DreamgirlsBy a customer from Reading, England , 26 Jan 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]Every one of the stars I have rated goes to Jennifer Hudson. Without her being in the movie, her fantastic voice and sassy character, I wouldn't have enjoyed the movie. She totally overshadowed Beyonce both with her singing ability and character. She is a real talent and moved me to tears twice. The talky-singing stuff was quite cringe worthy and in my opinion did not do the movie any favours. Beyonce of course looked stunning on occasions but not so much on others, less is more when it comes to make up she looks far more like a movie star when she is a little under-done.
On the whole, a good movie, but only due to Jennifer's four big performances!

Mostly Dreamy....By TheCoach (19 reviews) from Southampton , 20 Jul 2012It takes a while to get going, but once it does, the payoff is worth the short wait. Excellent musical and acting performances from all - especially from those who you may not expect to deliver much. Give it a watch!
Dreamgirls steal the showBy RussnEmma (387 reviews) from London, England , 16 Apr 2012Very good musical adaption with some great tunes thrown in. If you enjoy movies about the 60s then you'll love this.
Hudson's lungs save the dayBy a customer , 03 Apr 2012The singing was fantastic but whenever Jenifer Hudson's character wasn't around, it got a little boring. Overall I enjoyed it and would recommend it.
Jennifer steals the showBy qwerrty (8 reviews) , 07 Mar 2012Jennifer Hudson is outstanding. The story is a bit patchy. Not sure that I would necessarily recommend it to anyone as being brilliant, but its worth seeing so that you know what the story is.
AwfulBy a customer from Wales , 27 Jan 2012Don't bother with this film - I like a musical don't get me wrong but this was a terrible long boring film :((
