Dreamgirls | ★★★★★★★★★

I saw this movie last night and thought it was one of the best movies I have seen in a while. It is a rags to riches story with a thoughtful storyline, strong acting, great music/songs, knock-yours-socks-off singing, pretty clean language (one or two out of character f-bombs) and no violence or nudity. The Dreams (singing group) reminded me a lot of the Supremes and Beyonce's character a lot like Diana Ross.

Eddie Murphy was surprisingly great as an R&B singer trying make the transition to R&R. But I have to say that onetime (2004) American Idol hopeful Jennifer Hudson stole the show with off-the-charts vocals and amazing acting - sure to get her a nod at Oscar time.

I recommend taking your sweetie to this one on date night.

On a scale of 10 I give this movie ★★★★★★★★★


  1. My wife wants to see it, and now you're saying it's actually good. Man! I was looking for excuses to go see Rocky instead!!! :-)

  2. Rocky was the alternative but the time was better for Dreamgirls ... but I don't know if a manly man like mtr would like it as much as the Rockster :)

  3. Oh good! I am wanting to see this one and am glad you enjoyed it so much. That's a good sign.

  4. Yes, I took a stab the other week and went with hubby to see this one. Wow, it was great. We enjoyed it so much. Pretty decent for Hollywood, too. Outstanding singing. I'd see it again.
