      • May 01, 2021

        Obviously the songs are great and they lead to some truly memorable scenes (the stage musical is a classic for a reason) but overall this plays like a typical biopic stuck on montage mode for most of the movie.

        A colorful, lively, well-executed musical-film, Dreamgirls is a must-see spectacle. Jennifer Hudson steals the show with powerhouse vocals and a vulnerable debut performance. The film never lags, always entertains, and features beautiful music. It is an ultimately uplifting experience.

        The definitive musical of the rise to fame and the fall from grace. Dazzling, engaging and wonderfully acted, it leaves me bewildered that ''Dreamgirls'' didn't get a Best Picture nomination in 2007.
