Jennifer Hudson is truly amazing.  She steals the movie.  Beyonce put in a good performance, but she looks like the back-up through out the whole movie.  Eddie Murphy also puts in a fine performance.  Jamie Fox and the rest of the cast provide a strong supporting background for the movie.

If they were alive today I am quite sure that Rogers and Hammerstein, Loerner and Lowe and all the others who brought us the great American musicals of the 1940's and 1950's would stand up and cheer for "Dreamgirls".  For this is a film steeped in the tradition of those fabulous M-G-M musicals of days gone by.  Executive Producer Patricia Whitcher pushed all of the right buttons in assembling an incredibly talented ensemble that makes "Dreamgirls" …

Pros: Outstanding performance by Eddie Murphy and Jennifer Hudson.     Cons: Nothng.     The Bottom Line: Can you hear the sound of my clapping, the joyous call of my delighted whistle?     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie''s plot. There are few movies I have seen this year—and I have seen quite a few—that can measure the emotional fulfillment of Dreamgirls. The movie is after all about music, the …

Pros: Murphy     Cons: Songs can drag on a bit to long.     The Bottom Line: For Murphy alone, this film is a must see.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie''s plot. The rise of Motown records is one of the music industries greatest tales. Berry Gordy Jr. in 1959 established the record label that not only made stars of numerous talents such as Diana Ross and the Supremes and the Jackson 5, but helped African …
