CrazySexyCool is the perfect combination of adjectives to describe TLC. Their biopic debuted on VH1 last night, and it revealed the “behind the scenes” moments that hampered, but eventually propelled the 90’s R&B/Hip-Hop African-American all girl group to unparalleled stardom. Most of the dirty laundry aired previously during a behind the music episode, but the movie’s perspective on the group’s rise is by far more entertaining.
Watching the movie informed fans of the three women’s trials and tribulations, but also brought back great
memories attached to their timeless classics. In my opinion, the biopic was well written as it wove in the group’s mega success but not without including their journey’s wrong turns. Of course there are things that could have been done better, but overall the film grabbed the audience’s attention and doesn’t let go until the ending credits roll down the screen.
Director Charles Stone, and actresses Drew Sidora (T-Boz), Lil’ Mama (Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez), and KeKe Palmer (Chilli) pulled off the impossible, as they showcased the career of one of music’s greatest talents, while paying tribute to their struggles and their record-setting singles, and albums.
