I advise you to see this movie if you enjoy music and biographical movies. But because the film deals with sensitive topics (like addiction), it can be unpleasant for certain viewers. The movie has a “PG-13” rating and is exactly 146 minutes long! It’s helpful to be aware of this information if you tend to fall asleep during long movies 🙂
“I Wanna Dance With Somebody” is out in the US on 23 December and 26 December in the UK and Australia! The film is also on the screens in Türkiye today! You can check the blog and get detailed information about the movie theaters in Istanbul to decide where to watch!
