A beautiful woman sweeps into the office of record executive Morris Levy. She's come to claim the music royalties earned by her husband, the late, great '50s rock icon Frankie Lymon. Uh-oh. Another gorgeous Mrs. Frankie Lymon is already there. Then another enters the room. They say good things and bad news always travel in threes: looks like the talented and troubled Frankie left more than his music behind. Heart, humor and three-part disharmony reign as the three wives maneuver to one-up each other and claim the estate. Halle Berry, Vivica A. Fox and Lela Rochon portray the very different women who discover they have something in common - the same husband (Larenz Tate). Gregory Nava (Selena) directs, chronicling a song-filled (over 30 soundtrack tunes) rags-to-riches-to-ruin story of Lymon through the women's relationships with him. Why Do Fools Fall In Love? For movie fans, the answer is why not!
