I don’t have my son anymore, but I do have the photograph and a T shirt with him and Jordan Sparks on it. To be able to add this CD to my sons collection will mean so much.

    I saw the original Sparkle more than 100 times and can’t wait to see the long waited for remake of Sparkle. In 1976, Irene Cara, Lonette McGee, Phillip Michael Thomas, and Dorian Harewood set the screen on fire. I can’t wait to see my Whitney do her thang and the explosive duo of celebrate with Jordin Sparks.

  • rhonda

    I am so excited about the movie Sparkle because it happens to be a remake of a movie I love. In the orginal everyone fell in love with the beautiful older sister, and finally cheered on the younger sister. I have the orginal in my collection of all time favorite movies. We all remember Ms Irene Cara giving us all something we could feel with her emotion filled singing at the funeral of her beloved sister and her debute at Carnagie Hall. This movie happens to be Ms Houstons last movie and of course I am thankful she had one more chance to shine. Most people have a desire to see someone who has fallen get back up and this was her moment of turning it around and showing the world there is only one Ms Whitney Houston. I am very excited about the movie Sparkle.

  • Rea fountain

    Whitney Houston was an exceptional talent both vocally and on the silver screen. It is a privilege to watch her do her “thing”. Whether on a screen surrounded by other phenomal talents or all alone in some soul stirring ballad. Yes, I cannot to see this movie!!!

  • Audrey

    Can’t wait to see the new version of sparkle because the original version was so powerful. I am quite sure Whitney will be just as powerful as the mother. Also Jordin Sparks will bring a new flavor to this movie as did Irene Cara brought the flavor in the original version. All in all I know I will thoroughly enjoy this movie just by seeing this star studded cast. Congrats to the Akil’s and the entire cast.

    #Sparkle is the most anticipated movie this Fall. I’m excited to see #The Voice Whitney Houston; the most awarded female in history play momma “Emma” to her 3 babies in her final gift to us (fans).
    It’s my chance to say “bye” to her as she graces the BiG screen one last time.
    I know she’ll be awesome as she was in “The Bodyguard” her acting debut. Now in “Sparkle” she’ll “sparkle” as the veteran of the cast. I’m looking forward to seeing it Friday the 17th. I already have my two tickets cause I’m bringing my BFF along with me.

The quality of cast and meaning in the movie has caught my attention and I can not wait to see.

    I cam excited to see Sparkle, because I love the music! It is filled with such a talented cast, which is also another reason I want to see it. Since this was Whitney’s last work, I think that alone is why ultimate reason for being so anxious to see it. Its been a long time since I have seen her in a movie, I am glad that we have something to remember her by since she passed earlier this year.

    I am excited to see the new Sparkel movie because the two main female
    stars Jordin and Whitney are two very inspirational women. Both are
    confident give me the courage to stay on my diet and be positive every
    day. Their accomplishments in their personal lives and careers has been
    outstanding and makes me believe in myself a little more each day. The
    Akil team has a very unique and creative way of speaking to the public
    through film and are two of my role models within the writing for
    television and film industry, that I am trying to break into as well.
    The movie symbolizes “hope” and I love inspiring movies.

  • Rayne_bow

    I’m excited to see ‘sparkle’ simply because from 1994’s ‘south central’ to 2012’s ‘sparkle’ (I’m sure) I have been a fan of Mara Brock Akil’s writing. Well done and thank you.

  • musicfreak90

    I am excited to see Sparkle because music has been the one thing in my life that can put a smile on my face.Jordin SparksWhitney Houston are very talented singers. I grew up listening Whitney Houston and getting chills when I heard her sing. I have always wanted to be able to sing and have confidence like she had when she would sing. And that is what I will always remember her by. This being her last movie I know it will be great and unforgettable. Jordin Sparks and Whitney Houston are two singers who I look up to.

  • LeAndriaBryant

    I have loved Whitney like a sister since she came out. i sing and always thought that I would get the chance to sing with her…that cannot happen now. But this movie will be closure for me. I love the movie Sparkle from a long time ago, and loved the remake of the songs that Envogue did, but this one will be extra special cause my singing angel is in it.

  • Tina

    The original sparkle was just that ok! I really love me some Whitney so am very excited to see her perform in her last and final movie. Looks like this one is full of awesome cast members! !

  • SweeTee

    I can’t wait to see Sparkle this weekend. I will always LOVE Whitney Houston!!!! The movie will be a chance for the world to see her in purity and in her element. There is so much negativity surrounding her death. I think that the movie will be a testament for all to see the ‘real’ Whitney doing what she loved and did best. Whatever the reason of her death, the cause is really irrelevant, a daughter, a sister, a mother, and one of the worlds Greatest singers is gone. Nothing can take away from nor mask the impact that she had on the world. The movie will be a memorial/celebration of her life.

  • Dee

    I enjoyed the first sparkle movie and, I’m looking forward to seeing this remake with this great cast!!

  • Kris

    I wan to see this new “Sparkle” movie because it comes out on my birthday and also because when I read about he movie that was also the day that Whitney passed away.

    Im excited to see Sparkle because as a young girl growing up in Chicago
    I wanted to be an actress and wasnt sure if I should give up or follow my dreams…but I remember watching this powerful movie and thinking if Sparkle did it so can I!
    The movie helped me to go on and perform in hundreds of plays and Im still pursuing my goal today!!! Cant wait to see the updated story

  • lekedria harris

    i’m more than excited to see *Sparkle for a number of reasons!! Number one being Whitney Houston i absolutely LOVE her she’s my idol! there will never be another Whitney; being that this is her last performance on the big screen i will NOT miss out on it. Also i love music & i’ve never seen what Jordan Sparks could do as an actress. There are a lot of outstanding celebrities in this movie & im certain there will be a number of outstanding perfomances. Based on what i’ve seen in previews this is a truly inspiring movie. Everyone should always believe in themselves & folllow their dreams.

  • http://twitter.com/AlphaOmega0224 Alpha Mallory

    I am excited about seeing Sparkle AGAIN (already attended premier in Richmond, VA yesterday with my daughter and sister) but will be going back with my significant other to see it this weekend, because the original was one of my favorite movies growing up and will still watch it over and over again. This new version was awesome!!!!! Although it had a few twist, it did not take away from the greatness of the old movie. The new twist gave you something to look forward to. Alot of great talent made this remake a definite hit! I have loved Jordin Sparks since I voted for her on American Idol and she did NOT disappoint! The music was awesome and last but not least I had the opportunity to see my favorite female voice of all time in her last hoorah!!! The late great incomparable Whitney Houston will bring tears to your eyes when she sings His Eye is on The Sparrow!! Oh my God! And in closing, ;-) I will be waiting for this movie to pop up on the shelf in a few months because I will own a copy to watch over and over and over again!!

  • LaTauria88

    I am so so excited to see the movie Sparkle because I saw the first Sparkle. I know it is going to be even better the second time around with Whitney in it.

  • KIM

    Ms. Whitney Houston was my teacher and big sister! This movie is the last class for me and my teacher , The last talk we must have and in order for me to graduate and grow up it is a must!!! I too have had trials and tribulation in my life but as she over came so did I!!! Grace and faith, i am more than sure there is a lesson to be learned that’s going to carry me to the next level!!!

  • Jam

    I am so excited to see the new sparkle when it hits theaters on friday. i am a huge fan of the original movie starring Philip michael Thomas, Irene Cara, Lonette McKee, Mary Alice, Dwan Smith, and Dorian Harewood, the music spoke to your soul curtis mayfield did a great job with the music. Now this movie came out in 1976 and i wasn’t born until 1982 but this has to be one of my all time favorite movies. It opens your eyes to how kids from the ghetto can make it with hard work and dedication, there will be obstacles in the way you have to stay focused and keep your eye on the prize to achieve your dreams. this is exactly what sparkle and sticks did. Her sisters were given the same opportunities that she was but drugs took over in sisters life and Dolores realized that being in the spotlight was not for her. I know that with the awesome cast put together for the new movie, it will be just as good if not better than the original. Jordin sparks was an excellent pick for sparkle and i mean casting the Late Great Whitney Houston as sparkles mom is wonderful. I just cant wait to see this movie, i know i will see it more than once while in theaters and it will become apart of my collection when out on dvd as the original is. Another great movie to add to my collection, with great music to sing along to. I’m not the best singer in the world but when i watch these movies i get to live in my own world, and there i am the star.

    I am big fan of the orginal 1976 version starring Lonette McKee, Irene Cara and Miami Vice Phillip Michael. My mom had this movie on VHS and we watched it til it couldnt play anymore. I am huge fan because of what the movie represents family. That nothing could tear or come between sisterhood. I am excited to see how they have remake the movie all over. It is a classic that sits up there with Lady Sings the Blue and Mahogany. A true black cinema. To watch it would be a thrill along with seeing the late great Whitney Houston at her best.

    I’m excited because my Dad is excited. He introduced me to the original movie 6 months ago and had so much energy and joy when the movie played. He said, “Renee, maaaaan…when I was growing up, Sparkle was the bidnazz.” lol. He sang every song…anticipated the next scenes…and smiled as the movie rolled on. I am sure that this remake will do the same for me…and give me a reason to smile and sing…and soon share this with my children (when I have them…) :) Congratulations on this project! I know it will be great!

    This can serve as a sort of closure for Whitney fans, seeing her in all of her glory alongside the very talented Ms. sparks.  I’ll miss the her memorable voice but most of all I can’t wait to see the movie because I want to remember her as she would have wanted.  Remember her not as a woman who had made mistakes, but as an energetic, beautiful and talented musician who will never be replaced.   -Brion sims -http://tiny.cc/sjx6iw-

  • Kabrena Robinson

    II’m excited to see “Sparkle” today

  • Babyblue

    So excited to see this movie tomorrow! Grew up watching the original Sparkle and I was ecstatic to heard they were making a remake. Not to ment Whitney Houston and Jordin Sparks are in it too. I used to watch the original one on VHS all the time. It’s also great to heard remakes of the songs. Can’t wait!

  • Tania Fowler

    I am excited to see the movie because I believe the dynamic duo will be in this movie Jordin Spatks with her contemporary voice and Whitney with her oldies voice what a great combo. Whitney not only left her voice behind by listening to her on a cd but, her personality in the movie Sparkle.

  • Jenelle

    I grew up to Whitney and i love jordan sparks. They are two of my influences..when it comes to my singing. So sparkle will definietly be one of my fave movie. <3

  • LeWanda Greene

    I’m excited about seeing Sparkle 2012 for a number of reasons.. Besides the fact that the movie is starring some of my all time fave celebrities, I also want to see how it holds up to the Sparkle 1971. We all know remakes can be not so good sometimes(no offense to the directors, producers and cast). I’m just saying the origanal (1971) was a very good flick.

  • Jeckyllite

    Just to see Whitney doing her thing would be awesome….

  • Chiquintarussell

    I’m so excited because this would be Whitney’s last performance & for me to remember how beautiful & humble she was when acting

  • JeTaun Irons

    I watched an HBO movie prep for the movie Sparkle last night an it got me excited to go out and see the movie. The cast of chacters including Whitney Houston and the soundtrack are enough to pay the high cost of the movie tickets. I think that this movie will be the black blockbuster of the decade. I saw the orginal movie years ago and I an now looking for it to compare.

  • http://twitter.com/candacenellis Candace N. Ellis

    Watching the previews made me cry. Whitney was and will always be in my heart. Amazing creators and cast!!!

  • Lewisrenelsa

    I would live to see the movie Sparkle because there is so much talent in the movie and I’m sure that the soundtrack is amazing!

  • D L Carey

    I am excited to see this movie, as I was the original years ago. In the original it reflected kids in the hood, on how dreams are dreams and meant to be brought to life. It shows us how no journey of worth comes without adversity and yes, how one can get lost in the journey never to be found again. But when faith is tested and not given up on, couquerers are revealed. As I anticipate my date night to this movie with hubby, I am excited in knowing that not only are the stars of THIS Sparkle playing a role, some of them actually lived the role in the real. That makes this movie re-make extra special to me. Great job!

  • QuanikaJ

    i am very excited to see the movie ! the legendary and unforgettable whitney houston will be in and so will jordin sparks with their beautiful voices, i know this will be entertaining and heartfelt !

    Im excited to see the new movie Sparkle because it has my two idols Jordin Sparks and Whitney Houston. It was always my dream to meet Whitney Houston but it never happened. Seeing her in her last movie would be absolutely amazing! R.I.P Whitney. This must be such an inspiring and emotional movie but I just cant wait to see it ! Im a huge fan of them both , Im so excited to see this movie!

    • Mgraves221984

      I have been excited to see Sparkle since when they first announced through fb that she was doing the remake of this movie and my heart broke into a thousand pieces when I found out that Whitney had passed and it broke even more when I realized that she wouldn’t even be around to witness her finished product, which as always will be amazing. I never got a chance to see her live and concert. Sadly, I will never get the chance so this movie is like my concert. And I will cherish this movie and make it a part of my Whitney collection once they release it on dvd to put along side all of her albums and movies. This is her legacy to me and so many other fans, friends and family and I can’t wait to see the magic that is sure to be captured in the movie sparkle. Whitney Houston fan for life. RIP and soar with the angels u are

    I am extremely excited to see the movie Sparkle. Music is a big part of who I am. To see artists such as Whitney Houston, Cee-Lo, and Jordin Sparks make a movie together is joy to my ears. Whitney will truly be missed. Not to mention Mike Epps is a hilarious actor. He could make me laugh till my stomach hurts. This movie also adds to the great and talent black people of america. Proving, that race is not a big deal. We are all God’s children unique in our own way. No one is greater or better than each other.

  • Msmilkyway007

    Looking forward to seeing this movie. It will great to see Whitney in such a great role. Jordan is such a talented person.

  • Watersmilagros

    Whitney did excellent with the body guard and this movie will be a classic because this is the last movie she did before she passed. Jordan sparks has an amazing voice and this is a movie my daughter miracle and I will enjoy as a favorite as we do with the body guard

  • Iris Bennett

    The first Sparkle movie was a very touching and realistic story line that matched a very dear friend of mine. I guess it would be a chance to compare the two movies while remembering a friend whom I miss. We sang together in Junior High School, her death through violence put an end to our dream of singing together.

  • Msdsweet38

    I want to see Sparkle because I am a fan, of the original, nd the remake has amazing actors, nd the wonderful Whitbey Houston. Im so excited to see this Classic, nd will support the movie by going to see it, nd buying the movie when its available. Thanks for remaking one of my fabirite black movie’s ever :)

  • Miesha Ray

    Im so excited to see the movie Sparkle because I’ve seen the original Sparkle and I just know the remake will be even more amazing! There’s a good line up of cast members that are wonderful actors and actresses that will just blow me away in this film! This movie teaches you to follow your dreams and aspirations in life and set good examples to others. There are also good roll models in this film to guide others along the way so I know this movie is the number 1 choice for me! (super excited)!

  • Jasminedh2010

    When I first saw the previews for Sparkle, I was itching to see this one. But when I saw Whitney…I instantly knew it was a MUST see. To see Whitney immortalized not only thru music, but for her beautiful role. I know all the actors worked so hard for this movie, and the soundtrack. My grandma hasn’t went to a movie since 1997. But for this film, for the first time, she wants to go! I can not wait until I get off work so we can go!

  • http://twitter.com/LeslieDanyelle ✋Leslie

    I’m especially excited for this film because of the late Whitney Houston. I feel this would be a really great way to give my final respects and to help support Bobbi Kristina. Also because, Jordin Sparks looks better than ever and this is also a more serious role that Mike Epps gets to play. 

  • Reginald Jordan

    I’ve been waiting for this movie forever. Whitney has needed a comeback film and it is so sad that she had to leave before her time. 

  • Acf_105

    I was so excited to see the movie I went to midnight screening even though I had to work at 5 am. When I originally heard about remake being done, I was excited. Furthermore, I haven’t missed a Whitney Houston movie yet and won’t start now. Great movie!!! It was worth the lack of sleep.

  • Carolynswaf Dixon

  • Cherita Thomas Cail

    I’m sooo excited to see Sparkle. I love the orginal so I know I will LOVE the remake. Plus Whitney Houston and Jordin Sparks are just absolutely, positively amazing!!! And Ms. Tika…. I love her as an actress. I grew up watching Sparkle over and over with my big sister and mom. We used play Sparkle so much on VHS that when u got older I had to buy the DVD. Sparkle is an awesome movie. I can’t wait to be able to go to the movies next week to see the New Sparkle!!!!

  • Lna

    I loved the original version of Sparkle & deeply respect the new version.  Our people are a beautiful race of people and this movie portrays that as well as the talent and tenacity we need to achieve our successes in life. Beauty is vain, talent is golden  and everyone cast dmonstrates both beauty & talent.

  • 123Uptown

    There has never been a movie that Whitney has starred in that I have not felt better after seeing it. I know Sparkle will be no different. Excited to feel good again !!!

  • Tb41285

    I’m excited to see the new Sparkle because I grew up on the old one, and I’m interested in seeing how they changed the role of the mother for Whitney Houston amongst other changes and things that remained the same…plus I heard Jordin Sparks was AWESOME in the movie!

WHITNEY WHAT AN GREAT MEMORY YOU LEFT US WITH YOU WILL LIVE ON IN OUR HEARST AND SONGS……

  • Vwilliams51

    I was touch by this movie it took me to mother and daughter relationships and how moms try to be strict with there daughter to keep them from making the same mistakes they made. It touched my heart and soul also Whitney was singing her last song to the Lord …..

  • Dendix6134

    OMG!!! Y am I so excited to see this movie?? One reason is this will be the last time the world gets to see Whitney Houston in such a positive and beautiful light. She deserves to be remember for the good that’s in her and not just the BS that surrounded her at her death. Another reason is all the Black talent that will be showcased in this movie is just AWESOME!!! I’m a big fan of Akil production!!! They inspire me as a black woman that being Black and Beautiful is a must in our black culture and to succeed is not a luxury but a necessity. Sparkle has a message not just for me but for my beautiful 17 year old daughter as well, not to loose yourself in this culture of worldly thing. Aspire for what you want,but never compromise your values for material gain. Can’t wait Can’t wait!!!

  • Regina Jones

    Love Whitney Houston, I know she’s up there with my boys wit a big smile.

  • Karen_m2002

    I am so ready to watch this movie. Not only does it pay hommage to Whitney Houston, it also celebrates Black cinematography and the amazing talent of so many. I salute everyone who made this movie possible for the world to enjoy!

  • http://www.facebook.com/yonitamiko.coope Yoni Tamiko Coope

    Whitney Houston was a Queen in her own right, who was taken too soon.  To be able to see her immortalized in her final movie is breathtaking.  She touched everybody that knew her, didn’t know her, and who wanted to know her.  She loved the world with her music and special gifts she was blessed with, it obviously going to be a movie to stand the test of time and also to showcase who Whitney really was.  And Jordin Sparks is too blessed to have the same love and mentorship that other young ladies, (Bobby Kris, Monica, etc) have been able to recieve via Whitney Houston and her light. 
     

  • China

    I don’t know if I’m excited to see Sparkle or not. Let me just say, Sparkle is in my top 3 favorite movies. The original is so good, I hate they remade it but I am gonna support Whitney. I’m also afraid that the writers changed the script so much that I am gonna leave the theatre upset. I’m headed to see it tonight so we…shall…see…

  • Dimisgirl3

    20 yrs ago i saw her in her 1st film..i knew then acting was my destiny. Today i saw her in her final film. I cried, laughed and sung along w/the movie. Everything was great and will see it again. RIP Ms. Houston, i blessed to do what i love w/dedication to her.

  • Bossyshasta

    I have always been a fan of Whitney Houston. I watched the original Sparkle and my babies have watched it also. I cant wait to see her last performance and see what her final legacy left behind. I’m hoping not to cry but I will embrace my emotions. As a child I was told I look like Whitney, I think her death was a wake up call to us all. RIP

    Im excited to see Sparkle because Im honored to see the legendary Whitney Houston’s last project. She excelled as a singer and actor. I am also very excited to see Jordin Sparks.

  • MARLENE

    I’ve been watching the movie SPARKLE since I was 6 years old and I’m now 37.  I have seen the move starring Irene Cara and Philip Michael Thomas more than literally 100 times.  I know just about every line in the movie and til this day, if anyone says they never watched it I feel like ‘what happened to their childhood?”  Like who didn’t see SPARKLE? lol.    I loved and still love this movie and now that it has been recreated I am super excited to see some of my favorite Artists like of course Whitney Houston and my girl from American Idol Jordin Sparks make it do what it do.  I wonder who is playing my girl Sister.  Her part until this day still effects me every time I watch the movie.  I can’t wait to see Jordin Sparks play Sparkle and whoevers playing Stix .  I know Jordin  is going to make me cry every time I hear her sing.  And with Whitney playing Ms. Effie, wow.  I know it will be on and poppin.  I am truly, truly excited!!!!!!!!!

  • Vporter

    I was one of the first to see SPARKLE today and will probably see it again. I am excited because it has been one of my favorites since childhood. The movie is where I discovered Irene, Lonnette, and Philip Michael Thomas. Whitney was amazing in the current movie. And I discovered the talents of Jordin Sparks.
