About the Movie

Director Bill Condon brings his creative vision to life in this Director’s Extended Edition! Experience the big screen adaptation of Tom Eyen’s Tony award-winning Broadway musical in a tale of dreams, stardom, and the high cost of success in the cutthroat recording industry. The time is the 1960s, and singers Effie (Jennifer Hudson), Lorrell (Anika Noni Rose), and Deena (Beyoncé Knowles) are about to find out just what it's like to have their wildest dreams come true. Discovered at a local talent show by ambitious manager Curtis Taylor Jr. (Jamie Foxx), the trio known as "the Dreamettes" is soon offered the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of opening for popular singer James "Thunder" Early (Eddie Murphy). Subsequently molded into an unstoppable hit machine by Taylor and propelled into the spotlight as “the Dreams,” the girls quickly find their bid for the big time taking priority over personal friendship as Taylor edges out of the ultra-talented Effie so that the more beautiful Deena can become the face of the group. Now, as the crossover act continues to dominate the airwaves, the small-town girls with the big-city dreams slowly begin to realize that the true cost of fame may be higher than any of them ever anticipated.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Dreamgirls is the entire musical package, a triumph of old school on-screen glamour, and we wouldn't want it any other way. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: It's a product that promises magic, and yet gives us nothing to live on. – Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: With a star turn like [Jennifer Hudson's] at its center, a movie doesn't need too much more, but Dreamgirls has plenty to go around. – Scott Foundas, Village Voice, Dec 30, 2006

Fresh: Flaws and all, Dreamgirls is certainly a lot more watchable than other recent adaptations of Broadway musicals like Rent, The Producers and The Phantom of the Opera. – Lou Lumenick, New York Post, Jul 16, 2008

A beautiful and classic film. Beyonce is radiant in this role.
