The silly editing of musical sequences with ordinary scenes. I don't wanna see that.
Unorganised and unstructured. Suddenly people are married and have hit records.
Weird way of doing certain musical sequences. Like, we see about 20 seconds of Jamie Foxx performing "Steppin' to the Bad Side" and then it goes into a montage of him gambling? WTF? Characters randomly deciding to sing songs off stage when there was no previous acknowledgment of this.
Too long. They needed to cut out a couple of songs.
That awful song about being a family, and being a tree that grows or something. That was really bad. And they kept reprising it!
Jennifer freakin' Hudson!
A bunch of about 8 musical scenes were really fantastic.
Beyonce was actually quite fine in the final act.
The costumes and the glamour and the makeup. Some of those costumes were hilarious.
Jesus, Beyonce looked so much like Diana Ross at times it was scary
Energetic and full of sass.
That shot of Beyonce during the photoshoot sequence where she was done up to have darker skin? WTF was that? Unintentional hilarity, I'm sure.
It may seem like there are more cons that pros, but the pros are pretty convincing. I think it's a B. I enjoyed it. But, yeah, that song about growing trees and families was terrible.
