Just watched the Lifetime Aaliyah movie and I was not happy with the acting.The family and those who closely worked with Aaliyah were not involved with the production or content of this film – and should have not been made without those who truly knew Aaliyah.
The film did not feel genuine and the actors did not play the roles to full capacity. It was apparent the artists Aaliyah, R. Kelly, Dame, Timbaland and Missy were not studied by the actors. On top of that, the actors who played Timbaland & Missy couldn’t be more off – Missy at that time, was a heavy set brown skinned woman – the actress looked nothing like Missy and they put darker make-up on her instead of casting someone who looked the part.
With that said, the Aaliyah movie was a failure.
R.I.P. Baby Girl – You are missed.
