Aside from Alexandra Shipp, who bears some physical resemblance to Aaliyah, most of the cast look nothing like the people they were meant to portray.
For instance is the casting of Chattrisse Dolabaille as Missy Elliott and Izaak Smith as Timbaland. Chattrisse have been criticized to be too thin to play the then-full-figured Missy Elliott.
Timbaland took to his Instagram account to air his thoughts on the Biopic with a video
"A lotta people keep asking me if I'm watching that, Evidently not. No way. Not Timbo."
"This is why people should never remake movies. Now you have to deal with the consequences," Timbaland said in different videos.
- Aaliyah’s Family are against the movie.
According to Aaliyah’s uncle and former manager Barry Hankerson, he doesn’t think Aaliyah’s story should be told on the small screen. The disapproval of the biopic by Aaliyah's family, brought lots of negativity prior it's premiere.
Without her family’s approval, Lifetime weren’t able to obtain music rights for use in the movie, and this happens to be one of the greatest loss of the movie as Aaliyah’s music is hardly in the movie.
- Aaliyah's Death
The biopic doesn’t address Aaliyah’s death. Probably out of respect, the producers ignored the 2001 plane crash that took the singers life at the age of 22. But then, they could have been scenes on what Hollywood thought of her demise.
- Aaliyah's Movie Career
The Biopic pays little or no attention to Aaliyah's career as an actress.
