In my opinion it is not.
I am terrible at writing reviews, so I am just going to copy and paste one of my posts from another place:
Unfortunately we got another terrible Whitney Houston documentary, possibly even worse than the previous ones which is quite an "accomplishment" for an Oscar winner who had Whitney's family on his side, access to the vault, an experienced team with big resources et cetera, et cetera.
The only reason why I wanted to see it was the never-before-seen footage which I also found very disappointing.
I can't say the movie itself disappointed me, but only because my expectations were very very low, and the film did not exceed them.
I definitely would not recommend it to anybody, you will not learn anything new from it, and if you do not know anything about Whitney, you will not learn anything valuable.
They had 120 minutes, and majority were spent on nonsense, assumptions, rumours, promoting people who were a part of the film, while some of Whitney albums, eras, movies, tours were not even acknowledged, not to mention many of her achievements, hit singles, impact and many other things that this so-called definitive Whitney Houston movie should have covered accurately.
If I had decided to go and see it in theater, I would have left after 20 minutes or less.
I hope people who really feel they need to see it, will not pay to do it.
