    Synopsis


    Dreamgirls
    Director Bill Condon brings Tom Eyen's Tony award-winning Broadway musical to the big screen in a tale of dreams, stardom, and the high cost of success in the cutthroat recording industry. The time is the 1960s, and singers Effie (Jennifer Hudson), Lorrell (Anika Noni Rose), and Deena (Beyoncé Knowles) are about to find out just what it's like to have their wildest dreams come true. Discovered at a local talent show by ambitious manager Curtis Taylor Jr. (Jamie Foxx), the trio known as "the Dreamettes" is soon offered the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of opening for popular singer James "Thunder" Early (Eddie Murphy). Subsequently molded into an unstoppable hit machine by Taylor and propelled into the spotlight as "the Dreams," the girls quickly find their bid for the big time taking priority over personal friendship as Taylor edges out the ultra-talented Effie so that the more beautiful Deena can become the face of the group. Now, as the crossover act continues to dominate the airwaves, the small-town girls with big-city dreams slowly begin to realize that the true cost of fame may be higher than any of them ever anticipated. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      ONE OF THE WORST MOVIES EVER!!!

      Posted
      futuremrsbraziel

      I have to honestly say I have not seen this movie all the way through. I have tried to on exactly 7 different occasions, and my stomach literally turns because it is a horrible movie. It is a musical for starters which I flat out hate. TOO MUCH SINGING!!! They are singing 95% of the time. Even when they are fighting and mad they start wailing into a song.... YAWNNNNNN....wake me when its over....

      Greatest Musical In A Long Time

      The movie was fabulous! The performances were outstanding! Jennifer Hudson was amazing! I love her Effie White character. The only downside to the movie was Beyonce's less than mediocre acting skills. Although Eddie Murphy performance was excellent, he is not the best singer but he was still great in the movie. Overall, the movie is a must-see for musical lovers!!

      If you are a fan of musicals, than you already have this movie, but for those of you that aren't, this is still a great movie. Let go of the fact that its a musical, and enjoy Eddie Murphy's return, Jamie Foxx standing tall, Beyonce playing well Beyonce (not a big stretch), and Jennifer Hudson making a breakout performance. You will cry, laugh and give a standing ovation, even at home.

      The musical numbers sung by Jennifer Hudson, Beyonce and Anika Noni Rose were so memorable. Ms. Hudson did such an excellent first time acting job, for which she deservedly won best supporting actress. Highly recommend to anyone who loves musicals.

      Greatest Musical - Great Singing!

      This is a great musical! It's not fair to downgrade the movie because you don't like musicals. This movie has a lot of singing in it but the songs are gorgeous and bold. Jennifer Hudson delivers an amazingly performance. Jamie Foxx is outstanding and Eddie Murphy is awesome. The music is powerful and adds to the already interesting plot. Beyonce - you go, girl!

      This movie is definitely a must see for people who like musicals. It is well acted and the musical numbers are well choreographed. And of course Jennifer Hudson does an amazing job and she deserves the Academy award for it. Which she did Get.

      I enjoyed the story, similar to the start of Diana Ross and the Supremes. But the movie pretends to be a musical and the characters break out into long drawn out songs that quickly start to stink like day old fish.
