Critic Reviews of "Sparkle (CD1)"Richard Roeper.comAugust 30, 2012
Sparkle shamelessly piles on the clichés, but it's an entertaining ride throughout.New YorkerAugust 27, 2012
Noteworthy only for featuring Whitney Houston's last screen appearance.ReelViewsAugust 19, 2012
Sparkle is an assembly of parts and pieces from other, better movies - an overly familiar jumble of clichés mashed together.Chicago Sun-TimesAugust 17, 2012
"Sparkle" isn't blindingly original but it delivers solid entertainment, and despite the clichés I was never for a moment bored.Globe and MailAugust 17, 2012
Anyone who has seen Dream Girls, What's Love Got To Do With It? or even The Doors will find themselves in familiar (if inferior) territory here ...Detroit NewsAugust 17, 2012
It's nice that "Sparkle" honors the memory of Motown's heyday; if only it could have lived up to those standards.Epoch TimesJune 30, 2016
With Whitney Houston gone, the baton passing becomes more than metaphorical. If you enjoy power-drama, 1960s girl-group nostalgia, and virtuoso pop singing-this is your movie.CinemixtapeApril 17, 2016
"Sparkle" has its bright spots - mostly in the middle of the film - and Epps and Ojogo shine.PajibaJuly 17, 2013
This is the second most embarrassing thing to happen to Whitney Houston this year.Big HollywoodJune 30, 2013
Wallowing in melodrama, the film's sole highlight is Whitney Houston's supporting turn in it.The National (UAE)November 07, 2012
Whitney Houston's vibrant, final performance adds poignancy to this likeable, breezy remake of a familiar tale.UTVOctober 15, 2012
it is impossible not to think of the singers real life rise and fall. Whitney Houston's face does not disguise the descent. You can see the tracks of her tears. She looks a lot older than her 48 years.
