Didn't want to like it, but I LOVED it. A very moving & sensitive Tribute. I love that it ended on a positive memory & the pictures from her life at the end are nice.

I felt like it were Whitney herself acting in the movie. It is as impactful as Bohemian Rhapsody to me.

I think they did a good job, I just wished they would not have gone so deep in her drug addiction and concentrated more on the good things about her.

The movie was done very well. The actors did a great performance. It was not violent, graphic sex, or inappropriate in any way. I loved the singing.

this movie was fantastic, the singing, the clarity, the memories. I cried, sang, and reminisced. the best part is my husband usually falls asleep on our movie night, but he was up enjoying it just as much as me.

It was too long and 20 minutes of previews was way over the top, i think the cost of the movie was too high. I don’t think Atom done me any good since I lost the five dollar tmobile discount because the theater was closedon the original dsy because of a winter storm

Wish I could give it 2.5 stars, but closer to 3 than 2. A just-okay music biopic with a lead performance worth celebrating, but little else. Takes no chances. Amazing music, of course.

I was just finally happy to see a biopic about Whitney that showed her legacy as an artist instead of focusing so much on her downfall as an artist. I mean we all know she had her demons with drug use but this showed the rise and the fall, all other movies focused ONLY on the bad. As a Whitney fan, I cried several times throughout this movie bc of how pleased I was with the storyline.

I went into the movie expecting them to sugar coat Whitney’s real story, but I love her music. The movie was very good. The critics got it wrong. Keeps you engaged the entire movie.

Left me sad that such a great voice is gone. She could not live her truth as a gay woman and that may have been the base of her internal anguish.

I wanna feel the HEAT … but I don’t. On the contrary, the animatronic new Whitney Houston biopic “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” left me shivering from a gust of arctic air as it so clinically and lazily examines the tragic life of the famous singer.

The indelible, unmatched voice of Houston may live on, but I Wanna Dance with Somebody lacks the ingredients of what made Houston a force that permanently altered every person who truly heard her.

There are only clichés in this rise-and-fall material, with the sole distinctive wrinkle being the weight given to the rise versus the fall.
