A superstar singer and her overworked personal assistant are presented with a choice that could alter the course of their respective careers.
"...a glossy, enjoyable, not at all believable show business fairy tale starring two show business princesses: Tracee Ellis Ross (daughter of Diana Ross) and Dakota Johnson (daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson)."--Boston Globe
"Tracee Ellis Ross and a supremely entertaining story...she powerfully belts out six new songs while playing a beloved pop singer determined to stay cool."--Chicago Sun-Times
"Ross is never less than compelling... Johnson is always easy to watch; Harrison is a dynamic presence, and as for Ice Cube, his low-key comedy is a delight, especially when he's thinking about his weight and waxing dismissively about Pilates and salads."--Associated Press

Not a really good movie. I found myself getting bored really quickly and then it turned into the movie playing as background noise while I did other things to past the time.

I will say one positive thing: Dakota Johnson is a real delight to watch on the screen, I look forward to the day when she gets an excellent script that shows her true ability as an actress.

Dakota Johnson (immensely appealing) plays the long-suffering personal assistant of an imperious music superstar ("Blackish" star Tracee Ellis Ross) in director Nisha ("Late Night") Ganatra's entertaining L.A. fairy tale. Johnson's dreams of becoming a record producer catch fire after she meets an aspiring young singer (brilliant chameleon Kelvin Harrison Jr. from "Waves" and "Luce"), much to the chagrin of her boss and the diva-from-hell's equally irascible manager (Ice Cube). Because this is a feel-good, wish-fulfillment sort of movie with precious few rough edges, a happy ending is essentially preordained. But getting there is immensely pleasurable, with some terrific new music--beautifully performed by Harrison Jr. and Ellis Ross--along the way. I know that it's still early-ish in a most unusual movie year (to say the least), but Ellis Ross deserves to be an Oscar front-runner for Best Supporting Actress. She's fantastic.
