Critic Reviews for The Bobby Brown Story: Miniseries

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

One thing is for sure, this is definitely Bobby's narrative. For me, Part 1 felt as though you were supposed to walk away knowing that while tragedy has surrounded him, Bobby, continued to push himself to be the best.

For the subjects involved, the self-produced biopic is a kind of unobstructed release of their side of the truth... For the viewer, it's a nostalgic, intimate (and debatable) encyclopedia that gives us both tough and light moments.

If you, like me, are a sucker for schlocky TV biopics because you'll never get around to reading the celebrity memoir, this will be a veritable candy store.

The Bobby Brown Story reveals a compelling miniseries filled with the sort of controversy, nostalgia and personal ups and downs that music fans and pop culture junkies find irresistible.

Despite the demands of a story filled with so much melodrama, McClain -- reunited with the key members of the New Edition creative team -- proves a solid anchor, convincingly playing Brown across a wide span of years.
