      Audience Member One of the worse biopics I’ve seen. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 12/14/18 Full Review Audience Member This was the worst. And total lies about Bobby Brown. He had serious issues and drug problems way before he met Whitney. Terribly done. I'm embarrassed for everyone that had anything to do with this farce. Poor Bobbi Kristina had to deal with this before she got murdered. I do hope someday someone will do justice to this great talent. Hot mess all the way. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member A good directorial effort by Angela Basset Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Sad story, quite well acted, but if this is true, Whitney was a very damaged person Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Koga akter/ka ke se obide da rezira, ili ispaga epten dobro ili mnogu losho, nema sredina. Ovojpat Angela Bassett se obidela da go otslika zivotot na Whitney Houston i nejzinata vrska so Bobby Brown, no rezultatot e katastrofa. Prvo, izborot na glavnata akterka e propust. Vtoro, vo filmov ima nepotrebni sceni so celi pesni. Treto, nema nisto specificno po koe ke se pamti filmov. Ili pak zivotot na Whitney bil tolku dosaden, sto nemalo sto da se prikaze. Kako i da e, koga ke go izgledate filmov, sfakate kolku Whitney si go zeznala zivotot i taa i samo taa e vinovna za toa... Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Pretty good movie. I really think if everyone was on board with this, as far as the production, we would get more content and it would have been spectacular. But I like it.

      Linda Holmes NPR In the end, you really are better off with the YouTube videos. Jan 20, 2015 Full Review Joshua Alston AV Club While the wisdom of Whitney's premise is debatable, Bassett's execution is confident and thoughtful. Rated: B- Jan 20, 2015 Full Review Matt Zoller Seitz New York Magazine/Vulture There's something pure and insightful about how [Angela] Bassett's camera looks at this couple as they flirt, rut, marry, fight, talk about their careers, and experience wild ups and downs, including moments of professional resentment or jealousy. Jan 20, 2015 Full Review Mekeisha Madden Toby Essence Either change the name of the movie to Whitney and Bobby or give viewers more than a few hits, wigs and giggles. Give us more Whitney Houston. Aug 8, 2018 Full Review Michael Arceneaux Complex The movie isn't terrible, but it's not especially good either. If the goal was to give Bobby's side of events: flawless victory. Mar 29, 2018 Full Review Kevin Fallon The Daily Beast Lifetime's Whitney Houston biopic was confusingly bland, and we're not happy about it. Sep 21, 2017 Full Review Read all reviews
