Ultimate Dreamgirl Beyonce Knowles won a richly-deserved Academy Award for her amazing performance.
Beyonce is magnificent!!!
An otherwise knockout movie musical is nearly capsized by the hefty and overbearing girl from America's Got Talent.
If you loved "High School Musical," you'll like "Dreamgirls!"
I understand that in addition to his role as James "Thunder" Early, Murphy was also intent on playing the Beyonce and Jennifer Hudson characters, which may have been more interesting.
GOD WILL THE SINGER NEVER END?!?!? yes i know it was a musical BUT did they have to sing practically everything written on the script? It got so bad that my boyfriend and i began to make jokes and predictions of when we thought another song would sprout. Good movie, but gosh, they couldve cut a bit of those songs!
Good Musical...would be an interesting play to watch in person...but as a movie...ahhh. Even my wife (who loves Musicals) said there was too much siiiiiiinnnnnnnggggggiiiiinngggggg. Theeyyyy sa_ng everrrry....thing. And the end.....you guessed it, very predictable.****'s
Beautiful is all I can say.
OMG Best singing movie ever , A must see if you havn`t seen it
A classic musical, Jennifer Hudson and Eddie Murphy are outstanding!
Beyonce is pure gold! Congrats on the Oscar, Ms. Knowles!
perfect movie for ppl who love musucials.
I was very moved by Beyonce`s performance.
DREAMGIRLS is a powerhouse musical event! Congrats to Beyonce on her Oscar win!
Thoroughly enjoyed the whole movie. Eddie Murphy showed his multi-talentedness. I would surely recommend it. I would rate it at 4 stars.
Beyonce is amazing!

This movie was absolutely amazing. I give my applause to Effy! Effy, you have an amazing singing talent!! I was absolutely on my grip all throughout the movie. And... YOU!! Dream girl`s manager!! You`re sooo sexy!!!!!!

i love it, jennifer was great, i hope she win an osar, i like her , she is a great actor.
Why didn`t they just pay Eddie Murphy to play the "fat girl" role???
This definitely rates above FROM JUSTIN TO KELLY in the pantheon of American Idol movies.
Agreed! This movie belongs to Eddie Murphy and Beyonce! As a performer, Hudson simply isn`t of the same caliber as the explosive Eddie nor can she compare to the beautiful, exciting Beyonce!
"Glitter" was a good movie with a slammin` soundtrack! The best moments in "Dreamgirls" belong to the multi-talented Beyonce Knowles, who seizes centerstage and never looks back; wanna-be American Idol Jennifer Hudson is merely okay -- but you have to consider the dynamic cast of performers vying to make an impression (Knowles, Murphy, Foxx, and Glover).
I don`t know if people are making fun of this movie by comparing it to "Glitter" but I thought Dreamgirls exceeded my expectations. I was thoroughly entertained. I think that Jennifer Hudson`s performance surpassed Beyonce`s performance quite a bit, but the movie as a whole, was good.
Breathtaking Beyonce will blow you away!
Foxx proves RAY was no fluke, and you can`t help but love Beyonce in her finest screen role to date!
Best Hollywood musical since GLITTER; Beyonce`s performance is the stuff of legend!
Beyonce gives the performance of the year!
W-O-W!!! Jennifer Hudson`s performance was MIND-BLOWING!!! Also, Eddie Murphy deserved EVERY single nomination they got for the Oscars!
Beyonce is magnetic -- you can`t take your eyes off her!!!
Great flick! Eddie Murphy deserves an Oscar! He should have played the fat girl, too!
OMG!! this movie was AMAZING!!! i absolutly LOVED it!!!<3
This is my favorite movie!! I thinks its great that Beyonce is recognized as an extremely talentes singer as well as a fantastic actress! Its great!!! <3 it!!
I loved the movie, it shows how a promising singer played by Jennifer Hudson is shoved aside for the better looking one, unfair but such is life, and how drugs which Eddie Murphy`s character plays gets out of control which is reality for some people, great performances, my favorite movie this year.
Good music, that`s all.
I did not enjoy that movie, way too long.
I can`t believe this movie only has 3.7 stars!! I loved it - Beyonce was great but Jennifer Hudson was fabulous!! The only thing I didn`t care for was the singing of talking parts (in a few places) but again the singing was really good in those parts too. Very much for those who enjoy musicals
Foxx and Murphy are great, but it`s Beyonce who walks off with the picture.
Far and away the best movie since FAR AND AWAY.
SPECTACULAR! Beyonce gives the knockout performance of the year!
"Dreamgirls" is the greatest motion picture musical since "Glitter!" Beyonce is electric!!!!!
With DREAMGIRLS, Beyonce proves "Nobody Does It Better!"
Ouch. Really should have left the cringe-inducing, cheesy parts on the cutting room floor. It just "whoosh", takes you out of the pace of the movie when they start to do the singing-talking bits, like that awful part about family. The rest of the movie would have been way better without those bits. That type of musical has really had it`s day, and even though it is set in the 60`s/70`s, sensibilites have changed since then. A treat for the eye, and some wonderful performances. Eddie Murphy proves he doesn`t have to dress in a fat woman or man`s costume to be funny. Go see it, you have been warned!
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!
