Why Do Fools Fall in Love
|Warner Bros.; R; 112 minutes|
|Cast:||Halle Berry, Vivica A. Fox, Lela Rochon, Larenz Tate, Little Richard, Pamela Reed and Paul Mazursky|
The fools of the title are certainly not the three leading ladies (Berry, Fox and Rochon), the former Mrs. Frankie Lymons who are battling it out over the singer/songwriter's music royalties. Dazzling performances and fully realized characters lift this from daytime-talk sleaze to a truly entertaining biopic of the former heartthrob whose promising career was cut short by heroin addiction.
