Movie Review: Dreamgirls

Posted on June 21, 2007

Dreamgirls PosterI was a tad skeptical about Dreamgirls at first because it definitely had the potential to be a very cheesy musical but I decided to give it a view anyhow. My initial skepticism wasn’t warranted. The film was very entertaining and contained top notch acting, directing and singing.

The songs definitely stole the show though. It was a lot of fun to be transported back into the Motown days and to see the dark smoky clubs give way to the brightly light extravagant stages as the girls began to move up in the world all accompanied by some incredible music.

The story was decent as well although it was a bit cookie cutter and a tad predictable.

That said, I recommend Dreamgirls for a time when you simply want to sit down and have a great time watching a movie (it’s not “heady” at all). The film is also kid friendly and has a touching “feel good” ending. Check it out if you have a chance. You won’t regret it.

    What in the hell was the Academy of Motion Pictures thinking of snubbing this movie for Best Picture, yet giving it 8 nominations? What a bunch of damn idiots? And the sad part is that the movie had enough votes to be nominated for Best Picture.
