    Sorry to begin with a line from Norma Desmond, but it's true that they don't make stars like Diana Ross anymore. Think of all the self-proclaimed divas that she has outlasted. She was, and remains, truly mesmerizing. Someone really ought to get her back to making movies--there are a lot of us who miss seeing her up on the big screen. This movie is a bit tedious in parts, but she never is. Couldn't agree more with a previous review that if Berry Gordy hadn't pushed so hard, we'd have probably seen the first black Best Actress Oscar winner in 1972 instead of so many years later. BTW, have you seen her live music performances recently? I saw her last summer and she's still the best live perfomer ever. Frankly, she blows the doors off Whitney, Aretha, Liza or just about anyone else with that level of maturity. long live the boss!!

    Great music, Richard Pryor and Diana Ross were superb. The music was outstanding...one of the best movie soundtracks ever!

    Although the accuracy of the film is certainly questionable, Diana Ross' performance is nothing short of mesmerizing. It's too bad Berry Gordy pushed so hard (too hard) for her to win the Oscar, beacuse it apparently turned Acadamy voters off. As good as Liza is in Cabaret, Diana's was really THE best performance of 1972. If you haven't seen the movie lately take a look. It isn't the best picture of the year, but the viewing is well worth it just to see the incomparable Miss Ross--you can't take your eyes off her.
