Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Whitney, a TV movie about R&B singer Whitney Houston's early relationship with Bobby Brown, contains mature themes including alcohol and drug addiction (marijuana, cocaine use visible) and some sexual situations (including brief partial nudity). A bloody shooting is shown; the language is pretty mild ("hell"). Fans of the late singer may be interested, but it's not geared toward young audiences.

Sexual Content

Provocative dancing and risqué bedroom scenes include people in skimpy underwear; brief nudity (partial buttocks).


A bloody, fatal shooting is shown.



Social Behavior

It's a dramatized interpretation of the ultra successful but deeply troubled Houston's life. The exploitative nature of the business also is underscored.


Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown's music is featured.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Lots of drinking; cigarette smoking. Alcoholism and drug addiction are major themes; pot and cocaine frequently used.
