It’s not everyday that you come across a good musical biopic. When you have an adored musical figure, it’s so easy for things to go left. But in my opinion, Why Do Fools Fall in Love, is one of the classics. Larenz Tate, who is far too underrated in Hollywood, was a force to be reckoned with. (There were times when I swore he and Frankie were one and he, Tate, was the one singing those songs.) And the leading ladies held their own as well. They brought the drama, the comedy and the emotion to make this a great film. Check out the behind the scenes secrets of how it all came together.

    You are so right about Larenz Tate being underrated in Hollywood!! He is so versatile and talented…to go so brilliantly from rough characters like O-Dogg and Anthony to romantic ones like Darius and Frankie and make them believable…amazing. He’s definitely one of my favorites.

    Most likely Toni would have had Halle’s role

    number one should have been “larenz tate did frankie lymon JUSTICE.”

    because that man was as homely as a soggy bowl of grits.

    The comments about Michael Jackson were rude and totally uncalled for – back when he was black, that was just low!

    • baddvixentype

      no, thats just the truth. When talking about micheal everyone says “black michael or white michael?” How is that a low blow when its one of the many ? marks referring to him (ect. hair, children, nose…)
      Thats not taking away from who he was as an artist.

    I loved it, I still will watch it today if it came on. I loved Vivica Fox the most out of the wives and I thought Lorenze Tate added another notch on his acting belt.
