Why Do Fools Fall in Love

Original Theatrical Date: August 27, 1998

When pop legend Frankie Lymon died, he left behind a string of hit records...and a string of ex-wives.

Three beautiful women visit record executive Morris Levy with one thing in mind: to claim the music royalties earned by their husband, the late, great '50s rock icon Frankie Lymon. They say good things and bad news always travel in threes: Looks like the talented, 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 play 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!
