I'm so excited about this movie, I've been a fan of TLC since 1992. I think KeKe Palmer Lil mama and Drew Sidora is gonna go in on these roles. I'm really anticipating the true story about left eye and Andre Risen domestic incident , Cause honestly if he was laying hands on my girl like that… He's lucky that's all she did! all so the story of T Boz illness and Chilli's relationship with Dallas Austin and hopefully they'll get into at least a little of Usher and her relationship as well? TLC's life story right? Lol. TLC 4ever!


Am I the only one who thinks Keke Palmer is overrated as an actress?, havent been impressed with her since Akeelah and the Bee….


WOW!! It's like looking the original TLC, they got the videos right! Even that VH1 interview in the trailer was ON POINT. This is going to be a hit.


The trailer didn't give too much away, which is good. I liked it. I will be there to watch it :)

Hearing that Chuck Stone III is directing has made my day. Looking forward to this film.

Definitely putting the effort in, clearly. Looking forward to seeing how it turns out.


Ahhh shucks! Looks to me as if they got the TLC part down to the "9". However, what's going to make this movie great is how they portray Tionne, Lisa, & Rozonda!


Good to see Chuck Stone still doing his thing. I felt TLC.
Wonder who's playing Andre' "Bad Moon" Rison?


I can't believe it but I am jazzed to see this. It looks like the production value is really high. Can't wait to see another trailer that will have more of the plot.
