Did You Know?

Trivia

The closing duet "Love is All That Matters" was expected to be released as a single but has only ever appeared as a Diana Ross solo track on her album "Everyday is a New Day". See more »

Goofs

When Kayla is singing the club, Olivia walks in and Kayla covers her mouth but the voice in the song keeps going. So, obviously it was pre-recorded and she was lip-syncing. See more »

Quotes

Peggy: [before showing her a tabloid of her and Kayla] This is not gonna make your day. The good news is they got it right. The bad new is they got it all.
Olivia King: Oh, my God! Oh, God!

Not as bad as you might think
15 September 1999 | by robman-5See all my reviews

Expecting the worst I was actually pleasantly surprised at Double Platinum. Granted this won't win any Emmy's, it is a pleasant way to kill a couple of hours. Both Diana Ross and Brandy sing and act very well, and the score is excellent. There are worse ways to spend an evening.
