So should we expect another juke box movie with enough inaccuracies to make it a work of fiction like Bohemian Rhapsody?

The answer is yes.

The answer is yes.

Yeah, but in the case of Whitney Houston that wouldn't matter much, since people are far more interested in her personal life than they are in any supposed musical contribution she might (allegedly) have made.

If you want to hear I Will Always Love You sung properly, not just bellowed like Whitney did it, listen to the way the song's writer, Dolly Parton, sings it. Dolly - now there's a woman whose life story movie I'd pay to watch.

The problem with biopic movies is the story always has to be massaged to give the story an arc with a climax toward the end. If you really want a flavor of someone's life, I think a good biography is a better bet.

One thing I heard is that Whitney introduced drugs to Bobby Brown and not vice versa. Bobby got dragged in the mud for how Whitney became unfortunately.

I wonder if the movie will climaxe with her drug ladened suicide.

The Whitney I liked was the one who wanted to "be my baby tonight".

Recently a 'best friend' of Whitney's has put out a garbage book about 'I was her lesbian lover before she got famous'. I hope if these producers really have to make a jukebox movie about her life it doesn't include trash money-grabbing allegations like that.
