A single must try and eliminate verbal doubts and rely on beneficial,
as you have more plus much more optimistic, your
confidence level and will will increase, valor bring
new for you to life, new miracles your, if you make courage being a
habit, life can become gold colored.
When life is glowing, then mature will become definitely insignificant.

Can someone please tell me if the actresses did all of the performance of the Waterfall video in the movie or was it a mix. I said it was entirely the actresses but my boyfriend insists it was the actual footage from the video with TLC.

I’m not sure what movie the author was watching but it was very clear this was lil mamas show. I believe the casting if all the girls was spot on, in fact eeriky so, however lil mama really stood out. Even people that find her annoying had to give her praise for this performance. Amazing movie about an amazing group. Im glad i enjoyed them growing uo befir we lost Left Eye.

I loved the movie ( it made me teary eye’d )! I was shocked with some stuff I never even knew such as Pebbles being money hungry and acting harsh towards these young ladies.. I had no clue she tried to replace Chili in the group and then had the nerve to show up at Left-Eye’s funeral :-/ What kind of chit is that? I didn’t know Chili had an abortion, held onto that cheating man Dallas Austin, who had a baby outside their relationship, then after they had a baby she finally got the nerve to leave his arsh.. WOW! I knew T-Boz was sick with Sickle-Cell Anemia its a disease my grandma died with but many years after having 12 children. R.I.P Grandma I love and miss you KISSES! ( back to this story’ I didn’t know Left-Eye was so selfish in wanting to do her own thing letting Master P brain wash to go solo and not knowing he was a married man? SHOCKER. I think it was wrong for any man to play with her feelings like that ( I honestly think Left-Eye ) was searching for a male father figure that would support and appreciate her doing her own thing ) in becoming a female rapper. She said she was tired and she finally found peace in the wild with her spirit roaming free from all troubles. R.I.P Left-Eye! I don’t view those crooked Lawyers, Pebbles, Andre Rison, Dallas Austin, or Master P the same anymore.. SMH

Actually just to correct you here, it wasn’t really Master P, but Suge Knight. I don’t know if Knight didn’t want to allow them to use his name or what for the movie, but it wasn’t Master P at all. If you check Youtube you may find the tracks Left-Eye laid down for Knight including one with Tupac Shakur.

Well done all around. I grew up to their music and this movie gave me insight into the behind the scenes aspect of their lives that most fans, including myself, were unaware of. I’m happy they shared their story with us.

I LOVED the biopic and definitely will support TLC by buying their new song “Meant to Be”. Watching it totally took me back. I was singing along with all of the songs. I think ALL of the girls did a great job acting. Keke always does her thing, but I was pleasantly surprised by Lil Mama’s portrayal of Left Eye. I had to do a double take with their “Waterfalls” reenactment because Lil Mama looked just like Left Eye right there. I LOVED the way it ended too – in the present demonstrating they are not finished with showing the world their talent. I only buy DVDs of movies that I really connect with so I definitely will buy this DVD once it’s available to purchase. Kudos to TLC & VH1 for making this movie!.

Wow. The movie was turned up, all the up. The casting was right on, the acting was spectacular and most importantly it was interesting. Was not bored for a sec. Way to go T-Boz & Chilli.

The movie was great! It made me laugh, cry, cringe and just left me wanting to know more! I’ve always been a TLC fan & always wanted to know more about them. But I love love looovvveed that song at the end “Meant to Be.” It made me teary eyed. It went so well with the movie and it was just so nice and perfect. I’m downloading it on iTunes asap!

Keke Palmer is wonderful in everything she does.Her emotions are emotional if that makes any sense. From Akeelah and the Bee to Abducted:The Carlina White Story to Joyful Noise..any movie she does is worth watching even if just to see her perform

This is one of my favorite groups. I was surprised at the girls they picked for the actors and they did a great job :) It did make me cry at the end but all in all it was a great movie and I hope it comes out on DVD :-)

All ladies did a great job but surprisingly Lil Mama ( Lisa “left eye” Lopes) was the breakout star. She channelled a person that we in Atlanta knew personally in a perfect way.

Was a great flashback with real music. The characters fit perfect with the real TLC. I never knew the whole story glad I do now.

In some scenes you had to look hard to distinguish original footage from re-creation. The ladies(all, especially Lil Mama) were spot-on. As the film advanced they became more comfortable and eased into their roles. Well-done for a TV movie; such great music and chemistry. Crocked Smile reminds you just how good TLC sounds together.

EXCEPTIONAL job to everyone that was involved with this movie! The roles felt so real. It was actually like watching TLC in the real. I can’t wait to purchase this movie. I hope there’s a sequel in the future. The stars casted throughout this movie – a PERFECT selection…AWESOME movie. TLC fan forever…
