Beyonce is superb and owns this movie from start to finish! Not since Diana Ross soared in LADY SINGS THE BLUES has a pop diva so owned the motion picture screen! Four stars, baby!
This movie was AMAZING! I enjoyed every second. If you haven`t seen it go and see it. Jennifer Hudson will blow you away! A warning, if you don`t like musicals or soul then honestly this movie probably won`t be for you. since I like them both I loved it.
I`d say it was just a little above average... The acting and singing was good, but I thought the plot got a little bit draggy near the middle... some parts were a bit unnecessary. The music was really catchy though. =) Overall, not bad, but I`d advise you to see this in theatres only if you`re a hardcore musical fan. Otherwise, rent it so you can fast forward through some of the more trivial parts.
It was a long movie but it was amazing. It was worth every second of every minute! I loved it I reccommend it to all ages except for little kids they wouldn`t understand it. But teens and all adults will. Its just an all around feel good movie.
I loved it. Music was exceptinal. Singing superb!
I LOVED IT!!! People who didn`t like it just don`t like musicals!
Music great, movie too long.
I loved it - laughed, cried, the singing was sensational, the actors had me there with them. Brenda - Barrie, Ontario

Amazing performances by both Jennifer Hudson and Beyonce. Great music and costumes. If you have not seen it yet, GO SEE IT!
awesome movie, great music, a "must see movie"
one of the greatest musicals that i`ve ever seen! jennifer hudson has ONE POWERFUL VOICE! her singing sent shivers down my spine! amazing movie!
Fantastic. Jennifer hudson deserves the OSCAR. Without a doubt the best movie of the year. It was such a joy to watch
This movie was amazing.... and Jennifer Hudson blew me as well as everyone else in the theatre away... She has a powerful voice. I truly wasn`t expecting to like her as much as i did. Everyone should definetly take the time to see this one, while it is still in theatres.
For all the people complaining that there was too much singing, or they broke into song too often, please, shutup. This is a musical. I don`t know what you were expecting, but thats what they do in musicals. They sing, not only songs but dialogue too. So maybe next time don`t go see a musical if you hate it that much. Now, for my review. This movie was amazing. It was so glamourous, with the makeup and costumes but behind all of that was a great story and some amazing talent. Everyone is saying this, but it has to be repeated--Jennifer Hudson was amazing. She stole the show. I saw her on American Idol, and never knew she would be capable of
bURN BABBY BURN THIS MOVIE IS HOT
JENNIFER HUDSON I LOVE YOU!! UR SO AMAZING!!!, THIS MOVIE WAS THE BOMB!! IF U HAVENT SEEN THIS ITS A MUST SEE!! n U SHOULD GO OUT N WATCH IT NOW!! CAUSE U DUNNO WUTCHUR MISSIN =) =)
I normally enjoy musicals, but the songs in this one were far too long and came far too often. This slowed the plot to a crawl. And just as soon as some interesting dialouge got going, somebody would break into song and slow the plot down, yet again. A lot of the scences seemed totally unnecessary. If the movie was tightened up, it would have been far more enjoyable. Near the end I was actually hoping nobody else would break into song as I`d had enough. Jennifer H. was good, but her cathartic song mid-movie was waaaaaaaaay tooooooo looooooong. Postives were the costumes, wigs and makeup...very cool.
Well with so much hype, its easy for a movie to fail your expectation.... BUT THIS ONE DID NOT!! now I have probably seen every movie musical ever produced, and this one is at the top of my list. It is even better the second time, and cannot wait for the third and fouth times I see it! Jennifer Hudson, not enough can be sai about you....AMAZING!! everyone else was amazing as well, not one member brought the cast down.... WAY TO GO!!!!
WOULD RATE IT HALF A STAR BUT UNFORTUNATELY THAT`S NOT AN OPTION
Beyonce is so fabulous!!! Well packaged!! Jennifer Hudson has a lot of potential to be a star but she needs a makeover!Maybe that`s the reason why she did not get the title of "American Idol"! She needs a very good agent and a stylist and she will be a "STAR"!!!!
I just finished watching the movie and I was blown away. The entire cast did a superb job but there was one that clearly shined above all the rest: Jennifer Hudson. I loved her as a contestant on American Idol, but would never imagined that she could accomplish what she did in this role. I see many acclaims continuing to come her way including an Oscar. There aren`t many performances that will evoke applause twice from an audience watching a movie but Jennifer`s was certainly one.
Jennifer Hudson is an unbelievable talent and should be an Oscar contender. Her voice is so powerful she has a HUGE career ahead! Excellent movie!
So amazing! I was blown away! Everyone was soo amazing especially Jennifer Hudson; she sent chills down my spine. Defintely going get some Golden Globes AND Oscars. It was incredible! 5/5
I would of been really good if it weren`t for the one chick who basically screamed her lungs out for the entire movie. Everyone else was great, I enjoyed it, but by the end, I couldn`t stand the one girl. Everyone in the theatre cringed when she opened her mouth. Kinda wrecked the movie in a huge way.
Jennifer Hudson definitely stole the show ... Beyonce who?
great movie best I have seen this year
By far dreamgirls was one of the most amazing movie of 2006 Jennfier Hustons knotted it outta the park.
Great movie overall. It is a musical, but it doesn`t have the feeling of one. The scenes keep moving at a good pace, for the most part. Exception would be the one that most people feel is the climax of the movie, where Jennifer Hudson wails on and on for what seems like 20 minutes. The girl has got pipes, but boy this scene was more like nails on a chalkboard!
Saw the movie last night and was blown away. I had heard that Jennifer Hudson gave an exceptional performace however she gave MANY...dont understand why Beyonce was nominated for best actress, when it is clear that the movies does NOT revolve around her....I guess its Hollywood politics.....
move over Beyonce, Jennifer Hudson stole the show! Great movie!
Jennifer Hudson made this movie. Her portrayal of a woman who was deceived and eliminated because she wasn`t a `model` woman was letter perfect. They made the point that looks, not talent is the deciding factor in who becomes a star. The music was good, the acting fine, but it was the plot line that interested me. This movie has lots to say, even if you strip it of the flash.
Very enjoyable. Everyone is talking about how great Jennifer Hudson is, which she was. Beyonce was also incredible. Jamie Fox can do absolutely anything.
this movie is pretty good. didnt expect it to be but it is
Miss Knowles shines and DREAMGIRLS glitters with glamour and style!
I am not a huge fan of musicals, but with all the hype about this movie, I figured i had to see it. And all I can say is WOW!!! Jennifer Hudson, deserves any award that she is put up for. As for Beyonce, it is her best performance yet. The movie is extremely entertaining. I literally got chills and the hairs on my arms stood up every time Hudson sang. Definitely Oscar contending in my books. GO AND SEE IT!!!
Suprisingly, I thought that Jennifer Hudson was better than Beyonce...
It was simply an amazing movie!!!!!A must see for sure!!!Jennifer Hudson was GREAT!!! Everyone applaude in the theatre after her song, I`ve never seen that before!!!beyonce was o.k., Eddie murphy also gave a wonderful performance. Go see that movie!! you won`t regret it!!
I think this movie was fantastic. The music is incredible and Jennifer Hudson was awesome!
I waited for months to see this movie, and I had to drive 21/2 hours to go and see it and the wait was worth it! You have to understand this life of music to appreciate the outstanding performances of all the actors in this movie ... back then ... that was how it was. Oscar performances ... bravo hollywood!! 10, 10, 10
I just saw it tonight and it was great!!! we had a full house!!! my heart was beating fast during "IT`S ALL OVER" and even faster at "AND I AM TELLING YOU"...and Hudson got an applause after that number too!!! IT WAS AMAZING...the film was very active and the audience participation was in...it was nice. There are sooo many songs in the film...one after the other...it was good..."MOVE", "DREAMGIRLS", "FAMILY (REPRISE)", "LISTEN" and "HARD TO SAY GOODBYE" were great numbers...i want to see it again. 4/5
I did not expect to love this movie!! Excellent, a must see!!
I am not a bit fan of musicals, but I did enjoy this one....a good solid 7 out of ten. Both Jennifer Hudson and Eddie Murphy very solid. Like a lot of movies though, it`s too long.
Excellent!!! Jennifer Hudson was just amazing.
I voted for "DREAMGIRLS" for the reason, Eddie Murphy is in it, he is one of my favourite actors/comedians. I liked his song from the 80`s, "Party All The Time", he amazed me to know that he could sing. This movie really tops it off. He could really sing good, the movie is funny, it`s fun and the ladies are very beautiful. Overall, the movie is colorful and musical the ladies sing wonderful.
