It is very good film and it had wonderful performances for Jennifer Hudson and Eddie Murphy
and also great Sound Mixing.

This movie is on my bad list...i will never watch it, think of it again! The acting was horrible, and the whole movie was just bad. I fell asleep during this movie, and my time was better spent sleeping than watching this movie. It is so very slow that you would lose interest within the first couple of minutes. Beyonce needs to pick better roles or better yet, just stick to singing...she is better that way. Eddie Murphy just needed to say NO! His acting along with everyone else was just horrible. I love Jamie Foxx, but this movie was just bad!!!!

I had seen the original Bway production. A neighbor was in the orchestra and took me back stage to meet the cast. The reason it took so long to make was they didnt have anyone to play Effie, cause no one wanted to work with Jennifer Holliday again the BIGGEST B*&%H ever on broadway. Well Jennifer Hudson was better in the film which followed to show very closely. Only thing I missed was the missing Its No Party song sung by the Lorelle character which was a showstopper in the bway show when sung by Loretta Devine (she has a song in the movie) who when I went backstage was so sweet to me - signed my playbill, not like FAT Jennifer B@#*&H Holliday who when I was introduced to her as a neighbor of one of the orchestra said "So" and walked away. Funny isnt it that the PIG has no career cause no one wants to deal with her.

Jenniffer Hudson was teriffic and her singing was really enjoyable. Beyonce as Deana Jones great. CC was really good Cadilac Man Steppin on the bad side Eddie Murphy was at his best. I believe that it should have won best best instead of Departed.
I would recommend
