This is a movie, DEAMGIRLS, that's getting a huge push for an Oscar. I thought it would be a good movie to take my wife to but she didn't seem to care & kept screwing around so I went by myself last week. I hated it. Terrible. Singing was terrible & the music was nothing. The style of today is to overpower songs & just get yourseld over by showing off your range & vocal power. I hate it when actors sing dialoge. The fat chick off the TV show is probaby going to get nominated but I thought she sucked. Eddie Murphy was very watchable & everything fell apart when he wasn't on. Maybe I'm a dumb shit but I hated this movie. *1/2 Gave me a headache. --Yohe

As a fan of musicals, I enjoyed this. Acting was excellent across the board, music was great retro funk/disco. Story was solid without being too dumb. Not a great movie, but much better than some of the overhyped drivel like Apocalypto, Babel etc. Fun two hours and something legitmately different from most of the crap that gets greenlighted.
