Hey, Jermaine, why don't you help out the brothers? Talk to Berry. He is your father-in-law.
Look, father-in-law is one thing, group is another. Anyway. we got a winning combination. A seven-year run of hits.
Got no more hits.
We'll get it back, man. I'm not running to my father-in-law every time someone's got a complaint. You wanna talk to him, talk to him.
I wanna talk to him, but he ain't gonna wanna listen.

I like all biographies, and I really love the Jacksons, I thought Wylie Draper (the guy that played the older Michael Jackson) looked a little like the real one, I'm sorry that we lost him, he was a good actor. Jason Weaver's acting gave Wylie something to work with, and he succeeded in Alex Burrell's (Michael Jackson from age 6-9) version of Michael. I didn't know at first that Jermaine's son was playing him, he looks exactly like his dad, but I think the guy who came after Jermaine Jr. really ruined it as far as portraying Jermaine is concerned, but his "overacting" worked in some scenes like with Hazel Gordy at the airport and talking with her in the hotel room and also talking with his dad.
I like the music, that's my favorite part, I'm gonna buy this movie, it's worth it.
