* MoodWhiplash: An in-universe example. In a diner, Ike forces Tina to eat some cake, not too bad considering his character. But Tina refuses, saying it's too early (Breakfast time) but Ike insists, eventually smashing the cake against her face, then Tina, in response, splashes her drink on him, so he smacks her a few times. Then her sister defends Tina, which makes Ike lash out at ''her'' then at the other citizens in the diner for not "minding your damn business." Then, as if nothing ever happened there, he exclaims "Dayum, this cake good!" [[{{Narm}} That last line from Ike just makes the scene so outrageously over-the-top that it's hard not to laugh.]]

Ike gets up, seemingly to beat Tina, but her sister defends Tina, which makes Ike lash out at stands up as well, and bears the brunt of Ike's violent rage, as he calls ''her'' then at out in front of the other citizens customers in the diner for not "minding your damn business." Then, as if nothing ever happened there, he exclaims "Dayum, this cake good!" good!", again offering some to Tina.

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: A lot of events depicted in this movie were historically inaccurate. One such example was calling "Private Dancer" her first solo album; it was her fifth. The Other Wiki has a whole list dedicated to some of the inaccuracies.

You've also got "Proud Mary" first being performed in 1968, a year before Music/CreedenceClearwaterRevival made it a hit as ''their'' original recording. And Tina's 1968 suicide attempt (by downing sleeping pills before a show) taking place in the early '70s.

* HistoricalVillainUpgrade: Ike Turner's violent streak is exaggerated into the levels of a borderline thriller villain for the movie. The film adds fictional scenes of him raping Tina and later threatening her at gunpoint (calling into question why [[KarmaHoudini he was never charged]]). Expectedly, this film was largely responsible for destroying the real Ike Turner's career.

The film features both great renditions of Tina Turner's song and "gut-wrenching scenes of domestic violence". The reviews were mostly positive and the film is still well-regarded. RottenTomatoes gives it a positive ranking of 97%. It was a modest box office hit, earning about 39 million dollars in US markets and more than covering its small budget. Fishburne and Bassett were nominated for Oscars as Best Leading Actor and Actress, [[CaptainObvious respectively,]] but lost.

* MeanCharacterNiceActor: According to LaurenceFishburne, it took a few years for women to stop giving him the evil eye after playing Ike.

* TheDogBitesBack: After years of abuse and domination by Ike, Tina finally snaps and gives him a nasty beating of his own in a violent dispute in a limo. He still tries to give orders afterwards, but a DeathGlare from Tina leads him to back off, signing his gradual loss of dominance over her.
