When Jimmy was singing "Fake My Way to the Top" to the Dreamettes, did you notice the man in the purple suit, i think it was, that took Jimmy's place at the piano? I don't know if it was just me, but he looks MUCH like Marvin Gaye!
HE SURE DID!!! I was like when I saw that! I was talking about the movie and how Jimmy was much like Marvin, and someone said that it reminded them of how Marvin and Mickey Stevenson was helping Martha & the Vandellas with "Dancing in the Street". But Jimmy was also playing like Marvin at the piano. Remember that '60s photo of Marvin singing while playing the piano, he reminded me of that picture, lol.

Yes, I saw that!! I think that's the most funny part about the movie for me ... I wonder if they did that on purpose to see if people would recognize him. As soon as I saw him, I just knew there was something fishy with all these inside jokes ...

Yes, indeed! I think, nonetheless, people should just enjoy it for what it is. Comparing it to Motown will, of course, make it less enjoyable, cuz ur trying to find things that aren't necessarily supposed to be there. But anyways, aside from the Motown referrences, that movie did its own thang!
