MOVIE: Dream Girls

NUTSHELL: A girl group in 60’s Detroit rises to fame, fortune and dysfunction. Personal drama and power ballads ensue.

GOOD THINGS: Beyonce, Eddie Murphy, Keith Robinson, Danny Glover, Jennifer Hudson’s singing, great costumes and production design

BAD THINGS: I was confused about who was supposed to be sympathetic at times.

FEATURES: Anika Noni Rose, Sharon Leal, Beyonce in an afro, Supremes parallels, Cadillacs

UNCOMFORTABLE MOMENTS: Eddie Murphy performing in front of the KKK in Boca.

NOTABLE: I didn’t feel the new songs fared well next to the original Broadway numbers.

BEST PART: The showstoppah thingy with Jennifer Hudson

BEST LINE: Help me out here, I’m frazzled.

CROWNS: 3 out of 5
