Reviews
Sight and Sound - The greatest pleasure comes from its honesty as a musical... With great spangly extravaganzas of glam and glory, fireworks and frocks, Rolling Stone - This baby dazzles like nothing else anywhere... DREAMGIRLS is a movie that has everything: a blazing new star in Jennifer Hudson, a riveting, revitalized Eddie Murphy, a hot-lick score... and a timely story..., Total Film - Murphy delivers easily his best work to date in a role that perfectly utilises his wise-cracking persona, earthy singing voice and steadily advancing years, New York Times - When was the last time you saw a first-time film actress upstage an Oscar winner, a pop diva and a movie star of long standing? Ms. Hudson is not going anywhere. She has arrived, Entertainment Weekly - DREAMGIRLS is the rare movie musical with real rapture in it... [The editing] works in beautiful smooth tandem with the whooshing, darting camera

Contains one use of strong language and hard drug references
Additional Information
Set in 1960s Detroit, DREAMGIRLS follows the commercial and cultural struggles of the R&B recording industry, through the rise of the Dreamettes (later shortened to just the Dreams) from backup singers to headlining international superstars. The trio--Deena (Beyonce Knowles), Effie (Jennifer Hudson), and Lorrell (Anika Noni Rose)--soon discover the harsh reality behind the glamour of fame and fortune, as the group's controlling and shady manager, Curtis Taylor Jr. (Jamie Foxx), uses them to help build his musical empire and capture his dream of crossing over from R&B to the pop charts. He sacrifices Effie's immense talent as lead singer for Deena's stunning, more mainstream look to sell the sound, pushing marketable appeal over musical artisanship--and compromising the ambitions of his proteges. <BR><BR><BR><BR>Since its Broadway debut, DREAMGIRLS has been widely rumoured to be inspired by the hugely successful girl-group the Supremes, as well as some of Motown's biggest players. Knowles's Deena portrays the Diana Ross character, radiant in miraculous recreations of the hairstyles and fashions that made Ross timeless, while Foxx's Taylor exemplifies influential Motown Records founder Berry Gordy Jr. Former AMERICAN IDOL contestant Jennifer Hudson makes her feature-film debut delivering a knockout performance as the larger-than-life Effie, and Eddie Murphy is believable as the misunderstood James Brown-like character of Jimmy "Thunder" Early. Vibrant with colourful costumes and sleek backdrops, the film flows effortlessly from dialogue to musical numbers, each song capturing the richness of the talented cast and the essence of the era, endlessly soaring with fast-paced excitement and non-stop emotion.

  • Wonderful

    I already seen this on t.v. and decided to buy it. Great. Reminds me of the Diana Ross story. Very similar. Great acting and songs. I used to dance to Tamala Motown so I Love it! I would also recommend Cadilac Records. Fantastic!!! It about Chess Records and involves Etta James, Muddy Walters and Chuck Berry wow....Howling Wolf,,,, Buy it! Also the mini series about the Tempations but we cannot get int on DVD.

  • Musical DVD

    This is a good musical film which shows history and culture and the songs are great. If you like Jennifer Hudson and Beyonce's voices then you should really enjoy it.
