Dream Girls

So today I watched the much raved about Dream Girls. Although frankly, I'd wanted to watch Happily n'ever After or the Holidays (still haven't watched that yet) but somehow we managed to miss them both.
Well anyway, Dream Girls was about three girls who have sang together since they were 12 trying to make it in the industry. In comes an ambitious manager Curtis (Jamie Foxx) and after much hardship they shoot off into stardom. On the way they lost themselves in their stardom and friendships started to fall apart blah blah blah. . . this is basically the gist of it, but you can read more about it in the synopsis.
Overall I thought they looked really cute, young and back in the days at the beginning when they were starting out. Their wigs are so quaint and their dances were really so upbeat and fun.Its amazing how make-up, hair and clothes can change people. As the movie proceeded one can actually tell how they've matured from the young hopeful dreamettes to the dream girls.
Throughout the play Beyonce was just amazingly gorgeous. Well except that scene when she was leaving and she had on no make-up, but thats all part of the character right?I thought her outfit when she went from her mansion to see Curtis at the office was especially striking. She looked so put together and stylish.
Jennifer Hudson also had a really great voice and sang with a lot of feeling. Unfortunately, sometimes I felt that she dragged it out a bit too long and wasn't upbeat enough. Like in the scene above when she insisted that she was staying, I kept on thinking the song was ending whenever she took a breath, but it just went on and on and on. . . .
Eddie Murphy was also in it playing the guy who indirectly gave them their big break and went on as one of the love interest of one of the girls and was one of the stars under Curtis's payroll at the end. I thought he was quite amusing and I felt really sorry for him in the end.

Overall, Dream Girls was not a bad movie, although for a musical movie, I didn't think it compared to movies like Chicago, because usually after such a show I'd be motivated to go home and listen to their soundtrack over and over again and relive the musical. But this time around, I feel no desire to do so and honestly, cannot remember any of the songs. Also, I wished it had more of a happy ending.

I must respectfully disagree with you about Jennifer Hudson. I thought her voice was perfect, and it made me not want to hear anyone else sing, besides her. When she was singing "I'm Telling You I'm Not Going", her strength of emotion stunned me. It seemed she was crying at parts, but instead of tears and screams coming out, it was music.

Wow, this movie has flown so far over my radar it is ridiculous. I think I'll buy this from my work soon, if just for Eddie Murphy in period costumes.

IMO it was a cute movie, but in no way comparable to the others. GGs are messed up

I definitely have to agree with LAMODE. I think Jennifer Hudson was perfect and her voice was just right for me. I can't seem to stop listening to the soundtrack. i think she dragged out the songs because it was written like that.

When Jennifer Holiday sang it on Broadway in the early 80s, it was the same way. I think Hudson stole the show and without her the movie would have been terrible. Jamie Foxx needs an acting coach.

Don't waste your money on Happily N'Ever After. Im all for animated movies, but this one wasn't even funny.

The Holiday, on the other hand, was really cute and i would definately recommend it.

Wow
Jennifer Hudson's vocal range and depth are incredible. SHE is the singer. She could do opera. Let's hear more of her! And such a pretty face, too.

Also I loved Freedom Writers

and also Pursuit of Happiness

See them all!
